Moons of Madness is an upcoming cosmic horror title that is set in the same universe as Secret World Legends, coming to Xbox One, PS4, and PC. Slated to arrive in the Halloween season this year, it’s set on Mars in a not-so-distant future. Moons of Madness aims to combine the exploration of the Red Planet as well as Lovecraftian dread and horror.
Players control Shane Newehart, who is a technician stationed at the Invictus – a secret research base built by the Orochi group. Since you have a low-security clearance, you have no idea what supernatural dread lurks in the darkness of Mars. Your job is simply to keep the lights on until the transport ship Cyrano arrives bringing with it a new team to take over your duties.
“With Funcom’s support we have been given the opportunity to do all the things we wanted to do with the game and the story,” said Ivan Moen, CEO of Rock Pocket Games. “Moons of Madness has been an internal passion project of ours, one that we’ve worked on in-between other titles for other publishers, and now being able to fully focus on it and put all our creative energy into it is a dream come true.”
