Survivors!
On the 30th of April, Fade To Silence will emerge from Early Access and at the same time also be released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The suggested retail price will be $39,99/39,99€ on PC. Console editions will be at $49,99 / 49,99€.

New Content and Features in the Release Version
  • Experience the final story line, telling the history of Ash, his daughter Alice and the apocalypse that befell the world. Players will find out how it all came to pass, who is responsible for the eternal winter, and what role the entity, known as Inner Voice, holds in all of this.
  • The story will be told in dream sequences. Whenever Ash is resting there is a chance for him to experience mysterious dream snippets in which the story unfolds.
  • We have completely overhauled the tutorial phase in the beginning of the game. Fade To Silence is a complex game that needs explanation, especially for first-time players. So the reworked tutorials offer players a streamlined pacing, and safer learning spaces where they can learn the mechanics of the game.
  • In the new survival book, you can look-up game and survival mechanics. This is a new feature that helps you to better familiarize yourselves with the game. As new mechanics are introduced, an entry will be added to the survival book which you can look-up at any time in the game.
  • Access the dream gallery to watch the unlocked dream sequences in chronological order. The dream sequences are broken down cut-scenes and appear in a random order. To enable you to revisit your dreams, and experience them in chronological order, each unlocked dream sequence is displayed in a dedicated gallery.
  • Enjoy new and reworked “quality of life” features. Our designers reworked the UI and HUD to improve accessibility and clarity, improved the game economy and overall balancing. In addition, the combat system will be fairer and more responsive.
We will use the time until release to continue to polish the game, work on performance, and fix bugs. Watch out for a full change-log on release.
Prepare for the final chapter!
Fade to Silence :: The END is NIGH! Fade To Silence will leave Steam Early Access on 30th April 2019 (YES, we are that confident!)

Is that Frank Welker doing the evil-sounding voice over? If so, holy shit, if not, that sounds a lot like him!
But I mean, hell, I was sold by the dog sled, so I'm a pushover.

I have a no 'early access' buy policy for myself (crowdfunding not withstanding), so I guess I'll wait to see what the word is next month

I loved what I played of the EA; can’t wait for the full release! Snow setting + Eldritch horrors? Hell yes! :smiling-face-with-open-mouth:

Ah, thanks. That's what I was afraid of. I don't mind slower, limited movesets... if there are other things to keep me going while using them over and over again. Sounds like I'll stay on this side of the fence on this one for now. Thanks Queen!

from what i read/saw so far the launch version got some crashing problems so hopefully they will fix it soon ... not much reports on the newly added storymode yet probably because of that ... combat has been supposedly heavily improved compared to Early Access but not sure if enought to get rid of some of the clunkyness :)

I've skimmed some reviews, the majority of them gave it a mediocre review in the range of 5-6. In fact, it's sitting at 55 on Metacritic so far.

Too bad, a survival game with story focus sounds like my kind of game.

oh lol ... totally forgot to check the reviews 🙃 been annoyed by gaming press so much recentůy that i mostly ignore it altohether

So far the common thread is bad technical state and "too hardcore and unexplayed" mehanics .... didnt really got much info about the newly added storybeats in the reviews

In the end guess it seems to be another of those "wait and check in few months" deals
