Supermassive has released a video that describes how the multiplayer Movie Night mode works within The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan.
“When we made Until Dawn, one of the things that happened was that people streamed the game,” Game Director Tom Heaton explained. “And one of the things that they did when they streamed the game was they invited a bunch of people round. They all sat on the sofa and they chose a character and they controlled the character when that character was controllable and they kind of did a very loose competition around it.
“So Movie Night mode is our way of reflecting that back to the player. It’s our way of enabling that behaviour and refining it a little bit.”
In Man of Medan, players will be able to identify how many people intend to play the game. Then, you’ll be able to input your name and choose one of the in-game characters to control. From there, Man of Medan will tell each player when it’s their turn to play.
Alongside single-player and this multiplayer mode, players can engage with Man of Medan with a two-player mode called Shared Story. Supermassive’s promised a look into Movie Night in a week’s time.
