Our videos of Fade to Silence

Fade to Silence has been available as an Early Access title for almost 3 months and we've been meaning to give the game some coverage ever since it came out. The problem is that it performed so badly on our GTX 1080 that we decided to wait a few patches. Alas, things haven't changed much as even our GTX 1080 Ti struggles to maintain a steady 60 fps framerate, which wouldn't be an issue if it didn't make fighting the evil creatures so cumbersome. The performance issues are not only to blame though, as the combat system is too slow and awkward for its own good in our opinion. The promise of a game mixing a Dark Souls approach to survival mechanics is quite appealing, but for now, it is not convincing enough for us to advise you to put your money down.

Fade to Silence first trailer, screens

We finally grabbed a good quality version of the trailer of Fade to Silence, the upcoming survival game from THQ Nordic and its studio Black Forest Games that was revealed during The Game Awards. The title, in development for PC and consoles, will hit Steam Early Access on December 14. The character-driven title is set in a post-apocalyptic world with an unceasing winter and asks you to withstand the environments, eldritch monsters, and your own madness.

    GriftGFX I want to see conquest. Grand operations is cool but I think it's a mistake to keep driving alternate modes as the "main" thing (7 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX Teams with effective squads will win rounds over teams of lone wolves every single game. And within your team.. it'll be good squads at the top of the boards. (1 Hour ago)

    GriftGFX Also: there's a difference between rewarding squad play and making lone wolf play unviable. (1 Hour ago)

    GriftGFX Well.. except 42. (1 Hour ago)

    GriftGFX @droezelke: They were playing without coms at a local event. That's not really surprising. Watch Xfactor's "squad up" BF4 videos w/ Jack, Matimio, and LevelCap. Every BF has squad play. (1 Hour ago)
