Until Dawn Developers Announce New Horror Games Anthology Dark Pictures

Until Dawn Developers Announce New Horror Games Anthology Dark Pictures

Who is the Man of Medan?

Supermassive Games, the developers behind the PlayStation 4-exclusive horror game Until Dawn, announced today a series of individual horror games styled after a Black Mirror-like anthology series called Dark Pictures. The first game is called "Man of Medan" and is slated for release in 2019 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Publisher Bandai Namco released the new Man of Medan trailer and like Until Dawn, it looks very much like a horror movie, only you can play it. The story appears to follow four treasure hunters who explore a sunken ship which is obviously haunted. Bad things ensue.

Until Dawn let players make decisions and take part in quick-time events to determine how the story progresses, and it's presumably the same for the Man of Medan. There's no word on how many "episodes" are included in The Dark Pictures Anthology, but it's good to see Supermassive return to the Until Dawn format after developing two middling VR games.
