Bandai Namco have announced the release date for cinematic horror adventure game The Dark Pictures: Little Hope.
The game sees three students and two teachers stuck in the town of Little Hope, a place with a dark past from the 15th century as witch trials took place. As with past Dark Pictures games, the choices players make can dictate who lives and who dies.
Players can play alone, online in 2 player co-op, or in a group of up to five locally for “movie night.” Those who pre-order the game will gain early access to the Curator’s Cut. This allows players to “play previously unplayable scenes with different playable characters.”
The Curator’s Cut is playable after completing the main game, and will be available for free “around” the time of launch. You can find the release date trailer below.
