The award-winning third-person Norse horror adventure, Through the Woods, is going to be shown off at this year’s Gamescom. 1C together with Antagonist have announced that the game is going to have its PC release in October 2016.

Here’s the game’s Steam trailer:

Through the Woods Steam Trailer

Through the Woods immerses the player in the dark, mysterious atmosphere of a deep forest. The forest is lit only by the moon and a hand torch, in which fear and uncertainty are fed by darkness. The independent Norwegian game studio Antagonist have created a realistic – but supremely eerie – game environment, spiced up with a thrilling story and dangerous mythological creatures.

The game has following features:

  • Explore stunning environments and experience stories inspired by Norse mythology, Norwegian art, and nature
  • Uncover dark tales of the past and present through reactive narration
  • Creative use of light and darkness generate deceptive environments
  • A frightening journey, accompanied by grim, beautiful sound design

Through the Woods can be found on Steam and has its own website.

Reasons as to why so much nudity exists in any game remains unclear. If people want to see it, they can simply go online and satisfy themselves, so it is ultimately pointless in games and makes them unplayable for people like me.

The game is age rated 18 so I find no problem with this being the case. Watch dogs 2 is meant to be set in a hardened corrupt world and naked homeless people would help to show this.

I understand what you mean Jacob. Logically, in fact, your argument makes perfect sense. I feel like the level of explicitness, however, especially when it comes to detail, may be a little too much for some people. Also, it’s odd that designers would go out of their way to do this in the first place.

But killing and slaughtering people is okay, right?

David Lozada

It depends on what market you’re chasing after and feedback from consumers, as well as your publisher’s policies. Ubisoft formally apologized and removed the nudity with a patch, meaning that they themselves felt uncomfortable with the content.
