Following a significant delay which pushed it beyond a summer launch, The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope has now been dated for 30th October 2020 on PlayStation 4. This follow-up to Man of Medan is the second title in the Bandai Namco-published series and will follow the events of an isolated town trapped in amongst a mysterious fog. The Movie Night and Shared Play modes will return with this sequel.
On the PlayStation Blog, series director and executive producer Pete Samuels says that Little Hope is inspired by classic horror movies such as Blair Witch, Hellraiser, and The Witch. "After bearing witness to the town’s gruesome past, and the terrible events of 17th Century Witch trials, hellish beings pursue them relentlessly. Trapped in Little Hope they try to figure out the motivation of these demonic apparitions before the evil forces at work drags each of their souls to hell!"
Little Hope will also feature some gameplay improvements after Supermassive Games took feedback from Man of Medan into account. Alerts can now be utilised when you're about to trigger a quick-time event, context-sensitive icons are now used for interacting with objects, and a floating camera allows you to control the action at all times. These sound like welcome enhancements which will hopefully make for a better game -- Little Hope at least has a much more interesting premise than last year's Man of Medan.
Are you looking forward to getting spooked this Halloween? Don't scare us in the comments below.
I really liked Man of Medan - despite some technical and mechanic issues. I am glad Supermassive is listening to feedback and implementing fixes for the next game.
Can't wait to see how it turns out!
This looks like a lot of fun. Good time for the release date too.
"inspired by classic horror movies such as Blair Witch, Hellraiser, and The Witch"
That's just a random collection of horror films with barely anything in common other than the genre itself.
Anyway, I enjoyed Until Dawn but thought Man of Medan was terrible, so fingers crossed they've turned it around again.
little hope has a more appealing premise to me.
might get this one.
I hope this one is actually scary. I didn't mind Man of Medan but man it was filled with predicable jump scares.
I like Supermassive, I'd love to see more of them on PS5. Shame Until Dawn can't get a sequel due to the story. But it is my favourite PS4 game.
Looking forward to this despite finding Man Of Medan very dissapointing.I just want an Until Dawn 2..the first was a masterpiece.
Exactly you couldn't have a more random group of you tried!
Really don't suit being together
Loved Until Dawn, but never tried Man of Medan based on the lukewarm reception. Hope they improve with this one.
@Kirbyboy92 does seem a bit ominous for a series that possibly needs this to be a hit
Ended up picking up Man of Medan on sale a month or two back, (finally 1/2 price so worth a risk). But really miss seeing a game of the production values & story of Until Dawn. Makes me wonder what future Quantic Dream stuff will be like going multiformat & away from the sony release it when its ready approach & if they'll face similar issues.
Looking forward to this. I liked Man of Medan but it was no Until Dawn.
Nice release date, though I'll prob wait until Halloween 2021 to swipe this up.
