News | Action-adventure game Hell is Us announced

Publisher Nacon has announced the action-adventure game Hell is Us.

The game is being developed by Montreal developer Rogue Factor and is set to be released on Steam, Epic Games Store, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X and S in 2023. The game will run on Unreal Engine 5.

Hell is Us is set in a nation in a civil war. Meanwhile, the land is also under attack from mysterious creatures created by an event called the ‘Calamity’. The main character uses special weapons to fight his way through these creatures.

The creative director of the game is Jonathan Jacques-BellĂȘtete, the former art director at Eidos Montreal. He previously worked on games such as Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Mankind Divided and also created artwork for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.

“Our goal is to bring back a real sense of adventure and exploration,” Jacques-BellĂȘtete said in a press release received by Game Informer. “There doesn’t have to be an elaborate quest log or a precise arrow on the map: we want players to experience the thrill of the adventure and be guided by their gut feeling and instinct.”
