Horror Adventure ‘The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan’ Reveals Two Multiplayer Modes Both Online and Offline
Bandai Namco released new information 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.
The publisher revealed that the game will have two online and offline modes for players to experience mystery horror with friends and be scared together, how touching. In “Shared Story Mode”, players will explore the world and share the story simultaneously with a friend in online co-op. Both players will be able to make choices that will affect the other’s game. Sometimes players will be together and other times they’ll be a part of this experience.
Additionally, there is a “Movie Night Mode” where players can play locally in a group of up to five players with one controller. Each player will take charge of the choices in the game for a time and can choose between keeping their friend’s character alive or saving themselves. At the end of the game, rewards will be given depending on the choices that players make.
During the game, 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.
