Midways Horror TitleMidway Games Inc. has announced a new survival horror game, one due out for the PlayStation 2, Xbox and GameCube this fall. The Suffering will be set in a maximum-security prison, offering up third-person perspective, action-adventure-themed game play. The game’s central character, Torque, is an inmate who is next in line for execution when apparitions invade the prison and free him. Armed with more than 10 weapons—and the ability to transform into a “monstrous alter-ego”—Torque will battle a dozen types of enemy creatures as he bids to delve into his past and unlock the “deadly secrets of The Suffering.” Three different endings will be included, with a player’s path through the game deciding which one they ultimately end up at. The title also seems to be headed towards a Mature rating, with “dripping, pooling and splattering” used as adjectives to describe The Suffering’s gore factor. Creature designer Stan Winston created artwork for some of the game’s characters. The Academy Award winner is also working with The 3DO Co. on The Four Horseman of the Apocalypse and is involved with another Midway project, Area 51.
