Get Even was first announced back in January of 2014. Being developed by The Farm 51 (the developer best known for Painkiller: Hell & Damnation) in collaboration with Bandai Namco — Get Even promised to blend single player and multiplayer into one distorted game world.
Here’s an official overview:
Face in the dirt. Ears filled with screams. Wake up, prisoner. You need to…. ‘….breathe’ ….remember. A girl. A chair. A bomb. Just keep… ‘…calm…’ pushing backwards. Follow the voice, the deep red voice. Wires. Deep in the skull. Deep in your memory. Deep in your pain. You must… ‘…relax…’ …search. The blackest of memories. The darkest of truths. Deep in your mind. You’ve already lost… Can you still find grace? The clock is tricking. ‘…It’s all part of the treatment.’
Creating immersion through an unparalleled dive into 3D acoustics thanks to the support of the cutting-edge Auro-3D technology from Auro Technologies, Get Even challenges you to question your understanding of justice and reality. What is real? Your understanding of the past, is what will shape the outcome of your future. Help Black travel into the distressing and tortuous depths of his own mind, by facing the truth and answering two very simple questions: ‘Why was he there?’ and, ‘Who was the girl?
Still very ambiguous at the moment, Get Even is set to launch sometime spring 2017 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
It’s always tough to render any type of opinion on the quality of a horror game until it’s in your hands. That being said, while the trailer looks great, and is genuinely unnerving, I have a deep feeling in my metatarsals Get Even will be a decent game at the very best. Fingers crossed though.
