Slender: The Arrival Trailer… Arrives.

It was only a few months ago that Blue Isle Studios was teasing their sequel/remake of Slender: The Eight Pages — arguably one of the most popular games on the internet at the moment — with detailed screencaps, showing that the tree-lined scenery from the first game would still be intact, but the bare-bones level design was completely changed.  It was also mentioned that the sequel would feature multiple levels and a story written by the creators of the Marble Hornets webseries that strongly inspired Slender’s aesthetic.

While the screencaps showed how much stronger the detailing would be in Slender: The Arrival, a trailer was just released today that showed just how vast the differences between The Eight Pages and The Arrival will be.  A number of different locations are shown throughout, including a cave, what looks to be a cement dam, the inside of a house, and — of course — the bowels of a forest.  Slenderman peeks in and out of cuts, and a character strongly resembling Masky pursues the player in a cement dungeon.

The game’s tentative release date is “Early 2013” for PC, with an unannounced date for a Mac release (though one is promised) and will cost “less than $20”, according to Slender: The Arrival’s FAQ.  Considering the obvious difference in quality between the first and second, as well as the stellar writing involvement of Joseph DeLage, Troy Wagner and Tim Sutton from Marble Hornets, I would say this game will be well worth it.
