Just a few weeks ago, Blue Box Game Studios released the “teaser” for its highly controversial upcoming game, Abandoned, which made waves for the wrong reasons. If you didn’t know what transpired, the Abandoned game app on the PS5 got an update, which was supposed to be for this big reveal, and instead, all we got was old footage.
Today, Blue Box has released an FAQ, where it answered pertinent questions like why gamers had to download 5GB of data for five seconds of footage, and more! Oh, and the upcoming playable prologue teased has been confirmed to include Trophies!
Check out the full FAQ below.
