Bandai Namco released a new video for the Supermassive Games developed narrative-driven adventure The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan, coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC-via Steam on August 30.
This new developer diary has the developers detail a new mode in the game called “Move Night Mode”. Taking feedback from their previous title, Until Dawn, they noticed that players would get together and choose a character to play through the entire game and they would switch the controller depending on which character is playable at the time. Movie Night Mode encourages this type of play and refining it a little bit.
When players choose this mode, they’ll be able to insert the number of players into the game and they’ll be able to choose a character and insert their name. Throughout the story, the game will tell you who’s turn is coming up and they’ll have to pass the controller. Players will also be rewarded at the end of key sections of the game to see who did the best in certain categories based on their choices.
During The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan, players will make decisions that they have to live with. Some of these choices can cause characters to die and thus altering the game’s narrative. This is similar to the developer’s previous title Until Dawn, which was a huge success in terms of story design and gameplay. The game follows the story of 5 stowaways who embarked on a journey in a stormy sea.
The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan will launch with Day 1 access to the “Curator’s Cut”, which players can pre-order today. However, the Curator’s Cut will be made available to players post-launch, but not until a later date.
