After suffering a slight delay, the next instalment in The Dark Pictures Anthology “Little Hope” will now arrive on 30 October 2020 for PS4, Xbox One and PC. Pete Samuels, series director at Supermassive Games shared the news on the PlayStation Blog. For those who don’t know, The Dark Pictures Anthology is a series of standalone cinematic horror games each with a unique cast and story. We reviewed last year’s Man of Medan and thought it was great, besides some of the terrible acting.
The Dark Pictures – Little Hope will follow in the past game’s footsteps and include multiple ways to die and multiple ways to play the game. Players can experience the game in a single-player mode, experience a two-player shared story mode or an up to 5-player couch co-op Movie Night mode. Which is, in my opinion, the best way to play the game.
Just like the past game, your decisions will either make or break the characters you meet along the way. While Man of Medan took place in a so-called haunted ship, Little Hope is a new story;

Trapped by a mysterious fog, they search desperately for a means of escape whilst terrifying visions from the past haunt them from the shadows. After bearing witness to the town’s gruesome past, and the terrible events of 17th Century Witch trials, hellish beings pursue them relentlessly. Trapped in Little Hope they try to figure out the motivation of these demonic apparitions before the evil forces at work drags each of their souls to hell!”[/perfectpullquote]
According to Pete Samuels, Little Hope draws influence from the likes of “The Witch” and “Blair Witch“. The game is brought to life thanks to the great new cast members including Will Poulter who plays Andrew.
