The Haunted: Hells Reach, the third-person action game that took home the $50,000 grand prize from Intel's Make Something Unreal Contest last year, will release for Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network in early 2012, thanks to publisher THQ.

Originally created as a mod for Epic Games' Unreal Engine 3, The Haunted will also release as a standalone game on Windows PCs for $19.99. The original Unreal Tournament 3 mod for The Haunted is still available to download for free here.

The multiplayer-focused game has you playing as one of four demon hunters, fighting off evil forces looking to invade the world across 30 stages. It features four distinct modes -- Survivla, Cooperative, Battle, and Demonizer.

The Haunted also has upgradeable weaponry (e.g. knife upgrading to a chainsaw), six secret weapons in each level, and level events, like meteor showers and lightning storms, designed to affect gameplay.
