Supermassive Games is well-known thanks to their release of Until Dawn, a video game horror title that has a branching narrative journey for players to endure. However, instead of branching too far away from the realm of Until Dawn, developers Supermassive Games is finding themselves dwelling into the horror genre a little while longer. It was unveiled that the studio was working on a trilogy of games that would be incorporated in a series known as The Dark Pictures Anthology, during the Gamescom 2018 event.
This first title in the anthology would be Man of Medan, which follows another group of friends who take to the sea in order to uncover hidden treasure. However, the risk for reward is definitely high in this journey as players will find that the same style of gameplay is brought over from Until Dawn to this latest IP release. Just like in Until Dawn, players will be watching over a group of characters that could find an untimely death if they are not careful of their choices and actions.
In a recent interview between Tom Heaton, the game director for Man of Medan and Wccftech, it was unveiled just how long players will have to go through the game in order to wrap up the narrative. According to Tom Heaton, the average playtime for the game would be about four hours, but again, that could be longer or potentially shorter solely depending on the choices and actions taken by the player.
Currently, Man of Medan is not set to release until in 2019 for the PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One platforms.
