Ebb Software has debuted its new first-person horror adventure game, Scorn, showcased among the first wave of Xbox Series X titles at Microsoft's first gameplay showcase. Unveiled via a chilling atmospheric trailer, the trailer offers a grim, gore-heavy tone — a glimpse of the overall setting for the project.

Scorn has been in development for over half a decade, with a recent delay seeing the game land among early Xbox Series X titles. The studio stresses an emphasis on the environment as an integral "character" to the experience, with each location featuring distinct stories and puzzles, shaping an identity throughout.

The unsettling tone notably channels themed popularized by H.R. Giger, an artist famed for his contributions toward the Alien franchise.

Scorn is headed to Xbox Series X and Windows PC, with no mention of Xbox One or PlayStation platforms, as of reveal.

  • This was one of the more disturbing trailers I've seen in awhile. Giger would be proud.
  • This looked OK. Like an upgraded One game. We need Windows Central to do a big article on The Medium. There is some amazing articles about that game. A true next Gen experience. The developer has spoke about it tons after the reveal. And confirmed its made from the ground up for Series X. No Xbox One version.
