GN Version 5.0

The official Twitter account for the exploration-adventure game Kholat has sent out a not-so-subtle tease of a Switch release via Twitter. The tweet shared the above image and nothing more, which is clearly referencing a Switch release in the future. While we wait for concrete details on the Switch port, check out full details on the game below.

Narrated by one of the most popular British actors, Sean Bean, Kholat is an exploration adventure game with elements of horror, inspired by a true event known as the Dyatlov Pass incident – a mysterious death of nine Russian hikers, which led to countless, unconfirmed hypotheses. The player will plunge directly into the boundless scenery of the inhospitable Ural Mountains with the task to find out what really happened. In the course of events, you may come across more speculations than expected...

Will you find the answer?
Will you get any closer to the truth?
Will you survive?

Dyatlov Pass incident was a real story that happened in winter of 1959. Nine skilled alpinists went for a trip to the northern part of Ural Mountains, which ended fatally. Bodies of expedition's crew were found scattered on slope of Kholat Syakhl.

Russian investigators closed the case stating that "a compelling unknown force" had caused the deaths.
