It’s become a bit of an inside-geek joke that Game of Thrones actor Sean Bean keeps dying over and over again in his various movie and TV roles. Can you guess that he’s dying here again? Well, that’s really not a spoiler if Bean’s narration reveals that his character is already dead when the game begins, right?

Sean Bean not only narrates the first atmospheric trailer for upcoming PC videogame Kholat, he’ll also provide the narration for the finished game as well. Players are tasked to find out what happened in the icy wastes of the Ural Mountains, and the game is loosely based on a real-life event, adding to the creep factor. Check out the trailer:

Narrated by one of the most popular british actors Sean Bean, Kholat is an exploration adventure game with elements of horror, inspired by true event known as Dyatlov Pass incident – mysterious death of nine Russian hikers, that led to countless, unconfirmed hypotheses. Player will dive directly into boundless scenery of inhospitable Ural Mountains, with task to find out what really happened. In the course of events you may approach even more question marks.

Dyatlov Pass incident was a real story that happened in winter of 1959. Nine skilled alpinists went for a trip to the northern part of Ural Mountains, which ended fatally. Bodies of expedition’s crew were found scattered on slope of Kholat Syakhl.

Russian investigators closed the case stating that ‘a compelling unknown force’ had caused the deaths.

Kholat is coming to Steam on June 9. Will this be a must-play for you?
