Today, Supermassive Games, the studio behind the horror adventure game Until Dawn, revealed new information on their upcoming project: The Dark Pictures – Man of Medan.
Previously announced as part of The Dark Pictures Anthology coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in 2019, Man of Medan takes place on an old ship lost at sea during a massive storm.
Players, along with several stowaways, are trapped on the ship. In order to save themselves and their companions, players will need to escape the evil that means to destroy them.
Along the way, the player will be kept company by the Curator, an observer of sorts, who seems to know a bit more about what’s going on. He can’t help outright, but if players pay attention, he might drop a hint from time to time.
The Curator will be a constant throughout the whole of The Dark Pictures Anthology. In fact, he’ll be the only recurring character. He’s also one of many characters played by a well known actor — in this case, Pip Torrens who appeared in The Crown and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Joining Torrens in the Man of Medan will be Shawn Ashmore (X-Men, Quantum Break). As you can see from the trailer above, the men lend not only their voices, but their likenesses to the characters they play.
A firm release date has not been set for The Dark Pictures – Man of Medan, but players can expect it on console and PC sometime next year. In the mean time, more information on the game — including a gallery — is available on the official site.
