is a mystery survival horror set around a dark evil known as 'The Being' or 'The Soulrender'. Players must work together to gather a series of mysterious dolls and set the innocent souls within free, whilst attempting to survive the threat that lurks.
Players must work as a team to gather (and return) a collection of twisted dolls. As each doll is collected, The Being will become increasingly more difficult to escape in each encounter. This mysterious creature doesn’t just become faster – it’ll attempt to trap you and cut you off from the rest of the group.
Faceless has a mysterious and open-for-interpretation story in which four survivors, known as The Wakeland Survivors, attempt find Daniel North. One of the Wakeland Survivors; Edward North, is his brother. He and his friends have joined forces to search for him. After finding evidence of his whereabouts and what he's doing, they go off and attempt to complete his work in Wakeland City. Wakeland City has been closed off under the NHI Act, it is one of four locations in which The Being resides. Dolls are located within these places in Wakeland City: Wakeland Forest, Wakeland Town, Hyde Street Station and Bear Valley Hospital. The Wakeland Survivors must take all these dolls to the ritual zones in each area to ensure their own survival. Optional items can be found to hear clues about Daniel.
Whilst you can play in the Dolls
gamemodes alone, there will also be a single-player Prologue and Epilogue to accompany the story. With the prologue featuring Sam A. Mowry as Elijah Grey
, and the epilogue following Daniel North's last known memories. Due to Faceless originally being designed as a multiplayer only game, it does not feature a full single-player campaign.
A tense and terrifying soundtrack follows the players on their descent into insanity. From the main menu to each pick-up of a doll, the audio design has been built to create a nerve-wracking and unnatural vibe that will put players on edge.
