A PS5-exclusive survival shooter titled Abandoned, has been revealed on Sony on the PlayStation Blog. It’s created by the Dutch developer Blue Box Game Studio and is a cinematic survival first-person shooter with plenty of horror elements. The studio also has a teaser trailer showing of the game.
Abandoned’s star is Jason Longfield, an amnesiac who must escape from a mysterious forest. He must find food, and ammo to fight or sneak his way out of this forest. As the blog post revealed, Abandoned is not just a simple first-person shooter. For example, if Jason is out of breath from sprinting, his aim will suffer and the firing rater on all the weapons will slow. So it’s more like a mix of fighting and hiding.
Abandoned will make use of the DualSense controller and the PS5’s support for 3D audio to create what Blue Box is hoping will be an impressive title. Though the trailer appears to run at a low framerate, the blog says that Abandoned will target 60fps and run at 4K. A gameplay video will be arriving soon.
Abandoned has a very similar feel to the recent Blair Witch game which released back in 2019. It also looks a lot like the upcoming Resident Evil Village and it’s prequel, Resident Evil 7.
