IMGN.PRO is very excited to announce that Kholat is finally coming to PS4! The most terrifying journey of your life will have its PSN release on March 8th this year.

It was the event that took the lives of 9 Russian students, hiking the Ural Mountains, on the night of February 2nd 1959. The real cause of this tragedy is still unknown, with many hypothesis arising during the years.

A special interactive map, showing the course of events of this fatal trip, was prepared on this occasion.

And that’s not all – starting from 3:00 a. m. PST today – Kholat gets 57% discount on Steam for the 57th Dyatlov Pass Incident anniversary.

Created by IMGN.PRO and narrated by Sean Bean – Kholat is an exploration adventure game with elements of horror inspired by the event known as Dyatlov Pass Incident. The player will plunge directly into the boundless scenery of the inhospitable Ural Mountains with the task to find out what really happened.

Kholat has originally launched on PC on June 10th 2015 and is now coming to PS4 with the release date set for March 8th this year.
