When Bandai Namco and Supermassive Games first announced the second installment in The Dark Anthology series, the game was slated for a Summer 2020 release. Unfortunately, the makers of the Man of Medan successor had to push back the release window to Fall 2020 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Today the Japanese video game publisher revealed an exact launch date for the survival horror title. The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope is now scheduled to arrive on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on October 30, 2020. A new launch trailer for the game has also been posted, as seen below.
Aside from the Standard Edition, a Limited Edition and a Collector's Edition have also been announced. The Limited Edition is set to include a copy of Man of Medan in addition to Little Hope and a cloth map, all packed together in a steel case with four slots, indicating that the series might get two more installments in the future. The Collector's Edition will include a copy of Little Hope, a map, Mary's ragdoll from the game and a similar steel book with four disc slots.
Those who pre-purchase the game will receive early access to a special Curator's Cut version of the game with bonus footage and different playable characters complete with different choices and outcomes. Three months after the game launches, the Curator's Cut will be released for free and will become available to players after finishing the main story.
Pre-orders for the upcoming horror title The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope are now open. Those interested in buying the game may do so through Bandai Namco, the game's official website or any other game retailers.
