Coming this October 4 Anthology of Fear, a unique psychological horror that tells the story of a mysterious disappearance, will be released on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S consoles.

Previously, Anthology of Fear appeared on PC and Nintendo Switch, and a PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 release is also planned for 2023.
OhDeer Studio and 100 GAMES are responsible for developing Anthology of Fear. Ultimate Games S.A. is the publisher of the game for Xbox One. Thanks to backward compatibility, the title also works on Xbox Series X|S.

Anthology of Fear is a unique psychological horror game with gameplay shown from a first-person perspective and stylish audiovisual design. The gameplay is based primarily on exploration, puzzle-solving, and investigation.
The game tells the story of Nathan’s disappearance and also includes many side plots that are closely related to the mysterious disappearance. Among other things, we learn the story from the perspective of his brother, Ethan, who is looking for him. The protagonist conducts a one-man investigation and searches for the truth, although this is not easy and leads to a confrontation with what seems surreal and difficult to understand.
„Anthology of Fear is a horror game with a linear story, in which there is no shortage of paranormal and tragic experiences, a sense of being hounded, and horrors lurking in the recesses of the human subconscious. The tension and suffocating atmosphere here are enhanced by both evocative visuals and sound design that is appropriately adapted to the situation. This is also a game that touches on the issue of severe mental disorders, in which it alludes to the real world,” says COO of Ultimate Games S.A., Rafał Jelonek.
The title consists of several chapters, and the gameplay is enriched by presenting the story from the perspective of several different characters. As the developers emphasize, it takes an average of 2.5 to 4.5 hours to complete the game.
