Developed by Canadian company Blue Isle Studios, Slender: The Arrival offers an "incredibly dark and sinister atmosphere, a tense and mysterious plot, and one of the most shadowy and fearsome villains the video game world has ever seen."

Here's how Blue Isle sets up the story:

"Lauren is in search of her friend Kate, who has recently become increasingly obsessed with the folklore of Slender Man. Was Kate's disappearance the work of Slender Man? Use Kate's forgotten flashlight to explore abandoned houses, creepy mines, and dark forests to unravel the mystery--all the while being stalked by the menacing presence of Slender Man."

Blue Isle is also rolling out a special promotion for Xbox One and PS4 players. The game feature a hidden audio track that plays randomly as gamers explore the forest. Anyone who hears the track, records it, uploads it to YouTube, and sends the URL to contests@blueislestudios.com will have a chance to win prizes, including a Slender t-shirt.

Slender: The Arrival was developed alongside Eric "Victor Surge" Knudson, who created the fictional "Slender Man" character. Check out some screenshots in the gallery below.
