Chasm is an RPG-adventure in which you play the role of a new recruit who’s sent to investigate why a nearby mining town has shut down. As you explore, you discover all sorts of supernatural creatures you need to battle to uncover the mystery of what’s happening with the town, and how you can save them. One distinctive feature of Chasm is that the world map is procedurally generated when you start up a new campaign. When you start up a campaign not everything is random, the game always has key upgrades and plot points in the same place.
There are some people who like the comfort of getting to know a single map by playing it over and over or being able to follow their favorite YouTuber’s walkthrough of the game. There is an option for that too. Everything randomly generated by the game engine is based off of a seed number. If you enter a specific seed number, you can guarantee a specific map. So if you want to follow a walkthrough, just check their seed number and enter that when you set up your campaign.
Chasm is officially launching on July 31st on PS4 and PS Vita! The price will be $19.99.
