The Haunted: Hells Reach is THQ’s Unreal winner, out soon

The winner of Epic’s Make Something Unreal Contest, which tasked entrants with making their own game using the studio’s Unreal Engine 3, The Haunted, is heading for commercial release shortly.

The third-person shooter that we’re sure is missing an apostrophe is of the horror kind from developer ValuSoft. It boasts 30 levels, 20 different enemies (types, not total), upgradeable weapons, co-op and plenty more.

“The winners of the contest are an extremely talented group of individuals and we are thrilled to bring their first video game to the market,” publisher THQ’s Managing Director Maleea Barnett said of the game. “The Haunted: Hells Reach is a suspenseful thriller that delivers a rich blend of combat and action/adventure, set in eerily dark environments and is guaranteed to have horror enthusiasts and hardcore gamers at the edge of their seats throughout the entire nail-biting experience.”

The Haunted will hit PC in October for the sum of $19.99. It’s coming to PSN and XBLA too, but not until 2012.
