Siren goes episodic

Siren: Blood Curse is coming to PlayStation Network in twelve "TV-style, suspense-packed downloadable episodes this summer," Sony has confirmed. Pricing, or a specific start date, has yet to be made available.

The official line on the story is: "The horror-survival title is set in the Japanese village of Hanuda, where a TV crew from America arrive to research the legend of the Vanished Village where human sacrifice is said to have taken place thirty years ago.

"Players discover the horrific curse that haunts Hanuda and battle to save the village's survivors from the living dead - a spine-tingling struggle that involves using the unique Sight-Jack system to view events from the angle of your undead pursuers. In a gaming first, Siren Blood Curse will be released episodically, keeping gamers on the edge of their seats until the next download arrives in PSN."

We've seenblood-curdling nurses and spook-tastic housewives. Hopefully we'll be seeing much more in the months to come.
