phantom abyss, the Australian-made asynchronous first-person multiplayer game, sees you attempt to run, grapple and avoid a series of traps while navigating your way through procedural generation IndianaJonesstyle temples.
The twist is that you’re basically competing against several other people who have tried (and failed) to reach the end, watching what their ghosts are up to in order to get an idea of what not to do because you make split-second decisions.
The game is set to get more populated, with news that it’s coming to Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass service – as a game preview title – for Xbox Series X/S on October 20, 2022. This should provide a much-needed injection to its playerbase; the game first launched on Steam Early Access to overwhelming success in June 2021.

When Phantom Abyss launching on Xbox Game Pass, it will feature a few additional game modes that have been added since its initial debut, including a daily challenge map and a single-player focused mode with set difficulty escalation – closer to a classic roguelike experience.
The WIBY developer team will continue to develop Phantom Abyss on Steam Early Access and Xbox Game Preview. The game is published by Devolver Digital and made with help from Screen Queensland.
