The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan
The Dark Pictures Anthology is a series of standalone cinematic horror games driven by three common threads: an unprecedented amount of branching gameplay that yields near-limitless re-playability; five controllable characters (per game) who can all live and die based on the players’ choices; and The Curator, an omnipresent narrator-like figure who seems to know just a little bit too much about Supermassive’s horrifying new universe.
The anthology’s maiden voyage, Man of Medan, is led by a talented cast of actors, including stars Shawn Ashmore (X-Men, Quantum Break) and Pip Torrens (The Crown, Star Wars: The Force Awakens), whose in-game likenesses are rendered in shockingly vivid detail. This chilling tale offers a frightening number of potential outcomes, daring players to carefully navigate the stormy seas ahead either alone or with friends via the game’s two multiplayer options:
Shared Story Mode
Two-player online co-op wherein players explore the world, perform actions and make choices that affect both the outcome of the story, and fate of their respective characters
Experience the narrative through unique perspectives—sometimes together, sometimes alone—in totally separate scenes that reveal new information, locations, and scares than the single-player mode
Movie Night Mode
Up to five players can team up offline by sharing one controller, each taking charge of the movement, decisions and choices of one unique character
Players can decide to either save themselves, or try to keep their friends’ characters alive
Each player’s actions will be judged, with in-game achievements & rewards distributed at the end of the playthrough
The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan has an ESRB rating of “M” for Mature.
