Announced Stray Souls, a psychological horror with souls-like fights from Poland

Polish studio Jukai Studio, formed by former members of Bloober Team, today announced Stray Souls, a psychological horror adventure with an immersive story, challenging puzzles and souls-like combat, based on Unreal Engine 5. The game is expected by the end of the year on old and new generation consoles, and below you can find the official information and the announcement trailer.

Enter a world of nightmares in this third-person action-horror, inspired by the classics of the genre. Battle terrifying creatures, solve shocking puzzles and unravel a horrible family secret to unravel the chilling truth behind your existence.

Unravel the secrets hidden in the haunted city of Aspen Falls, with gruesome enemy encounters, epic bosses, cunning puzzles, and a deep story where not everyone is what they seem. Step into the shoes of Daniel, a mediocre teenager whose life changes forever after inheriting a stranger's house and meeting a mysterious woman who has intimate knowledge of her family, home and her shocking connection to her past. The gameplay elements inspired by classic horror fights with a precision similar to that of souls, give a touch of freshness to the modern action-horror genre.

Next-Generation Horror

Experience terror like never before thanks to the combined power of Unreal Engine 5 and MetaHuman technology. Advanced facial animations capture a wide range of human emotions, creating a new level of photorealism! Dynamic lighting and weather bring Aspen Falls to life with eerie details, from the peeling wallpaper of grandma's house to the dense foggy forest and beyond!

A deep and engaging story

Welcome to Aspen Falls, a small town plagued by a sinister curse that devours everything in its path. After inheriting his grandmother's house on his 18th birthday, Daniel thinks he has won the lottery, but soon discovers that luck has nothing to do with it. Now he is at the center of a dark ritual that threatens his very existence and must embark on a terrifying journey to uncover the secrets of his past.
