The Path trailer is the first one showing the exact Kholat gameplay. We were informed that the footage is in fact a pre-alpha build and it doesn’t represent the quality of the finished game. The cavern shown in the video is one of many locations from the big, open world of Kholat with the music composed and performed by Arkadiusz Reikowski.
Kholat is a FPP storytelling/experience title, being developed by by independent studio IMGN.PRO, inspired by true events known as the “Dyatlov Pass Incident”. The game follows the path of a group of Russian students, that went for an expedition in the northern Ural Mountains. The team does not reach its goal and the entire crew dies in mysterious circumstances.
The rescue expedition is being sent. They find the tent, which is cut from the inside. Students bodies, incompletely dressed, are found within a radius of several hundred meters. Everything points to some kind of event, that caused sudden panic, which led to the tragic, chaotic escape. In most cases, death occurs as a result of chilling, but some bodies have other strange damage signs. As the player, you are thrown into the area where the tragedy occurred, years after the actual event, with a chance to discover the real course of the tragic events.
