Bandai Namco has released a new update trailer for their Dark Pictures Anthology titles — Man of Medan and Little Hope. The newly released trailer showcases the two horror games in action, spouting their new updates.
As the trailer is relatively long (clocking in at two minutes long), viewers get a good look at what they should expect with this new update. First off both games will be making their way to the next generation of consoles — PS5 and Xbox Series X. This next generation crossover will be available for free for pre-existing users, meaning you would have had to purchase these titles on the previous generation consoles. The upgrade will take full advantage of the new generation’s software, so expect a better image, better frame rate, and much more.
Following the next-gen announcement, the two games will include a new and improved UI & updated gameplay mechanics. Bandai Namco has also added new difficulty settings and a new batch of QTE Warnings. If you felt like the original release of the game didn’t test your skill, well with this update you can really put them to the test. And vice versa, with the new QTE warnings, players will get a heads up for these quick-time events to help keep them engaged with the story. The developers really took their time with this update and it can be seen. They have also added new accessibility options for players to choose from.
Finally, Man of Medan will come with a new extended playable chapter with new deaths viable. This new update is now available to download and if you have yet to try either of these titles, now is the time to do so.
