Rebellion posts cryptic horror teaser, promises Feb. 14 reveal

Michael McWhertor is a journalist with more than 17 years of experience covering video games, technology, movies, TV, and entertainment.

The developer of Sniper Elite, NeverDead and Aliens Vs. Predator is teasing its next project in the form of a YouTube video with hints about an unannounced horror game coming to PC.

On its Facebook page, Rebellion Developments teases its new game, seemingly set during World War II, by writing, "Footsteps quicken in the fog. Although the lone gunman's pace is swift the growing echoes of shuffling never slacken. They come."

On YouTube, the Oxford, England-based developer reveals a bit more: "One man is utterly alone amidst the chaos of war. But there are worse things to fear than bombs and bullets here..." Promising a Feb. 14 reveal for "PC fans," Rebellion teases "what is in store for those brave enough to venture into the 'Totraum'."

The teaser video doesn't reveal too much, providing a sense of atmosphere and a hint of a John Carpenter-like soundtrack. A QR code at the end of the video leads to a newsletter subscription form decorated with a dripping Nazi Reichsadler with a pentagram in place of a swastika and the letters "NZA." If you enjoy video games that may feature Nazis and possibly even zombies, you may want to sign up for that newsletter.
