For any FPS gamer, they may have noticed a trend among the games they love lately. Be it Battlefield 1, Call of Duty and the like, games are popping up like weeds set in one of the World Wars. Well, there’s a new man in the trenches and it’s a game called Ad Infinitum.
Ad Infinitum is being developed by StrixLab out of Hamburg, Germany and, what started as a university project, has turned into a full fledged game. Set in WWI, this game strays away from the more common first-person shooter and goes straight to survival horror.
The game will be first-person, single player, and there will be no combat ability in the game play. In the game, you are most likely a soldier in the trenches on the front line of war. If worrying about enemy fire was bad enough, you’re being chased by grisly creatures.
The only way to escape them is to clear a path by solving puzzles and hiding from your enemies. Based from historical information, they have created a scary as shit fictional story from the very real effects of war.
Whether the creatures are a true manifestation of the atrocities or the mind’s result of the horrors the protagonist has seen, they are nonetheless real to the character and very dangerous. Check out the trailer.
Hot DAMN, that’s a good looking game. As of right now, PC seems like the only platform it will be released on but there’s a lot we still don’t know, so anything can happen. It’s being developed on the Unreal Engine 4 and you can keep up to date about what the community is saying on their steam page.
Just by the look of it, it’s movement mechanics look like it could take some getting use to but that’s just total speculation and, again, we honestly don’t really know much yet about the game, except that it looks completely bad ass and utterly terrifying.
We will keep you up to date on any new info on the game’s development and when a release date is announced.
If tabletop games are more your thing, there is a new addition to the Fallout universe coming soon that you can check out here.
