The chilling, first-person psychological adventure game The Town of Light has confirmed the release date as June 6. Featuring numerous improvements and new supporting content for its console debut, The Town of Light is headed to Xbox One thanks to a partnership with THQNordic.
A live action trailer, featuring the heart-rending track ‘I Will Find You’ from Icelandic singer-songwriter Sóley, has been released alongside the announcement to highlight the story-driven game’s reality-grounded premise, lending further insight into the fictional story of Renée. Set in the Volterra Psychiatric Asylum – a former mental treatment facility based in Tuscany, Italy – The Town of Light is based on extensive research and inspired by first-hand accounts of the asylum’s patients.
Town of Light has been on my radar for some time but I finally got my hands on it at EGX Rezzed in London. The harrowingly beautiful graphics and eerie narration give me a chill just thinking about it. I am looking forward to getting my hands on the full game next month.
