Here's how multiplayer works in Supermassive's Man of Medan

This isn't the first time that Supermassive Games has toyed with multiplayer ideas as their earlier title Hidden Agenda used the PlayLink system for PlayStation 4 to allow multiple players to make decisions.

Players can also play solo mode on their lonesome, of course.

While Supermassive Games' The Dark Pictures Anthology will be a purely story-focused experience, the developer just announced something that should get fans excited.

The second game mode is the Movie Night Mode. When the action switches to another character, you'll be encouraged to pass the controller to whoever's picked that character. Trying to survive gets a little more dicey when you co-op partner is making their own decisions behind your back.

Each game is created to be replayable, with branching storylines, paths, and numerous endings created to keep players coming back for more. According to Samuels, this "has thrown up some interesting design challenges - the most significant of which was in the two-player Shared Story, and how to have both players enjoy a great story when they each see different things and neither sees everything. Everything else from a story, character perspective, we want to be a surprise".

While Until Dawn was designed purely as a single-player title, it found life as a secret multiplayer title. Man of Medan will be the first of Supermassive Games "The Dark Pictures" series of games. Groups of friends began to band together to make decisions as a group. According to series director and executive producer Pete Samuels, the team drew inspiration from the creative ways people played Until Dawn together when designing both multiplayer options.

While every Dark Pictures game aims to take a different horror genre as its base, the game genre will remain fairly static.

Unlike Telltale episodic games, The Dark Pictures Anthology will be released as a single product with games being released approximately twice per year.
