Bandai Namco revealed today that The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope has finally received a new publishing date in October. The game was pushed back a short time ago due to COVID-19 after it sounded like we would eventually see it released sometime in the Summer. Now the new official date is October 30th, 2020, for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Which is rather fitting considering the nature of the game that it comes out a day before Halloween. The company also released a new trailer for the announcement which shows off a little bit more of the game. Enjoy!
In Little Hope, abandoned and all alone, four college students and their professors are trapped by a mysterious fog in the isolated eponym town. They search desperately for a means of escape while visions from the town's occult-steeped past haunt them from the shadows. In order to stay alive, they must uncover the mysteries behind these relentlessly-pursuing dark apparitions before evil forces drag each of their souls to hell! Players can take the role of each of the five protagonists of this brand-new cast, one of them being represented by actor Will Poulter (Midsommar, Black Mirror: Bandersnatch). Similar to the first game, Man of Medan, Little Hope is designed to be replayable with multiple storylines, paths, and endings. Each decision will matter and can have repercussions on who survives or meets their demise! The Curator, the omniscient figure voiced by actor Pip Torrens which overarches the series, will be back to witness the progress of players, giving them an occasional "hint" if they wish. The Shared Story mode and the Movie Night mode, enabling multiple players to share their story online or offline, will also return alongside the standard Theatrical Cut and the Curator's Cut. The latter will be available earlier as a pre-order bonus.
