The official description reads, “At an abandoned farm, scarecrows have risen from the crust of the earth to hunt you and seek revenge. They’ll harvest your screams.”

Where the house took place primarily inside the farmhouse and barn, the zone will take you into the fields. A large barn has also been constructed in the zone.
