Few could expect that a horror based game would have a multiplayer mode but Bandai Namco and Supermassive Games have announced that The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan will have two different multiplayer modes for online and offline play. The online mode is called Shared Story Mode and will spread the story simultaneously with a friend in two-player online co-op. Both players explore the world, make choices and perform actions that affect the outcome of the story and the fate of their respective characters. Traverse scenes through a different perspective from the single-player experience sometimes together, sometimes apart in totally separate scenes revealing new information, locations and scares.
As for the offline mode, it is called Movie Night Mode and will feature a local group of up to five players using one controller with each player taking charge of the movement, decisions and choices of one of the five main characters. Players can choose between saving themselves, or trying to keep their friends’ characters alive. At the end of each playthrough, actions and impacts will be judged, with achievements & rewards for each player. A trailer introducing these multiplayer modes can be found below and as for the game itself, The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan is currently set to be released on August 30th for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
