Best announcement of Gamescom 2018 so far? It’s certainly up there: Until Dawn developer Supermassive Games has announced that it’s partnering with Bandai Namco on a new episodic series named The Dark Pictures Anthology. Essentially a series of horror-themed short stories, the season will get underway with Man of Medan – a kind of nautical spook-fest, as a group of unscrupulous teens go in search of a World War II wreckage.
As you’d expect from this type of game, narrative decisions will determine who lives or dies over the course of the campaign, and it'll be deeply replayable as a result. We absolutely love this idea, and it’s so great to see the Guildford developer return to what it’s good at it. The first story's due out next year.
