With its summer launch right ahead, publisher Team17 has released the gameplay trailer for its upcoming title Killer Frequency. Killer Frequency is a new upcoming black comedy slasher-adventure and is slated for release on PC and Meta Quest 2 later this summer. Killer Frequency is set during the 1980s in a midwestern US town where a serial killer is on the loose. The new trailer features action-packed gameplay which shows us how you will save the lives of your listeners in this thriller.
In Killer Frequency, you play as Forrest Nash who is a washed-up DJ and presenter of the ‘The Scream’ late-night show. While doing his show, he is also listening to and helping out his callers who are being stalked by a mysterious masked murderer. As the night progresses, you will interact with different callers using several conversation options while listening closely for different clues. These clues will help you understand their positions and from there, you can help them out in different ways.
You will need to solve different puzzles around the studio which will ultimately allow you to save your listeners from their death while keeping your show going with different period-correct tunes. Death comes really easily in Killer Frequency however it all depends on you and your skills to solve puzzles, save the lives of your listeners, and keep your show going a the same time. As you solve different puzzles, if you succeed in doing it all, you will ultimately get to know the identity of the killer.
Key features of Killer Frequency include:
- Stay on air: Take control of the switchboard and explore an authentic 1980s radio studio as you guide the fates of your late-night listeners stalked by a mysterious killer
- Stop the slaughter: Take calls from potential victims while gathering clues, making decisions, and solving satisfying puzzles that could help each caller survive the night
- Unmask the killer: Interact with a variety of larger-than-life personalities including callers, potential suspects, and a charismatic producer while jamming to a jukebox of 1980s-inspired tunes
- All can live or die: Choose from a variety of conversation options to interact with callers – will you guide them to safety or broadcast their last moments live on air?
