Supermassive Games may have had to delay The Dark Pictures: Little Hope by a few months, but that may work out to its benefit. Now, the second installment in the Until Dawn developer's new horror anthology series is coming out right at the spookiest time of the year, launching on October 30 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Along with the day-before-Halloween release date, Little Hope just got a new trailer. Last summer's Man of Medan, the first in Supermassive's anthology, was by no means a relaxing sailing trip on the SS Ourang Medan, but this new trailer promises that The Dark Pictures "takes a darker turn" with Little Hope.
There's creepy fog, spectral pilgrims, and other terrifying sights to be seen in the trailer, but no looks at Little Hope's gameplay mechanics. It seems safe to assume it'll feature investigation, conversation, and quick-time-event action in a very similar fashion to Man of Medan, and the various playthrough options are much the same: there's a single player Theatrical Cut, a two-player Shared Story experience, and a Movie Night version that supports up to five players.
Like Man of Medan, Little Hope will also include an altered Curator's Cut. People who pre-order the game ahead of release will receive the Curator's Cut a bit early, but Supermassive and publisher Bandai Namco confirm that it'll still be free to all players "around three months" after Little Hope is released.
For more on The Dark Pictures, be sure to go back and read USgamer's review of Man of Medan. Remember, last year Supermassive said it is already working on the fifth installment of the anthology, so if you want to hop on at the start of what's shaping up to be a lengthy horror series, now's your chance.
