Nacon has revealed developer Rogue Factor‘s Hell is Us, a new IP that comes from Jonathan Jacques-Belletête, formerly of Eidos Montreal and now serving as the creative director having previously worked on Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and more recently Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.
Hell is Us is described as third-person action adventure game in a semi-open world where you’ll play as a man out to discover his past while dealing with a country mired in a civil war. However, the country is rife with hidden secrets and supernatural forces have appeared in an event knows as “The Calamity.”
“Our goal with Hell is Us is to bring back true adventure and exploration,” said Jonathan Jacques-Belletête. “There’s no need for a detailed quest log or precise waypoint on the map: we want players to feel the thrill of adventure, guided by their feelings and instincts.”
The studio is currently at work building the game in Unreal Engine 5 and is set to launch in 2023.
