A Quiet Place: The Road Ahead Story Trailer Shows Off Highlights of High-Profile Gameplay


Saber Interactive and developer Stormind have released a fresh trailer (via IGN) for A Quiet Place: The Road Ahead, their horror game based on the popular film series. Check it out:

As seen in the trailer, there is a snippet of an incident from the first day of the alien monster invasion, which shows the relationship between the main character Alex, an asthmatic college student, and her boyfriend Martin. Then we jump to day 105, where Martin and Alex explore the devastated world, searching for something in the house that mysteriously still has power.

There are some nice touches here, like basic communication using hands and heads to guide each other, messages not to shout even in the “safe” room, and we see how opening doors works – you slam them shut, then you can slowly open them before letting go. Unfortunately, it seems the world has also been in the grips of a fictional shortage of WD40 and oil-based lubricants, and North America in a very real shortage of decent sex education, because every door hinge in the world is very creaky and Alex is very, very pregnant. That’s not good, because things involving children and having them are notoriously not silent.

Other things that aren’t clamorous? Cars, guns, and alarms. Oh my…

A Quiet Place: The Road Ahead is being developed by Stormind Games, who are best known for psychological horror games Remothered: Broken Porcelain and Tormented Fathers, as well as action RPG Batora: Lost Haven. It looks like a substantial step forward for the studio, but they’re leaning towards the right ideas and tropes that would work well in a video game, although the trailer clearly teased out some of the more action-packed moments that put the monsters of The Quiet Place in the frame. I would have expected the overall pacing to be much more deliberate and slower, though.

A Quiet Place: The Road Ahead is scheduled for release on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC later this year.
