Scorn, the Very Bloody Horror Game Inspired By H.R. Giger, Has a Release Date

Scorn, the upcoming “biopunk” survival horror adventure game inspired by H.R. Giger, has a release date. It will release on October 21, and will be available day One on Xbox Game Pass.

The new trailer shows a decrepit world, bloody skin, and an umbilical cord. It looks appropriately gory and horrifying, as befits a game that takes inspiration from Giger, who also provided the imagery for Alien.

The description suggests you will play as a skinless humanoid on a nightmare alien planet, with various biomechanical weapons that can be attached to your body.

One thing is for sure: This game does look a lot like Alien, making its release date, which is quite close to Halloween, pretty much perfect.

The Scorn announcement was part of the Xbox + Bethesda Showcase, which has also included Redfall, a new Silksong trailer, and more. Stay tuned for lots more coverage of the Summer of Gaming continues.
