It has been a while since the last Toxic Gamer’s Bulletin, so welcome to our first bulletin of the New Year. Let’s start.
Frictional Games Updates Website For Upcoming Project Announcement
Horror fans know well who are Frictional Games. Well they are the famous developers who brought us wonders of horror games like Penumbra with all its parts and the awesome and famous Amnesia The dark descent and its sequel, and last but not least, SOMA.
The studio had revealed a few years back that they were working on two titles at the same time. It seems now that one of them is getting set for a reveal.
The main website has been renewed, and not only that, it also has a new link to “Next Frictional Game”.
By looking at the new website which is called nextfrictionalgame.com, you can see a pulsing ball of something, set against a black background.
Also after playing with the page’s HTML code, nothing in it gives away anything. So whatever Frictional has in the works, they are doing an excellent job in keeping it secret.
SOMA was the last game developed by Frictional Games. It was released back in 2015 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

Well here starts the rumors, according to a reveal, mistakenly made by Gamestop, the game is called ‘Assassin’s Creed Ragnarok – Mjolnir Edition’, and it’s under Xbox One as a platform.
