DAYS OF SURVIVAL LEFT
Welcome to the Official page of Dead Zone: The Blair Hill Incident. Here Outabox Studios will share some declassified information about the game with you on a regular basis.
Dead Zone: The Blair Hill Incident is an adventure survival horror game that is in current development by Outabox Studios and scheduled for a late October 2023 release on PC, PlayStation and Xbox. The story will take place on a fictional secluded island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. The majority of the gameplay however will take place within a hidden Community Estate known as Blair Hill. It will be behind these gates where the player’s given character will have to endure some brutal and outright terrifying moments while uncovering the truth of what plagues the island. The game will embody some factors of an open world in order to enable exploration within the surrounding areas of Blair Hill which will be crucial to puzzle solving and obtaining items, objects and collectables. There will be instances where the player’s character/characters are forced into dark tunnels, narrow spaces, high towers, deep bodies of water, cold caves, haunted buildings, streets filled with undead hordes, locations with angry and unsettled mobs, unavoidable boss fights and so much more. The game will jump between third-and-first person view depending on the situation at hand. Outabox Studios plan to expand on the survival difficulty modes and unlockable postgame missions which might include new characters and monsters. An Undead quest where the player gets to experience the zombie life in a zombie to zombie setting is also in the mix.
Players will assume the roles of numerous characters throughout the Blair Hill Incident story line. These character roles will be split into three states: Stages/Levels/Moments which are set either before, during or after the Incident took place. Not only will these different states be used to give more insight to the player on where certain items, objects, clues, information or passwords may be located, but it will also give the player a better perception on how the story unfolds from different perspectives as the player pieces the story together. The player will have full control of each character’s choices as well as their actions which will ultimately impact the story line for another character. Who survives and doesn’t will be up to the player’s actions and skills. Outabox Studios are focused on giving the player an experience of a lifetime and intend to keep the gameplay within the story as dark, twisted, exciting, mysterious, fear-filled and enjoyable as possible at all times.
