The Dark Pictures--Man Of Medan Follow-Up Little Hope Releases In Summer 2020
The Dark Pictures continues, starring Will Poulter.
The follow-up to The Dark Pictures - Man of Medan was first glanced after that game's credits, where we got out first teaser trailer for Little Hope. Now, we have a better idea of when this next episode will arrive, and it won't be as long a wait as it was for Man of Medan.
Little Hope will release in Summer 2020, effectively meaning that we can expect it sometime between June and August. Bandai Namco also debuted a new trailer, but don't expect new footage--it's mostly made up of streamer reactions to Man of Medan (and a celebration of actor Will Poulter's casting in Little Hope), with the release window announcement buried in the comments below the video.
Little Hope is set in the titular town, which is isolated and abandoned. Four college students, along with their professor, are trapped by an impenetrable fog, and have to escape the "nightmarish visions" that are pursuing them. It'll be up to the player, alone or with a partner in co-op, to search the town and discover what is happening, how it's connected to them, and--hopefully--how to escape.
Some screenshots have also been released, showing off the game's cast (and again celebrating the casting of Will Poulter).
In a press release, Pete Samuels, CEO of developer Supermassive Games, said that the studio was "Delighted by the reaction from players and the success of Man of Medan." He went on to say that they "really appreciate feedback from the community and the team remains committed to the goal of making each new instalment deliver further thrilling horror experiences."
Man of Medan was, itself, a follow-up on Until Dawn, which became something of a PlayStation cult hit. Although Man of Medan wasn't received as well in GameSpot's review, the online multiplayer aspect of the game earned a lot of praise: "It feels like you're working together to wring as many interesting outcomes as you can out of the game, and effectively doubling the number of potential choices leads to a much stronger sense of variety."
