Who doesn’t like to feel a little spine tingle, a hint of the chills, or maybe some goosebumps as we watch or listen to a ghastly story? Well, if you’re looking for these sensations and more, your wait will end soon as the next chapter of The Dark Pictures Anthology series, The Dark Pictures: Little Hope will be releasing in the Americas in summer 2020 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PCs via Steam.
In Little Hope, abandoned and all alone, four college students and their professor are trapped by a mysterious fog in the isolated eponym town. They search desperately for a means of escape while visions from the town’s occult-steeped past haunt them from the shadows. In order to stay alive, they must uncover the mysteries behind these relentlessly-pursuing dark apparitions before evil forces drag each of their souls to hell!
Players can take the role of each of the five protagonists of this brand-new cast, one of them being represented by actor Will Poulter (Midsommar, Black Mirror: Bandersnatch). Similar to the first game, Man of Medan, Little Hope is designed to be replayable with multiple storylines, paths, and endings. Each decision will matter and can have repercussions on who survives or meets their demise!
The Curator, the omniscient figure voiced by actor Pip Torrens which overarches the series, will be back to witness the progress of players, giving them an occasional “hint” if they wish. The Shared Story mode and the Movie Night mode, enabling multiple players to share their story online or offline, will also return alongside the standard Theatrical Cut and the Curator’s Cut. The latter will be available earlier as a pre-order bonus.
