The Devil in Me, the fourth installment in the Dark Pictures Anthology, will launch Nov. 18 for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, Supermassive Games announced Thursday.
Hot off the success of one-shot The Quarry, Supermassive is back with another entry in its two-years-old anthology series. This time, the narrative horror adventure series follows a group of documentarians lured to a remote island hotel, where they're picked off one by one, slasher-style.
The Devil in Me Release Date Announced
The story is inspired by H.H. Holmes, the man credited as the first American serial killer. Holmes is famous thanks to mistaken contemporaneous reports that he turned the hotel he operated into a "Murder Castle" containing torture chambers, gas chambers, trap doors and other horrors. Although none of those claims were true, Holmes' myth has only grown over time.
Supermassive has included a few gameplay improvements in the new game — a simple inventory system, puzzles, the ability to crouch, crawl and run — but as always the narrative is the main draw.
Writing on the Xbox blog, game director Tom Heaton said the new features "deepen and enhance the gameplay of the Dark Pictures Anthology and give players more control over how they evade and tackle the twisted killer that is toying with them. But The Devil in Me still delivers on the core elements that our fans love: cinematic horror, impossible dilemmas, terrifying scares, and gruesome deaths."
The Devil in Me is now available for pre-order on the Xbox Store.
