Supermassive Games produced several well-received story-driven horror adventures, with Until Dawn, and VR titles, Until Dawn: Rush of Blood and The Inpatient. Well, they are back for more.
Supermassive Games revealed Man of Medan during E3 2019, and discussed more information regarding the title’s gameplay and setting. Recently, the studio detailed how the Movie Night and Shared Story co-op modes will work out. The Movie Night feature is definitely interesting, as it allows for up to five players to play on the same console, with each controlling a character and affecting each other’s choices.
Movie Night allows up to five people (you and up to four of your friends) can play couch co-op. Each player can enter their name and choose which character (or characters) to play, then simply pass the pad whenever that character is the focus of the game. You can explore, react, and make decisions to keep your character alive and stay in the game. When prompted, simply pass the controller onto the next player so that they can continue with their character. Periodically, the game will present a summary of how each player has played. We were so impressed by the innovative and collaborative ways people played Until Dawn together that we created this feature to help facilitate that way of playing.
Shared Story lets you play online with a friend, making choices that affect both of you. Each player will enjoy a great story when they each see different things and neither sees everything. We really hope you enjoy the intensity of experiencing the story with a friend, and that you are still friends after!
Man of Medan releases on August 30th for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
