It is the fourth title in the series, it follows the same format as its predecessors: short, with optional multiplayer, and easy to pick up.
The trailer, released late last year, showed a few of the possible deaths that the characters can encounter should you make the wrong decisions.
Although we have no concrete release date yet, the Steam page for The Dark Pictures Anthology: The Devil In Me lets us know more about the game.
The premise is set:
A group of documentary film makers receive a mysterious call inviting them to a modern-day replica of serial killer H.H. Holmes’ ‘Murder Castle’. It’s an opportunity that’s too good to pass up and could be just the thing they’re looking for to win some much-needed public interest.
The hotel is the perfect set for their new episode, but things aren’t quite as they seem. The crew discover they’re being watched and even manipulated, and suddenly there’s much more at stake than just their ratings!
