All 12 terrifying episodes of Siren Blood Curse™ scream their way in to stores this Autumn on Blu-ray Disc™

August 1st, London: Sony Computer Entertainment Europe announced that in Autumn 2008, the most terrifying and violent of the Siren games to date will be released on Blu-ray Disc™ (BD) for PLAYSTATION®3 (PS3™). Siren Blood Curse™ is the blood-curdling follow-up to Forbidden Siren™ and Forbidden Siren 2™ and has so far only been available to purchase as a download on PLAYSTATION®Network. This Autumn, all 12 gut-wrenching episodes of the Japanese Horror Game with exclusive bonus content will be available to purchase on high definition BD.

The chilling events surrounding Siren Blood Curse take place in the Japanese village of Hanuda, a dark, eerie place, frozen in the 1970s and surrounded by a red sea. A TV crew from America arrive to research and film an exposé on the so-called “Vanished Village” where human sacrifices are rumoured to have taken place. You, the visitors, discover an ancient curse has been cast upon the town and it is your quest to save the remaining inhabitants. You are being hunted down by the vicious Shibito (living dead) and other terrifying monsters, and if attacked you’ll be at risk of deforming in to one of these hideously deformed beasts yourself.

Throughout the game you’ll play each of the visitors to the village. The game’s unique Sight-Jack System enables you to switch seamlessly between the visions of the hunted (yourself) and the hunter. Meanwhile blood, guts and gore are super-enhanced by amazing graphic effects, an advanced physics engine and shockingly realistic facial animations.

The introduction of western characters to Siren Blood Curse brings a new dimension to a series inspired by films of the Japanese survival horror genre. Siren Blood Curse blurs the line between game and film, in a truly terrifying gaming experience.Get ready for a purely terrifying gaming experience when Siren Blood Curse™ screams its way in to stores this Autumn 2008 in PAL territories.
