Supermassive Games and Bandai Namco have only recently revealed their latest narrative-horror anthology series, The Dark Pictures – Man of Medan. Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming title from the team that brought you Until Dawn.
If you’re a fan of horror games, The Dark Pictures – Man of Medan from developer Supermassive Games and publisher Bandai Namco should be on your most anticipated games of 2019. There’s a good reason why: The team is giving you an inside look into the development of their upcoming title that’s set to release in 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
For fans of games like Until Dawn (also developed by Supermassive Games), this is definitely one that you’ll want to keep on your radar moving forward. In the very first Dev Diary for their upcoming title, Supermassive Games gives us an inside look behind their creative process, discussing how they formed their claustrophobic and foreboding atmospheres of the ship you’ll be adventuring through. Whether its the audio, the lighting or the architecture, Supermassive Games is plenty excited to show off their techniques used to create the games they do.
Along with this process, Supermassive Games also gives you an idea of just how unique their series of cinematic horror games will be liked by one common element (something you may recall from Until Dawn): Every character can live and every character can die throughout the story, creating nearly endless possibilities for how the game will end.
In this first diary, we are also introduced to the unique and talented cast of actors such as Shawn Ashmore (X-Men, Quantum Break) and Pip Torrens (The Crown, Star Wars: The Force Awakeness), who are brought to life in this life-like title.
Bandai Namco has revealed that The Dark Pictures – Man of Medan will be available in both retail and digital formats in 2019. Currently, the game has not yet been rated by the ESRB. Stay tuned as we’ll keep you updated as more information is released about the upcoming title.
The Dark Pictures – Man of Medan will be available in both physical retail and digital download versions; the title is currently pending a final rating with the ESRB.
