Project Wight gameplay: What is Project Wight?

Project Wight

Project Wight is a horror-type game, although looking at the gameplay trailer we don't see where the horror comes from. Other than survival, attack and defence play styles, we see this as a great open-world RPG.

Looking at the trailer above, we can see how the game will look like. It is a first-person open-world RPG game that puts you in control of a creature - one that is hunted by humans. This is a different approach and one that we like to see - a view from 'The Outsiders' as the devs put it.

You start the game as a young creature seeing your father (also a creature) being tortured and used as a 'trophy' catch by humans. You escape from humans into small caves and grow into a stronger creature.

Towards the end of the video we see the creature killing humans and showcasing its prowess - we're excited to see how the game unfolds and we're looking forward to see more details on it!

It should be noted that the game is created by ex-Battlefield developers, meaning a lot of work and expert-knowledge is being funnelled into this game - as it stands there are 12 people working on the game. Also see: How to play games on Facebook Messenger
