Watford, UK, November 24th, 2021: Global video games publishing label, Wired Productions and leading Italian studio, LKA, can today confirm their forthcoming and highly anticipated psychological thriller Martha Is Dead will launch across PC, PlayStation 4 & PlayStation 5 and the Xbox family of devices on Thursday 24th February, 2022, with pre-orders now available for the physical release.

Built in Unreal® Engine 4, Martha Is Dead combines real-world locations, working in links to historical events during the latter stages of World War II, superstition, folklore, and deep psychological distress. The game opens in the depths of the Italian countryside as Allied and Axis forces turn the nation into a pincered playground.

Martha Is Dead’s latest trailer teases Unreal’s revolutionary ‘Metahuman’ technology in an intimate and immersive showcase of the foreboding tension evident throughout the game. Meet the twins, Martha and Giulia, witness their special bond and get a glimpse of how dealing with the acute trauma of loss can affect a tortured mind.
