Inspired by notable artists like H.R. Giger (Alien), Scorn is totally an atmospheric FPS horror adventure project, according to developer Ebb. H.R. Giger was a Swiss artist who was widely known for making airbrushed pictures. He blended human physiques with machines in his works. This art style is mostly known as “biomechanical”. In a way, it’s a fascinating way of showing and conveying imagination and abstract thoughts.

Xbox exclusive Scorn details and release date

Scorn’s story is set in a nightmarish world of weird forms and somber tapestry. Ebb Software says that the plot revolves around the concept of ‘being thrown into the world’. The game deals with being lost inside a dark environment. While playing it, players will experience various interrelated areas in a very non-linear manner. And of course, the overall unsettling atmosphere will act as a character in itself.

In this Xbox exclusive, every particular location has its own theme, puzzles, and mysterious characters. They are all integral in creating this entire, cohesive world of Scorn, says Ebb. Additionally, players will have options to enhance their skills and weapons as they progress through each quest. This means they can acquire extra fighting abilities when necessary, depending on the challenges.

As for the release of Scorn on Xbox Series X and Series S, the schedule is set for the next year in October. However, the exact date is still a mystery, as Ebb has only confirmed the arrival window, not the day of launch. It seems like those gamers who were anticipating it early, will have to keep patience in the meantime. But hopefully, the wait will be worth it, as per Ebb’s description of the upcoming game so far.

What are your thoughts on Scorn? Will you play it on your Xbox when it eventually comes out in 2022?
