Trailer: The Dark Pictures Anthology haunts current-gen consoles

Bandai Namco’s horror collection is making its way to the Xbox Series X|S and PS5, with new features and a new chapter for Man of Medan.

The Man is back

Timed with these releases is a free game update that brings improved UI and gameplay, added difficulty settings and QTE warnings, wider accessibility, and more for players of the legacy versions of both titles on PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC via STEAM®. Additionally, MAN OF MEDAN will have a surprise in store for players with an extended chapter titled “Flooded” that introduces new gameplay and a shocking twist to the game’s ending. 

Bandai Namco press release

Both of the first two Dark Pictures titles should be out right now for the Xbox and PS5, complete with the improvements mentioned above. If you need a little refresher on ’em, they are:

  • MAN OF MEDAN, the first game in the anthology, brings supernatural horror to the South Pacific. Five friends set sail on a holiday diving trip with a rumored WWII wreck to discover. As the day unfolds and a storm rolls in, their trip soon changes into something much more sinister. Who will live? Who will die? It comes down to you. Can you save them all? 
  • In LITTLE HOPE, the second game, after their bus crashes in bad weather, four college students and their teacher become stranded in an isolated town miles from anywhere. Trapped by a mysterious fog in the town of Little Hope, they search desperately for a means of escape while visions of the past haunt them from the shadows. 

And while you’re playing through those, don’t forget that the third game in the set, The Devil in Me, is getting prepped for launch this November. So the horror doesn’t have to stop this fall, if you’re just getting into Bandai Namco’s saga of terror.
