Though previously available digitally – on PC, PS4 and Xbox One – the Switch version of horror title Kholat is receiving a limited edition physical release in the first quarter of 2021, courtesy of Red Art Games.

An exploration game based on a true event known as the Dyatlov Pass incident, Kholat is a horror title narrated by none other than walking movie spoiler Sean Bean – and sees the player investigating the unexplained deaths of nine hikers in the inhospitable Ural Mountains.


It’s hugely atmospheric and tense, with a non-linear open world that’s navigated using an in-game map and compass.


Pre-orders are now available at this link – please be aware that there are set to be just 3800 copies available of the physical edition, so if you’re interested in picking up a copy of the Unreal Engine 4-powered scares of Kholat for yourself, make sure to secure yours before they sell out. You can also check out the trailer below.
