Hellish adventure 'Agony' gets terrifying story trailer

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.

Today, Madmind Studios released a new trailer which showcases tormented souls awakening in a nightmare world. The video sets the tone for the horrific, immersive world of Agony where we get our first 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 on how escape.

The main mechanic of the game appears to be the ability to possess demons and other souls to find a way out of Hell. Players who love single-player games will be delighted to know that Agony features a full-fledged story mode as well as an open challenge system that randomly generates levels for gamers to explore and gain high scores.

Since its announcement, Agony has been one of my most anticipated upcoming horror games. Hopefully the title will deliver when it launches in a few weeks. It's unclear if the game supports Xbox One X as the developer didn't provide any details about the platform. We'll keep you posted as soon as we know more.
