Xbox and PC adventure 'Past Cure' gets mind-bending launch trailer

Today, developer Phantom 8 released the launch trailer for Past Cure and it's quite exhilarating. The game is a supernatural story-driven experience set to launch on Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4 on February 23, 2018.

Past Cure places you in the shoes of Ian, a former special operations soldier unsure of his surroundings, and desperate to make sense of the last few years. After being the victim of experimentation and torture in prison, Ian's mind is fractured. His captors leave him scarred with unrelenting nightmares, visions, and new unstable and largely unexplainable powers such as time manipulation and telekinesis. According to the developer, drifting between reality and hallucinogenic states, Ian must make sense of the world around him as he sets out on a path of revenge and discovery, uncertain of what awaits around the next turn.

Simon Gerdesmann, Phantom 8's Managing Director, issued the following statement alongside the launch trailer.

We've been delighted with the positive response to Past Cure from gamers around the world, and we're excited to finally see people playing what has been our passion to create for the last two years. To achieve what we have as a small, eight-person first-time development studio makes us immensely proud. And, we're not finished yet; there's more to come from the Past Cure universe, as we'll announce soon.

Past Cure features supernatural elements, stealth gameplay, and numerous abilities you don't see outside of games like Quantum Break. Hopefully the game will live up to expectations when it launches in a day.
