Until Dawn Developer Reveals New Trailer For The Dark Pictures: Little Hope
Little Hope is the next game in the standalone Dark Pictures Anthology series, following the release of Man of Medan in 2019.
When The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan was released back in August 2019, the game ended with a teaser trailer for The Dark Pictures: Little Hope--the next standalone chapter in Supermassive Games' horror anthology series. The studio has now shared a new trailer for the upcoming game that's set to launch sometime this summer on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Little Hope is set in a quaint American town of the same name. As is the case with most horror stories, the town has a dark and ominous past, which in this instance is based on the Salem witch trials of 17th century America. The game seems to predominantly take place in a modern-day setting with another cast of young adults you'll be trying to keep alive. There are clearly scenes set in 1692, though, so it will be interesting to see if you have any agency in these moments. The trailer (which you can see below) certainly makes it seem as though your decisions in the past will have repercussions in the future.
Man of Medan and Little Hope are the first two games in a planned series of branching horror games from the Until Dawn developer. "Each game in the series will feature a brand new story, setting, and characters," Pete Samuels, CEO and Executive Producer at Supermassive Games, said in a blog post. "The Anthology format gives us the opportunity to tap into a variety of horror sub-genres. We've identified 39 that we'd love to represent in the Anthology, but that would take some time!"
The previous title in the series was awarded 6/10 in GameSpot's Man of Medan review, with James O'Conner saying, "If you can organize a session with someone else who owns the game and play through the whole thing together, it's an excellent experience; but if you're after another single-player horror narrative experience like the one offered in Until Dawn, it's very disappointing. As a show of the potential for the Dark Pictures Anthology, Man of Medan is largely a success, but as a first episode, it leaves plenty to be desired."
