Darkwood set to release on PS4, Switch, and Xbox One later this month

After spooking computer players in 2017, Darkwood is now crawling onto consoles of all three stripes. Here’s a new trailer telling you when it’ll be out.

Polish developer Acid Wizard Studio has announced that its acclaimed survival horror title Darkwood will be releasing on consoles later this month. Specifically, the PS4 version will be out on 14th May, the Switch version will be out on 16th May, and the Xbox One version will be out on 17th May.

There’s a new trailer for the game to go with the console release date announcement. Have a look below:

Darkwood originally released on PC, Mac, and Linux back in August 2017. Before that, it was in Early Access for three full years.

Here’s what the Poland-set game is about, according to the devs:

Darkwood is a challenging survival horror that does not rely on jump scares. Craft weapons, prepare traps, fortify hideouts – you will explore and scavenge the eerie forests of the Soviet Bloc by day, then hunker down in your hideout at night. With nightmarish forces corrupting the woods, wait and pray for the sun to come up the next morning.

The game features a choice and consequence system, so that the decisions you make in the game will affect your surroundings and non-player characters. The game also advertises a lack of such aids as quest markers.

Darkwood has a “Strong” score of 79 on OpenCritic, and an 80 on MetaCritic. It also has a “Very Positive” reception on Steam, out of over 3,700 user reviews.
