THE PARK by FUNCOM TO LAUNCH ON PLAYSTATION 4 AND XBOX ONE

Funcom, from Oslo Norway, is excited to announce today that ‘The Park‘, the company’s brand new single-player psychological horror experience, will be unleashing its scares on PlayStation® 4 and on Xbox One consoles via the ID@Xbox self-publishing program in Q1 2016. After a successful launch for Windows PC during Halloween this year, Funcom is looking forward to once again opening the gates to its horror theme park in what will be the company’s first console release in almost ten years.

“Encouraged by the positive reactions we have received on the Windows PC version, we are very excited about bringing it to consoles,” says Funcom CEO Rui Casais. “Exploring a dark, sinister and frankly terrifying location from the comfort of your sofa, with the lights turned off and controller in hand, is sure to be a very rewarding experience.”the_park_1

 

Offering up a psychological horror story set in a unique and unusual setting, ‘The Park‘ generated a lot of attention when it premiered during Halloween this year.

About Fionna Schweit

Hi, Im fionna Fox! and i love video games. I have been playing video games since I could reach the keyboard. My first PC was a gateway (though dont ask me to recall the model number) and I remember starting most of my games out of DOS. Those were interesting years. My first console system was an Nintendo 64, on which i played a lot of GoldenEye and StarFox 64 and even more gauntlet dark legacy. Now i mostly play PC games, though i do own a Xbox one (mostly for halo). My favorite types of games are rogue likes, and anything thats an RTS, I have a soft spot for anything in the Warhammer universe as well.
