Hey, Xbox fans!
It’s great to speak to you all on this big day for us here at Supermassive Games. Along with our publishing partner Bandai Namco, we’re excited to announce that not only is Man of Medan releasing on August 30 and available for pre-order now, but you’ll also be able to play every game in the series in multiplayer!
Man of Medan is the first game in The Dark Pictures Anthology, a series of intense, stand-alone cinematic horror games influenced by real-world legends and events. Each game features a brand-new story, setting and characters, as well as a fully branching narrative. In fact, Man of Medan has more branching than any of our previous games and is designed to be replayed.
Taking place in the South Pacific, five friends set sail on a holiday diving trip with a rumoured World War II shipwreck to find, and plenty of on-deck partying to be had, our group gets ready for what should be the dive trip of a lifetime. As the day unfolds, and a storm rolls in, their trip soon changes into something much more sinister and terrifying.
We’re excited to talk about our two multiplayer modes for The Dark Pictures Anthology – Shared Story mode and Movie Night mode. In Shared Story you’ll play online with a friend, experiencing the story together and making choices that impact both of you. In Movie Night mode you and up to four other friends can play the story together on the couch, each controlling a different character. We think both modes will bring something different to the genre and hope you enjoy sharing your horror experience with others!
Want to find out more? Pre-order Man of Medan on Xbox One and you’ll receive early access to the Curator’s Cut. This mode, available once you have completed the game, features scenes playable from the other characters’ perspective, with brand-new choices and decisions to make. You’ll be replaying the whole story from different viewpoints and influencing the outcomes in different ways.
Whether you want to play solo, online with Shared Story, or couch-based Movie Night, we can’t wait for you to play Man of Medan when it releases on August 30.
Check out our website and social media for all the latest news on Man of Medan. We’ll see you in the South Pacific soon.
