Kholat horror video game based on real events
After PC and PS4 gamers, it’s now the time for Xbox One owners to experience the horror, the unknown, and the unsolved mystery of a tragedy that took place on the Dyatlov Pass almost 60 years ago. Kholat – an FPP horror game based on true events – will launch on Microsoft’s console on June 9th this year.
Kholat is a unique adventure horror game that to date has sold more than 500,000 copies on PC and PS4. On June 9th this year, Xbox One owners will also get the chance to experience the chilling, dread-filled atmosphere of the Ural Mountains and discover a story based on actual events that took place 58 years ago.
It took some time, but it’s almost here! Kholat on Xbox One is finally happening, and IMGN.PRO is excited to share the news with all the gamers that have been patiently waiting for the game to be available on their favorite console. On June 9th this year, fans of horror and unsolved mysteries will be able to purchase Kholat from the Xbox Store for 19,99 USD, but that’s not the end of the good news! A week before launch on June 2nd, pre-orders for the game will start.
Łukasz Kubiak, co-author of the game’s narrative, says: “We never thought that Kholat would become so popular. Thanks to the amazing feedback we have received from players around the world, today we are proud to announce the game’s upcoming launch on Xbox One. At the same time we’re aware that our fans have many questions and that there are many theories and assumptions concerning the events we have presented in our story. All I can say right now is that, looking at how big our community has become, answers to those questions may emerge in the future.”
Kholat is an FPP storytelling/experience game with horror elements developed by independent studio and global publisher IMGN.PRO. The title is inspired by the true events of the “Dyatlov Pass incident”, which took the lives of nine Russian students who went on an expedition in the northern Ural Mountains. The team never reached its goal, and the entire crew died in strange circumstances that have yet to be explained. The mystery has given rise to many theories and much speculation. In Kholat, gamers follow their own path, gradually sinking into the hostile environment. There is only one objective – to find out what happened. Everything is tied together by the fantastic narration by Sean Bean.
