Man of Medan
Cologne, Germany - August 21st, 2018 - BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe and Supermassive Games proudly announce a brand-new horror anthology series, The Dark Pictures, arriving in 2019.
The Dark Pictures Anthology is a series of stand-alone, horror games, designed to present a new, terrifying experience on a regular basis. Each game is unconnected and will feature a brand new story, setting, and new cast of characters.
A trailer for the first game in the anthology, The Dark Pictures - Man Of Medan, has also been released today.
In Man of Medan, four young Americans set sail on a holiday diving trip, with a rumored WWII wreck to find. As the day unfolds, and a storm rolls in, their trip soon changes into something much more sinister…Who will live? Who will die?
Players can take the role of each of the five protagonists, each with a different perspective, to explore and discover the mysteries of their terrifying situation – and make decisions that will change their lives forever.
Each game is designed to be re-playable, with branching storylines, paths, and numerous endings designed to keep players coming back time and again. Players’ decisions are vitally important for the survival of all characters…with any combination of them surviving, or dying, at any wrong turn!
“We are incredibly excited to announce the Dark Pictures Anthology and the first game in the series – Man of Medan. With each title being a stand-alone game we have the opportunity to create a unique horror experience every time, with new stories, settings, characters and cast. As a studio we have a passion to deliver powerful cinematic horror, and we can’t wait for players to experience these new games across PS4, XBOX and PC. We have a great partner in Bandai Namco Entertainment and we look forward to working with them to help bring these terrifying tales to gamers everywhere.” Pete Samuels, CEO at Supermassive Games and Executive Producer on The Dark Pictures.
“To finally be able to reveal this game is an exciting moment. We’ve been working with the amazing team at Supermassive Games to bring this vision together and we hope fans are excited as we’ve been to see the game for the first time at Gamescom”, said Hervé Hoerdt, VP Digital and Marketing EMEA. “We see this anthology series as an innovative new way to play games, positioning them closer to how people consume their favourite TV shows, creating a brand new terrifying experience on a regular basis.”
