Developer Cosmic Forces has just announced Goosebumps: Dead of Night, a first-person action and adventure title that is set to release for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam this summer. The game will be published through a joint effort between Sony Pictures and Scholastic.

Based on the very popular children-horror series from author R.L. Stine, Goosebumps: Dead of Night’s plot will revolve around the player's quest to search for finding the lost and stolen pages of specific Goosebumps stories. These pages have caused whatever was written on them to come to life, so it's basically an anthology of some of the most iconic monsters and terrors from the Goosebumps series. Along with the announcement, a trailer showcasing some gameplay snippets has also been unveiled, giving us a sneak peek of what horrors from our childhood we should expect such as the Graveyard Ghoul, Lawn Gnomes, Murder the Clown, Annihilator 3000, and the Werewolf of Fever Swamp. The game’s main villain will be Slappy the Dummy, who stole the pages and has unleashed the horrors from R.L. Stine’s mind to hunt players down. A brief summary from the Goosebumps: Dead of Night website can be read on the game’s Steam page.

The Goosebumps series, which started off in 1992 with its first novel, has since birthed multiple series of books, a TV show, a spin-off novel series, and more. Most recently, a VR game was released for mobile devices titled Goosebumps Night of Scares and a full theatrical release came in the form of 2015's Goosebumps and Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween, released in 2018, with actor and comedian Jack Black assuming the role of the books’ author.

Goosebumps: Dead of Night will launch for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam in the Summer of 2020.
