The next installment of Supermassive Games’ The Dark Pictures Anthology is coming just in time for this year’s Halloween. Called Little Hope, it’s set to tell a spooky tale about a village with a sinister past. The game launches Oct. 30 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
Although well-timed with this year’s supernatural holiday, The Dark Pictures: Little Hope’s release date is actually a delayed one. The game was originally supposed to launch this summer, but complications as a result of COVID-19 stay-at-home measures left the team at Supermassive no choice but to delay.
Little Hope’s story follows a group of college students and their professor who become stranded in the titular fictional town after their bus crashes. Unluckily for them, Little Hope has quite the history of witch-hunting during the 17th century and there are lingering supernatural forces intent on all sorts of sinister acts.
As the group explores the town, they witness the execution of a group of settlers from the past who look exactly like them. The group must find out their connections with this group of settlers, piece together the history of the town, and discover “the root of the evil.”
Little Hope features a single player mode, as well as co-operative play that allows two to share its story online or up to five players to experience a couch-friendly movie night mode.
