Supermassive Games Announces Man of Medan Multiplayer Modes

Supermassive has repeatedly pointed out that it sees each Dark Pictures game being just that: a game sold as an individual product, unlike the likes of Telltale episodic games which have multiple entries loaded from a single shell program. Trying to survive gets a little more dicey when you co-op partner is making their own decisions behind your back.

Supermassive Games, developers behind Until Dawn and The Inpatient, have announced today that their upcoming horror game Man of Medan will include multiplayer modes. Check out the new multiplayer trailer below.

The second multiplayer feature is called Night Mode.

The first of the two modes, "Shared Story", will be played out online. You'll spend much of the game watching cut-scenes and making dialogue decisions, but there are moments of exploration where you'll have full control of your character and will be free to poke around its densely detailed environments.

As for Movie Night mode, groups of up to five players gather round one TV, with each player picking one particular character to make decisions for. Why watch a horror movie with your friends when you can be in one?

"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", explained Samuels. But be careful, as all the playable characters can live, and any and all of them can die, depending on the choices you make.

What's interesting about this is the way it goes about presenting multiplayer options for both local and online players. We tried the game at E3, and it was a cheesy, yet fun experience. Samuels said that this mode lends to how streamers and their viewers interacted on Until Dawn, and wanted to make it a more interactive experience with a shared audience. Sometimes players will be together and other times they'll be a part of this experience.

Man of Medan and the entire Dark Pictures Anthology will release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Sometimes it bleeds into real life; he forgets to sleep because he thinks he has a Witcher's body clock.
