For those of us waiting eagerly for news on Funcom’s intriguing project, The Park; the wait is over. The psychological horror experience set in The Secret World’s abandoned amusement park is now available for pre-order at the promotional price of $9.99, with a release date of October 27th – just in time for Halloween.
The first single-player game by Funcom since its award-winning adventure ‘Dreamfall: The Longest Journey’ was announced via an eerie video back in August, which teased the setting of the game but didn’t really highlight any story aspects of the game. Since then, a few more details regarding the story were released. “The Park puts you in the shoes of a mother whose son goes missing. When night falls and the lights go out, what follows is an intense story set against the backdrop of an amusement park where a dark and sinister secret is just waiting to be uncovered.” If that doesn’t sound spooky and mysterious to you, I don’t know what would.
You can pre-order The Park on Steam, GamersGate, and Green Man Gaming today for the promotional price of $9.99 USD. As a special treat for players of The Secret World, the purchase of The Park will give players several unique items that can be used in the MMO, including the Chipmunk Killer costume shown in the key art image for The Park.
Will you be pre-ordering this game full of balloons, cotton candy and fantastic rides? Or are you not a big fan of the “happy places” that amusements parks praise themselves to be?
