The Dark Pictures Little Hope release date has been locked in for 30 October, Supermassive and Bandai Namco confirmed overnight.
The second in a horrific anthology series, Little Hope stars Will Coulter as one of the game’s leads, following on from Shawn Ashmore in The Dark Pictures Man of Medan.
“As each of the games in the series are very different, so too are our inspirations. The cinematic and literary influences for this game include The Witch, Season of the Witch, and Blair Witch, but people will recognise some other strong influences such as Hellbound Heart, Hellraiser and other similar works by Barker,” Supermassive’s Pete Samuels wrote on the PlayStation Blog.
“Also, two of my personal favourites It Follows and The Omen. Interestingly, our studio is just a stone’s throw from Guildford Cathedral which features strongly in Richard Donner’s 1976 classic.”
