Fade to Silence is an upcoming character-driven survival game from Black Forest Games and THQ Nordic. It takes place in a frozen post-apocalyptic wasteland populated with some really nasty creatures.

As tormented protagonist Ash, you must find other survivors and establish a refuge against the world’s brutal conditions. The game adds harsh weather dynamics to a complex, character-driven, group survival experience.

Reinhard Pollice, Business and Product Development Director, THQ Nordic: We have long sought to expand the THQ Nordic portfolio with a survival game that truly elevates the genre. Fade to Silence recreates the many dynamics of a harsh winter climate, delivering a new level of intensity to the survival experience. During the Early Access phase, the intense story of Fade to Silence will unfold, finally revealing what is behind the corruption the hero is fighting.

Adrian Goersch, Managing Director, Black Forest Games: We are thrilled to not only be showing Fade to Silence to the public for the first time but to invite Steam players to play the game in Early Access beginning next week. We intend to bring Steam players consistent and meaningful content updates throughout development, layering on new areas, followers, missions, monsters, and increasingly complex social events – events that demand moral decision-making on the part of the player. The team at Black Forest Games believes the Steam community will bring invaluable feedback to the final Fade to Silence experience.

Fade to Silence will be released on Windows and will launch on Steam Early Access December 14th. Don’t forget your earmuffs.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
