Lucius E3 trailer reveals October release

Omen-inspired PC adventure Lucius will be with us just in time for Halowe’en. remind yourself why children are so frightening in the trailer through the break.

Lucius is the product of Finnish developer Shiver Games, and is expected on October 26. Publisher Lace Mamba is bringing the game to retail as well as digital channels.

The trailer below gives some clues as to the game’s plot. Lucius was born on June 6 1966, and grew up in a manor equipped for his every need, including “the family’s own butcher” which seems like a pretty convoluted way to get some cleavers into the mix. Anyway, it turns out he’s the devil’s son and has to off as many characters as possible for the journey to hell. The open-world gameplay requires players to keep their murder spree on the down low for as long as possible to get the best (worst?) ending.
