It’ll be possible to play it on PC, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, but a release date is still undisclosed. A PS4 version isn’t mentioned in the trailer, but the fine print mentions the system so it may be a mistake.
The Dark Pictures Anthology is ta series of narrative adventure games exploring horror themes and situations. Each game features its own independent story making it unnecessary to have played the other ones to enjoy whichever you choose. Another specific aspect that’s common to them all is the multiplayer modes which allow players to enjoy the consequences of others’ actions.
Devil in Me is described as the most sinister tale the series has offered so far with the direst situations for the main characters to deal with. This time around, it will all revolve around a group of filmmakers who usually work with documentaries. As they receive a mysterious invitation to a castle, they are soon met with bizarre circumstances.
The place they go to is a replica of the H.H. Holmes hotel, also known as the Murder Castle. Holmes is considered America’s first serial killer and used to lure his victims into the original hotel. Having every move of theirs watched, the group of protagonists will have to choose wisely in order to survive the twisted whims of a “game master”.
