The Game Awards hasn’t started but Valve’s digital platform, Steam, just confirmed a brand new game called Fade to Black from THQ Nordic.

The character-driven Survival RPG game was supposedly going to be revealed after the THQ Nordic‘s reveal site timer expired. Apparently Fade to Silence will be an Early Access game, according to the listing, and is described as:

“We believe nothing is a more personal game-experience than a survival game. Our goal is to develop something that drags you deep into the cold and deadly world of an apocalyptic winter. Therefore, for us this game will only be perfect if we can get feedback from the community. Early Access is designed for that.”

The Early Access version of the game will include:

  • Construct, upgrade and defend your refuge
  • Rescue and recruit followers
  • Coordinate your followers for resource management
  • Combat a variety of eldritch monstrosities
  • Go out on expeditions with your followers on your wolf sled
  • Explore the initial release of the game world, roughly 10 km2 area, under dynamic snowfall and time of day
  • All the while trying to survive the deadly blizzards in this post-apocalyptic world.

The final release is scheduled for August 2018.
