World War II survival horror game Trenches releases this weekend. Set in the trenches of the Great War, the game has players take on the role of a soldier trapped behind enemy lines. As if the horrors of war aren’t enough, the game adds psychological and surreal terrors to the labyrinth of trenches players must escape from in their journey. Publisher Ratalaika Games and developer Steelkrill Studio showcase the war-time terrors in a new trailer for the indie horror game. Check it out here:
Trenches is not for the faint of heart, nor is it for those uninitiated to the survival horror genre. But it should prove exhilarating for hardcore fans of indie horror. The game only allows for one save, forcing players to evade death at all costs. The clues reset for each playthrough. But players still have tools at their disposal, from bottles to throw for distracting enemies to a trench whistle. Blowing the trench whistle will alert players to clues, but it may also alert unwanted supernatural attention…
In a press release, Ratalaika Games explains that the title offers randomized actions and scares, two different game modes, and even more surprises in store. One surprise right off the bat is that the game is made by only one developer. Trenches has been in early access for the last two years. The developer has continued to work on the game and listen to player feedback in that time. As of this weekend, Trenches officially releases out of early access.
Players can now fully explore the war-torn environment of Trenches and face the horrors within. The game has released on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, and PC. The indie horror game prices at just $9.99, and Steam offers it for $8.99 until January 27th.
