A new co-op horror game will be winging its way to the PC in early 2019. A teaser for The Blackout Club has been released by game developer Question Games, and it shows off the type of atmospheric visuals you would expect from a team that has members who previously worked on BioShock and Dishonored. Question Games was the company behind the 2015 innovative video game The Magic Circle.

A teaser clip of a future video game called The Blackout Club has been released (see below). The short announcement video shows off dramatic game footage that should attract gamers fond of the horror and survival genres. The Blackout Club will be a cooperative multiplayer game where players join together to form a club made up of teenage characters who have been suffering from unexplained blackouts. It will be possible to explore and document the game's sinister surroundings to try to discover what nightmarish secrets are lying beneath the little town.

The developer behind the game, Question Games, has a team of very experienced game-industry figures. One of the co-founders of the company, Jordan Thomas, was the creative director of BioShock 2 and designer Stephen Alexander was an effects artist on BioShock. The company also has a couple of employees who worked on the popular 2012 stealth game Dishonored. Both BioShock and Dishonored were highly praised for their gameplay, atmospheric settings and the immersive qualities the games offered. It is likely that The Blackout Club will offer similar gaming qualities.

However, gamers will have to be patient if they want to get their hands on the spooky game, as it is currently slated for a possible March 2019 release. It will be launched on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
