Man of Medan Scares with Announcement Trailer

The team behind Until Dawn returns for a new anthology series.

By Jay Gervais

The team that brought you 2015’s Until Dawn returns with another choose-your-own-adventure-style horror game titled Man of Medan. Supermassive Games, the developer behind the title, is hoping that their new game will pave the way to an immersive anthology of horror-themed games, or as they like to call it, “The Dark Pictures Anthology.” Have a look at the announcement trailer above.

After watching the trailer, we can see familiar elements that are reminiscent of Until Dawn, such as the cinematic style of the gameplay and the graphics, of course. Much like Until Dawn, Man of Medan allows players to create their own story based on the actions and decisions they make. Who will live and who will die? That’s really up to you as the player.

Pete Samuels, Managing Director of Supermassive Games, had the following to say about what the game's story will entail.

The story of Man of Medan starts off on a dive boat in the South Pacific. With a rumored World War II wreck to find and plenty of on-deck partying to be had, our group of four young Americans and their skipper Fliss get ready for what should be the trip of a lifetime, but it doesn’t go quite to plan. As the day unfolds and a storm rolls in, they find themselves trapped on board a ghost ship. Subjected to unimaginable stress and terror, they must try to find a way to escape the ship and its sinister history.

Samuels mentioned that should the new game be a success, fans should expect to see a lot more entries in their anthology. Thirty-nine more to be exact, which is quite an undertaking and something that Samuels agrees will take some time. Man of Medan is expected to release some time in 2019 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
