Bandai Namco has announced that The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope will be arriving in time for Halloween, promising "tension and terror" when it releases this October, following a delay.

Featuring a single player mode, 2-player online Shared Story mode, and the "couch-friendly" local 5-player Movie Night mode, Little Hope will enable you to experience the narrative your way, much like Man of Medan did. Playing as four college students and their professor trapped by a mysterious fog, you'll need to escape a small town with a gruesome and sinister past.

Your survival will rely on uncovering Little Hope's various mysteries -- including the truth behind dark apparitions in the town -- before your souls are dragged to hell. The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope will be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on 30th October 2020, with a standard, Limited, and Collector's Edition to choose from, as well as a pre-order bonus, details of which can be found below.

The Collector’s Edition includes the Little Hope game, a Dark Pictures Cloth Map, two map pins, a Steelcase (with 4 slots) and a replica of Mary's 1692 poppet. This edition is exclusive to the BNEE E-commerce Store.

The Limited-Edition Bundle, only available at participating retailers, includes Little Hope & Man of Medan games, a Dark Pictures Cloth Map, two map pins and a Steelcase (with 4 slots) all at a special price.

Pre-Order Bonus: Early Access to The Curator's Cut (new scenes in addition to the theatrical cut, different playable characters with choices and outcomes).

I'm interested in these since I enjoyed Until Dawn so much, but with this one having a bundle that includes the first game in the anthology I wonder if it'll be worth it to wait longer and get then almost in one big bundle.

Hyped. Was hesitant on man of medan thinking it was going to be a dumb pirate game or something but it exceeded expectations.

I still need to play Man of Medan.

I LOVED Until Dawn however, and will be getting Little Hope (probably as a Christmas present).

I will be waiting until they are done making these anthology games and get them all when there is most certainly going to be a bundle that will include them all.

Man of Medan is fine for a rental, but it felt very much like a step down from Until Dawn. The new one might be marginally better, but I think trying to build a narrative game with multiplayer was going to weaken the experience.

The games being much shorter than Until Dawn means less character stuff and the plot rails even more obvious. Waiting for a bundle is the smartest choice if you absolutely have to have these games, but I couldn't tell someone they needed to make these part of their home library.
