After a significant delay that pushed it past a summer launch, The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope is now dated October 30, 2020 on PlayStation 4. This sequel to Man of Medan is the second title in the released series. by Bandai Namco. and will follow the events of an isolated town trapped in a mysterious fog. Movie Night and Shared Play modes will return with this sequel.
On the PlayStation Blog, series director and executive producer Pete Samuels says that Little Hope is inspired by classic horror films such as Blair Witch, Hellraiser and The Witch. "After bearing witness to the town's horrific past and the terrible events of the XNUMXth century witch trials, hellish beings pursue them relentlessly. Trapped in Little Hope, they try to figure out the motivation behind these demonic apparitions before the evil forces at work are dragging each of their souls to hell!”
Little Hope will also feature gameplay improvements after Supermassive Games took feedback from Man of Medan. Alerts can now be used when you're about to trigger a quick event, pop-up icons are now used to interact with objects, and a floating camera lets you control the action at all times. These sounds feel like welcome improvements that will hopefully improve the game – at least Little Hope has a much more interesting premise than last year's Man of Medan.
