The first game arrives next year.
Bandai Namco and Supermassive Games have announced their collaboration on a horror anthology, entitled The Dark Pictures, the first of which will be released sometime in 2019.
Developed by Supermassive Games, the studio responsible for horror hit Until Dawn, The Dark Pictures Anthology will be a series of games, each with individual stories and settings. The games are designed with a high focus on decision making, with a number of storylines and outcomes decided by the player.
A trailer has been revealed for the first game in the anthology, Man of Medan, following four friends on a diving trip, searching for the wreckage of an old wartime vessel. You’ll be able to choose the character you want to play, giving you a different perspective on the story and the decisions that will need to be made.
â€œWith each title being a standalone game, we have the opportunity to create a unique horror experience every time, with new stories, settings, characters and cast. As a studio we have a passion to deliver powerful cinematic horror, and we canâ€™t wait for players to experience these new games across PS4, XBOX and PC. We have a great partner in Bandai Namco Entertainment and we look forward to working with them to help bring these terrifying tales to gamers everywhereâ€, said Pete Samuels -CEO Supermassive Games and Executive Producer of The Dark Pictures.
Man of Medan, the first of The Dark Pictures Anthology, will release on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in 2019.
