To say horror fans are eating in the latter half of this year would be an understatement. With Signalis, the Resident Evil Village DLC Shadows of Rose, The Chant, and The Callisto Protocol already to look forward to, you can now add The Dark Pictures Anthology: The Devil in Me to the list. That is if it turns out better than The Quarry, of course. A new story trailer has been released for the game, which confirms it'll be out in the autumn for PS5 and PS4.
The setting this time around is a hotel, which as suggested by the footage above, is packed full of secret rooms and contraptions. The setup to go with the location is as follows: "The Lonnit Entertainment TV crew receive a pressing and mysterious phone call from a man called Granthem Du’Met, with a promise of a tour around a faithful recreation of the H. H. Holmes murder castle, an idea that Lonnit Entertainment founder Charlie Lonnit believes might just save his show."
With Oscar-nominated actress Jessie Buckley (The Lost Daughter, Men) playing the lead role, she's joined by a group of friends who slowly begin to discover they're being watched inside the hotel and even manipulated into doing things and going to certain places — we're sure the trap doors and moving walls have a part to play in that.
Again: that's The Devil in Me out before the end of 2022. Are you interested? Let us know in the comments below.
Didn't like any of the Dark Pictures Anthology games are all lame and not scary at all. A child could come up with a better story.
Didn't bother with The Quarry as seems this developer is happy releasing rubbish. Shame as Until Dawn was very good.
Slightly concerning how quickly these guys churn games out. Wasn't the Quarry fairly well received though? Feel like I mostly heard good things about it (elsewhere, anyway).
After the amazing House of Ashes and the underrated (especially by PushSquare) The Quarry, I'm very excited for this.
I enjoy these games, house of ashes was quite fun, glad they are continuing but I get why people would be not too excited
Im still triggered by the sudden influx of photo-less profiles swooping into the The Quarry review to shout at anyone who dared not think it was anything less than a 9/10 game..so lemme just say this... hmmmmm I like the sound of this games setting
It was received well pretty much everywhere other than this site, so now of course Push Square will always refer to it as a disappointing game, despite the general reception.
Love The Dark Pictures Anthology and I am looking forward to completing the collection!
Man of Medan is probably the weakest out of all the games. Little Hope has been the spookiest and House of Ashes was just a fun monster romp. This will probably be the goriest. I bet this game will have way more dire consequences than any previous game, too - judging by the theme.
Now, from my understanding, Supermassive has decided that this is just the end of Season 1 of the Dark Pictures Anthology and has plans for a Season 2.
If true, I am hoping Season 2 ditches X1 and PS4 completely and uses UE5.
If the Matrix Experience tech demo is anything to go by, Season 2 could look INSANE and really up the ante on cinematic gaming experiences.
Although not super original, this story looks to be different from the other games which I appreciate. Until some Wendigo-like creature breaks through the wall all of a sudden.
I haven’t disliked a single game Supermassive Games have put out so far. Keep them coming as far as I’m concerned 😁
Might play this when it comes to psplus
@jFug exactly... the review for this site was so ridiculously out of place compared to every other review it wasn't funny.
I loved until dawn, and loved the quarry, but I have been pretty luke-warm on the Dark Pictures games.
Man of medan was okay but very underwhelming and little hope while a bit scarier was a train-wreck writing wise...
I haven't played house of ashes yet, but ive heard it's the best of the 3 that are out.
@torne I think you'll like House of Ashes. It definitely kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time.
As for their review, it was so low that the PS5 version of the game took a huge hit on Metacritic.
Focusing on man-made traps this time around instead of the usual monsters or the supernatural has sparked my interest.
I'm baffled at how popular these cheesy "watch a poorly acted animated movie and click a few dialogue options," things are. It speaks to a horror fetish in our species that transcends standards.
To pay more than a movie rental price for one of these is just beyond me
To each their own I suppose. To classify and review these as games though is pushing it.
Imo I reckon these type of games will only really take off once different players are able to play as a character.
have these games on steam to love playing them round Halloween. great story's best played in the dark il have this snapped up soon as!
Thank you guys
@Geezer in the words of apple your playing it wrong 😂🤣
have a good one 👍
There is something about creepy hotel horror that I love...but this one feels weak!
Feels like they're releasing this game in parts & charging full price for each part (they get a hefty sale pretty quickly though)
@Grimwood Been a while since I last fired up Until Dawn,(have Man of Medan & Little Hope on my backlog,will likely look at House of Ashes if/when it hits 50%off on a psn sale),bit agree the quick time events used there,(& Quantic Dreams with Heavy Rain,Detroit etc.),could throw up extra scenarios.
Eg: Mike taking a few missteps affecting Jessica in Until Dawn,or Emily in her escape from down below etc. Hadn't gotten The Quarry yet,so that's disappointing to hear if that sort of random element has been removed,but guess I'll pick it up when the bills allow for it.
Looking forward to it. Keep 'em coming Supermassive, keep' em coming.
I look forward to picking this up in a $20 sale by Summer 2023. In no hurry to play, backlog is still immense.
I thought PS nailed their review. There wasn’t enough user input in The Quarry to make the game fun. We played through it once and couldn’t bring ourselves to do it again. For a $70 game it definitely was not worth it in my opinion; it felt very much like a budget release. Until Dawn is still far and away their best game.
@BritneyfR_ee I believe you haven't played Bravo Team then?
@Would_you_kindly Full price? Dark Pictures are all priced approx £33 at launch. Shorter games for lower price. I think that's more than fair.
