Polish developer IMGN.PRO has released the first gameplay trailer for its first-person action adventure game Kholat. Titled ‘The Path’, the video shows off a bit of the game’s ‘chilling’ and treacherous environment. The noise of the wind, crunching of your steps in the snow, and mysterious whispers and shadows all contribute to a creepy, atmospheric experience. While watching the trailer, keep in mind that the location shown -- one of many featured in the open-world of Kholat -- is pre-alpha and does not fully represent the quality of the final build: [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sTfwU9bNOuM?rel=0&showinfo=0&w=700&h=394] In Kholat, gamers follow the path of a group of Russian students that went for an expedition in the northern Ural Mountains. Due to some unfortunate and unexplained circumstances, the team never reached its goal, with every single member dying. When a rescue expedition is sent to unravel the mystery, strange things are discovered: the tent in which the students rested has been cut from the inside, while their incompletely dressed bodies are found within a radius of several hundred meters. All signs point to an unexplained event that caused sudden panic, a chaotic escape and the eventual death of the whole group. Years after the actual events, you (the player) are thrown into the area where the tragedy occurred in hopes that you will discover the real cause of tragic events. As if the plot wasn’t interesting enough, Kholat is actually inspired by the ‘Dyatlov Pass Incident’, a true event that involved the mysterious deaths of nine ski hikers in the northern Ural mountains on the night of February 2nd, 1959. The lack of eyewitnesses resulted in much speculation, with bewildered Soviet investigators simply claiming that “a compelling natural force” had caused the deaths. Developed exclusively for the PC, Kholat launches sometime in the first quarter of 2015. What did you think about the trailer?
