Not even a week ago, we showed the trailer for Quantum Error, the first confirmed horror game for the PlayStation 5, and now a duo from none other than TeamKill media has exposed a little more about the game in an interview with Lovecraft Video Games.
The outlet interviewed “Micah” and Dakoda Jones” from TeamKill Media, and they painted a new picture of this game in a light that I don’t think anyone really expected. In that interview, the two insiders were asked about the story line and, while they couldn’t say much, they did point out that the game has a very interesting storyline – one that seems like a blend of Dead Space and Bloodborne, among others.
“You play as Jacob Thomas from the Garboa district in San Francisco and you are dispatched with a crew and your partner Shane Costa to rescue any survivors. Something goes very wrong with the personnel in the facility. This is really only the very tip of the iceberg for the story, but we don’t want to spoil it.”
Now, this plot of the story sounds really familiar right, we’ll there’s a lot more to it than that. The development team has, reportedly, taken ideas from different cultures and different eras as well.
“There’s going to be a lot of different ideas from different cultures and eras. The foundation of a lot of the concepts come from Gnosticism, and core story elements include Hindu and Buddhist practices but twisted upside down.”
Apparently, in terms of the “biggest inspirations for the narrative and characters,” the team too games like Odyssey, Xenogears, and Metal Gear. Yet the developers are also going for something “that is on that Dead Space or Doom level” Later on in the interview, TeamKill Media explained how FPS combat will play a vital role in the game, but stressed that there will also be different obstacles and puzzles to solve as well.
For those of you hoping for a new horror-themed VR experience, you’ll need to look elsewhere, though, as the team has no intention of developing for VR but did leave the door open by saying it “would be really cool.”
For now, we don’t know when Quantum Error is going to launch, but the team was adamant that it would be available for both the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. However, it was also said that the game was being built for the PS5 system first, so when the game launches it’ll be next-gen ready.
I don’t know about you, but we can’t wait to see Quantum Error in action.
