Hell is Us

Hell is Us is an action-adventure game from Rogue Factor. Here’s everything we know about the upcoming title.

Hell is Us has been described as an action-adventure Souls-like game set inside a country in the midst of a civil war. Players in the game will control a currently unnamed protagonist who will battle creatures that have appeared following a mysterious event known as “the Calamity.”

While the announcement trailer didn’t show off any gameplay, we did get a sense of the game’s tone and style. Here’s what we know about Hell is Us so far.

The Hell is Us trailer is slightly reminiscent of Death Stranding.

Gameplay and setting

The protagonist’s monologue in the trailer reveals she has overcome a range of emotions such as fear and anger. She now simply craves “the ecstasy of revenge.” The character can then be seen coldly executing someone we assume has harmed those she loves.

We then see the character using a drone to survey a mass grave of strange humanoid creatures, before venturing toward it with a cool-looking sword. These could be the creatures we’ll be fighting that the devs were referring to.

As the game has been described as an action adventure, and a sword and gun have been shown in the trailer, we think Hell is Us will feature hack-and-slash and shooting mechanics.

We also believe the game will play in the third person due to the way the camera pans behind the protagonist at the end of the trailer. So far, Hell is Us has a very Death Stranding meets Dark Souls vibe, so we look forward to seeing more.
