U55, First-Person PC Horror Game Set in German Subway

Are you ready to experience the horror you’ve never had before in a pc game? U55 End of the Line, another first-person game brings you the thrill.

The game seems to afflict Kirk and it is set in a German Subway line. Here, you’re playing as a kid trapped in the dark who only has a mobile phone to use as light to get around. It’s based on the works of HP Lovecraft, Dead Space, Silent Hill and Amnesia so imagine how frightening it will be once you play this one.

According to Kotaku U55 is hoping to include full Oculus Rift support. That would be great if ever this game could have it.

But what’s also good at playing this game is, you also get a tour from Berlin. Hats off to the developers who created it as it will take you to the city. Modern-day Berlin hasn’t been featured in a lot of games so this is definitely something to look forward. It’s like getting a virtual tour on the place.

The game combines the good location of the city, a vast metropolis with unique underground architecture. Although the setting is on the subway, it’s not a clone of Fallout, Stalker or Metro as you end up getting stranded, not having any of those heavy-artillery weapons, only being alone in the cold dark and some entities you don’t want to see and a smart phone as the only source of light (take note that these things run out of battery power so be cautious!)

PlayStation 3 will again thrill the gaming geeks out there as the company gets another crack of freebie from Namco Bandai.

Just like Tekken Revolution, Mobile Suit Gundam: Battle Operation, Ridge Racer: Driftopia and Ace Combat: Infinity, SoulCalibur is Namco Bandai’s newest attempt at free-to-play. The first F2P Soulcalibur will be released exclusively over PlayStation.

Let’s hope that this game will do wonders and have a good reception towards the critics and gamers as reports say that it has no multiplayer option, not-so-good news for those who want to play with their friends. The already released Tekken Revolution had mixed reactions from gamers and while Gundam are aimed at Japanese market, SoulCalibur, on the latest update, will be coming to Europe with Siegfried and Mitsurugi as two of the confirmed playable characters. Hopefully it comes to North America too.

Aside from SoulCalibur, Namco Bandai has also announced Ridge Racer Driftopia’s PC version which is now available on Steam Early Access. Its beta version has been closed last month.
