FEAR was a great game for its time, with its scares and slow-mo goodness, but some of Monolith Productions' former developers have formed a new studio, Blackpowder Games, and announced their first new title: Betrayal.

Betrayal is a colonial-era, first-person shooter, set in 1604 where ghosts and mysteries are in high numbers in a high-contrast world. Betrayal has been made with the help of Unreal Engine 3, and will give players weapons from the era, including crossbows, muskets and axes. Players will be searching the lands for survivors and solving mysteries.

 

Creative Director of Betrayal, Craig Hubbard, said: "We wanted to get back to crafting games more intuitively. There's a sense of discovery and excitement when you navigate by instinct rather than market research and open yourself up to opportunities that arise during development." Betrayal will hit Steam Early Access on August 14 for $15.
