I have no idea what to expect from Scorn after this new gameplay trailer, but it brings a lot of curiosity to look into it once it releases sometime in 2021.
Scorn is one of the upcoming Xbox Series X/S exclusives that was teased during an Inside Xbox back in May with a CGI trailer. The game was originally announced back in 2014 after being funded through Kickstarter for PC, but after numerous years of development, it will be a console exclusive for the next-generation of Xbox consoles while still coming to PC.

The CGI trailer that was shown months back was weird and ominous, to say the least, and the gameplay trailer released today holds up that impression. Seemingly as a first-person shooter Metroidvania, Scorn has you travel around in a grotesque environment filled with intestines and organs while running into skin covered creatures that are honestly a little difficult to describe.
It appears that most of your tools will be connected to your gun, where you can remove the front end to switch different weapon types. The trailer showed off a pistol, shotgun, and even a grenade launcher in use. There is also an attachment that works like a key that can cause gates to open or close.
Despite being in a horror setting there doesn’t seem to be any jump scares or tension that I personally experienced that most games of the genre are known for seemingly fitting more as an atmospheric horror than franchises like Resident Evil. It will be interesting to see how Scorn turns out once it releases next year.
Scorn is set to release sometime in 2021 on Xbox Series X, Series S, and PC. It will also be available on day one on Xbox Game Pass.
