Supermassive Games, the developers behind the PS4-exclusive horror game Until Dawn is bringing in The Dark Pictures Anthology, a series of intense, standalone cinematic horror games.
Oh i can’t wait, Until Dawn is my favourite PS4 game, Supermassive are going Multiplatform is huge news, i’m excited for these new games to come from them
Until Dawn was such a great game and I seriously said not long ago I wish they would come back with another horror game, and my prayers have been answered. Watching the trailer, reminds me of the movie The Fog...and not the remake...not that anyone has ever seen the remake....or the original for that matter.
Loved Until Dawn, can't wait for this game!!!
gangsta, for those who grew up then, the original "fog" is a cult classic - i've got it on blu ray.
i love this studio.. Start The Party 1 was so much fun and technically on point, and they made a U turn with Until Dawn which also ended up being great! looking forward to this one.
Hahahahahahaha! You, good sir, get a gold star. I have unfortunately seen both.
Looks promising. I enjoyed Until Dawn. I'm glad they're brining this new game to Steam.
This literally, has made my day. I'm so happy for them and can't wait for the opportunity to sink my teeth into these experiences. Anything like Until Dawn is an instant win in my books (well - quality sustained of course).
This always feels good.. http://n4g.com/comments/red... Sounds like they own the IP so good for them. A little uncanny valley in there but looks intense. I wonder what engine they're using, if not Decima.
Definitely. Maybe this time they can get some more marketing for this next game. Until Dawn was criminally under martketed by Sony. I remember Sony pushed the Uncharted collection instead of Until Dawn at the time which I thought was a huge mistake. Hopefully Namco can do a better job.
What are you talking about? Until Dawn was not under market.
@Feels You sure about that? http://www.playstationlifes...
Gangsta Sony won that holiday season with uncharted collection bundle so business wise they didn't make the wrong call
@Showtime It was the wrong call when this was a brand new IP and a more unique game to market and push for the PS4. Sony could have done a great job pushing both the UC collection and Until Dawn and really put these guys to the forefront for these types of games. Business wise this was a sleeper hit and could have been a much bigger hit if marketed more.
@OB1 http://www.ign.com/articles... How about this one...or is this trolling clickbait journalism too?
“Until Dawn's success, however, wasn't a result of a major marketing push from Sony, as the PlayStation manufacturer didn't advertise the game very much at all. Yoshida explained the reason behind this decision, pointing to its focus on promoting third-party titles this holiday season.” You sir are correct. Yoshida himself said so
The game had decent marketing before the delays. i agree they could have done more at the time of its release though, but that's because I think it was something that people forgot about. I actually thought it released a while before it did on PS3 and was surprised when I saw it pop up again. Luckily, word of mouth helped push sales.
@OB1 “ "People have asked me why it wasn't marketed as much as other titles," Yoshida said. "It's a decision made by marketing departments in each region. Because of the focus on this Christmas time-frame, to really support the big third-party titles like Destiny and these titles, they didn't see the need to push Until Dawn that much from the platform marketing standpoint." how that’s clickbait i don’t know. especially when it comes from Yoshida himself stating it wasn’t marketed
I'd assume they're using Unreal Engine 4.
Awesome, looks similar to until dawn. Can't wair to play the game for halloween time!
Cool. Looking forward to this!
Looks like another fantastic experience.
Who cares if they go multi or exclusive. They're making a game like Until Dawn. And i loved that game.
Best news I've heard today so far.
i hope it will be good like until dawn. btw that's sad that the developer couldn't mention until dawn because he was on the xbox livestream ahah
I need to get my hands on Until Dawn.
Eh, wasn't a fan at all of Until Dawn so I'll likely skip this one.
Oh man this looks so good. Until Dawn was very well done so I'm excited for this game. I love the new setting.
That could be awesome. Keeping an eye on it.
Game looks great.
I find it a little troubling that Sony didn't jump on this for exclusivity with the success of Until Dawn as surely Supermassive with their close ties to Sony gave them first stab. It's ironic that with Demon's Souls, Sony didn't continue the relationship, so From went and made Dark Souls with Bandai Namco. Now the exact same thing is happening with The Dark Pictures Anthology
Bloodborne? They still make exclusives for Sony every once in a while.
They do, but they missed the boat on having the entire franchise from the start. I kinda feel they are making the same mistake here again, as clearly Supermassive are making some kind of interconnected yearly horror franchise that may indeed become 'massive'.
I don't think it's so much Sony didn't continue it as it is that it would cost way too much for them to continue it. From had a major hit on their hands that many games now are referred to as 'Souls' games. They knew they had something major on their hands and they knew keeping it to one console would greatly limit their profit potential. Sony couldn't afford to make it an exclusive affair and millions of gamers are thankful for that.
Yeah...no. Basically, it was that viper Shuhei Yoshida who is responsible you Sony missing out on the Souls game being exclusive. Shuhei Yoshida was so unimpressed by the game that he foolishly decided to only publish the game in Japan, which meant the western audience wouldn't get to experience demon souls. It was Bandai Namco who decided to take a leap and publish the game to the west. Demon souls gain a moderate amount of fans(all thanks to the youtube's soul's community) and with Bandai Namco on Fromsoft's side, Miyazaki decided to release his masterpiece Dark Souls. Miyazaki put his heart and soul(no pun intended) into Dark souls and created something that no game in the soulsbourne series was able to topple. You can most importantly thank the PC community for also making the souls series as big as it is and one that ushered Japanese developers to release more games on PC(minus Altus, who are still up in the skies). When Shuhei Yoshida realized his gargantuan mistake, he decided to mend the bonds with Fromsoft and ask Miyazaki to created a PS exclusive now known as Bloodborne. The issue with that was it stopped Miyazaki from taking a part in the development of Dark Souls 2 and only allowed himself a supervised role, which greatly impacted Darks souls 2's development and quality. One of the most important things about Bloodborne was its exclusivity and how it felt like a betrayal to the PC community, who were practically the people that made Dark souls such a success.
I’m hyped. I was just talking about how the broader genre of horror needs to be delved into. Episodic content, 1 or 2 a year like until dawn would be really cool imo. It’s got potential if it’s self sustained short stories.
Awesome than it's on PC. Until Dawn was good but the performance was poor
I sent them a tweet in 2015 and asked them to make another game like UD. I suggested they make a game about friends being trapped on a ship with ghosts and such... not saying they didn't already have it in mind but wow! if they listened i am blown away. https://twitter.com/sampson...
and i said they shouldn't do a 2nd until dawn but that they should do a new story https://twitter.com/sampson...
I'm so happy. After Until Dawn I really wanted more games of the sam style from SuperMassive, and have been losing my mind over the fact that Sony had basically turned them into a VR trash machine. Cannot wait for what they do with this new series.
Sony offered them money to make a VR game. no one forced them and thank god Sony is supporting VR because it's getting better with every game that comes out. by the next gen we will have a few masterpieces. right now it's hit and miss for these devs. don't knock it unless you've tried it.
There’s gameplay looks on YouTube
I kinda don't like the fact that they are planning to release two games in the anthology series every year, wish they would release it as a normal gaming series and release a title every 3-5 years.
