Many months ago, a game called Agony caught our attention. It's coming to Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4 on May 29, 2018 for $39.99. We don't know much about the title, but we do know that it takes place in Hell and features a terrifying story.
There were rumors that the game would feature multiple modes but today we got confirmation. "Agony Mode" is a permadeath mode where you only get one chance at completing the adventure. Not only do you have to avoid being devoured by the ungodly creatures that inhabit that plane, but you also have to solve quests and uncover other mysteries.
Today, Madmind Studios released a new trailer which showcases the mode and tormented souls awakening in a nightmare world. The video sets the tone for the horrific, immersive world of Agony where we get another glimpse of what the journey entails. You must survive and solve the riddle behind the mysterious "Red Goddess". The Red Goddess is the architect of Hell, and the sole entity with knowledge of how escape.
Since its announcement, Agony has been one of my most anticipated upcoming horror games. Hopefully the title will deliver when it launches in a week. It's unclear if the game supports Xbox One X as the developer didn't provide any details about the platform.
Updated May 22, 2018: We've added the trailer which reveals more about the mode.
