Until Dawn developer Supermassive Games has revealed that Man of Medan, the first instalment in its Dark Pictures Anthology horror series, will be scaring up a storm on Xbox One, PS4, and PC on 30th August.
Based on everything we’ve seen so far, the Dark Pictures Anthology looks to build on the popcorn-munching cinematic thrills of Supermassive’s enormously enjoyable interactive slasher horror Until Dawn – particularly in regard to its choice-driven branching narrative – with each new entry set to dabble in a different sub-genre of horror.
For the Man of Medan specifically, though, Supermassive is swapping creaking cabins in endless moonlit forests for a great big boat and a whole lot of water. As previously revealed, it follows a group of divers as they set out in search of rumoured WW2 shipwreck while on holiday. As a storm rolls in, however, the crew finds itself trapped aboard a seemingly abandoned ship, and forced to confront the secrets it’s been harbouring all these years.
