Xbox Game Pass horror game Scorn has been played by more than two million gamers across Xbox Series X|S consoles and Windows PC. The announcement was made on the game’s official Twitter account, with the message “Our frozen hearts extend gratitude from the depths of despair.”

This comes right after the game was announced as headed to the PlayStation 5 sometime this fall after a year of Xbox exclusivity. See the PS5 reveal trailer below.

Scorn made a serious impression on the gaming industry last year with a truly unique (and truly terrifying) visual style. The game also has a unique play style, with first-person exploration and puzzle-solving. From the official description on the game’s Xbox Store page:

Scorn is an atmospheric first-person horror adventure game set in a nightmarish universe of odd forms and somber tapestry.

It is designed around the idea of “being thrown into the world”. Isolated and lost inside this dream-like world, you will explore different interconnected regions in a non-linear fashion. The unsettling environment is a character itself.

Every location contains its own theme (story), puzzles and characters that are integral in creating a cohesive world. Throughout the game you will open up new areas, acquire different skill sets, weapons, various items and try to comprehend the sights presented to you.”

A deluxe edition of Scorn is also coming for both Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5; it will feature a steelbook case, a digital artbook and the game’s OST.
