The game is a first-person horror survival experience where a player can form a research team with up to 4 players and explore an open world filled with mysteries and unsolved questions, or the player if enough skilful can also try to do it all on your own.
The story of the game began two years back on an Island named Granichny which became the centre of a large-scale disaster of unknown origin. “The New Light” as a united group, covered up this catastrophic event and now their main job is to rectify the consequences.
There is a massive campaign called “Volunteers” which consist of people who have never held a weapon in their hands are sent to the Island to find the strange activities of the island and to gather information and take responsibility of dangerous tasks, all in hope of rectifying the mistakes of the past. And no one of those people knows what lies ahead of them.
You need to play the role of a Volunteer who will explore the spooky island which is filled with threats of every shape and size, beginning from monsters and madmen to supernatural anomalies and with an addition of unpredictable weather patterns. Some of the different characteristics are presented and explained as:
Dark Past: which is basically the exploring job you need to do for gathering essential data about the incident that took place on the island from old houses, notes left by the previous settlers etc.
