The Angel has a new friend. Question (indie studio with veterans of the Bioshock series, Disohonored, Eldritch and more) are pushing the first major update to The Blackout Club servers for 2019. The Stalker PvP update lets players invade co-op games on the opposing team, presenting as another teenager playing on the side of Redacre’s very own boogeyman. At first, players will be unaware of the intrusion as Stalkers come unannounced and uninvited, but for those with a keen eye they’ll notice a fellow player watching their every move, collecting info on their sinful activities, and reporting this all back to The Angel. The Stalker uses their phone to sneakily take photos of the cooperative players, bringing all sorts of trouble down on their targets. It is a desperate, adrenaline-charged process for both sides as the Stalker is always alone, against up to 4 cooperating players yet capable of wreaking havoc on any potentially successful mission.
- Enter games unannounced and uninvited. This can happen mid-mission, beginning or end
- Are weak but agile and capable of using the red doors of Redacre as shortcuts to spy on players
- Only appear in co-op games and won’t invade single player missions
- Invade mid-to-high-level games consisting of players who are experienced exploring Redacre
About The Blackout Club:
Your friend has gone missing. Something is amiss in Redacre and the adults aren’t listening. It’s up to you and your high school friends to figure it out. The Blackout Club is a 1-4 player horror co-op game all about working together and trying to unveil the dark secrets beneath the surface of Redacre.
The boogeyman known as Angel looks over Redacre. All-seeing as the adults report the sins of the youth trying to unveil the cultish activities happening in the town. Those committing the most faults are hunted by this entity, which is only visible when you close your eyes. Captured players have shared stories of hearing voices and waking up in their beds with signs of blackout activity, or “lost time.” Others report demonic messages written across their mind’s eye.
Are these lucid memories or just the excitement of playing getting to people’s heads?
The Blackout Club is available now in Early Access on Steam with plans to launch into 1.0 later this year on PC and Consoles.
