With Call of Duty: WWII bringing the spotlight to World War II again, there’s still interest in focusing on The Great War. German indie developer StrixLab certainly have with their first-person horror effort in Ad Infinitum, which was recently revealed in the game’s first trailer.
Running on the Unreal Engine 4, the game has been up on Steam Greenlight since 2015, where you can also check out concept images and test renders by the team. The story for the game hasn’t been entirely revealed, but you play as a soldier in the trenches, and are being hunted by otherworldly creatures. You need to solve puzzles to clear your path, as well as focus on stealth to avoid being detected.
Being that this is an Unreal game, the thing looks gorgeous, and is definitely on the right track for creating the expectedly bleak and terrifying atmosphere against the backdrop of one of the deadliest wars in history. No release date as of yet, but you can follow the team’s Twitter, where they hope to have an announcement for a pre-Alpha demo soon.
