Adr1ft could be the most terrifying game of the year

Space. There's just so much of it.  

Humanity has an interesting love-hate relationship with the big inky black. For as many stories in which we set out to explore it, there's a dozen more in which we get lost in it, fight over it or find something horrible in a corner of it.

Adr1ft is set to play upon those fears you last felt creeping up your spine while watching Gravity. An immersive first person experience (it's going to blow our minds with a VR headset), it tells the story of an astronaut discovering themselves in significant peril; awaking in space, floating amidst the wreckage of a space station, you've no idea what's happened and little clue as to how you're going to stay alive. There are no monsters, no guns - just an insanely realistic world around you and a slowly depleting oxygen tank.

Which, we're sure you'll agree, is a scenario guaranteed to generate wonderful warm feelings. Damn warm feelings. Mainly around the crotch.

Check out the stunning trailer below, and be sure to find out more about Adr1ft at next week's E3.
