Indie game developer, Incendium, announced today that their new game — Phantom Halls, will be launching on Steam via Early Access. The new game is a unique take on the squad-based genre, as players can take roles of multiple characters at once.
Check out the official description of the game down below:
A group of teens enters a haunted mansion and prepares to face the undead terrors that stalk the phantom halls. Squad up and survive the night using whatever you can find, but remember – you can’t kill what you can’t see, so be sure to bring a flashlight…
In addition, Incendium announced that the game will offer players official Evil Dead 2 content. Early adopters of the game will receive a free Evil Dead 2 character (Ash Williams) and a brand new quest pack. Check out both why Incendium chose Early Access, as well as a new trailer showcasing the upcoming title’s gameplay down below:
“We’re launching on Steam Early Access at a heavily discounted price, and treating every early adopter to a free piece of Evil Dead 2 licensed content, allowing them to play as the groovy hero from the sky Ash Williams, with his chainsaw and boomstick on hand (or stump!) to saw and blast through a series of unique Evil Dead 2 inspired quests!”
He added: “Early Access is a fantastic testing bed for the core game to determine what features are most desired and what people want to see next – Phantom Halls will be fully supported and iterated upon in the months ahead as we work towards a full retail build and re-imagine more classic horror icons through the game’s quirky satirical lens.”
Phantom Halls is available today via Steam Early Access for a special price of $6.99 / £5.99. The initial version of the game will feature ten playable characters, 12 enemy types, and a procedurally generated multi-storey mansion with half a dozen distinct environment types.
