What you need to know

  • Man of Medan is an upcoming horror title from Supermassive Games.
  • The developer previously worked on Until Dawn for PlayStation 4.
  • The game runs at 4K resolution on Xbox One X and features multiplayer.
  • You can preorder Man of Medan for $30 through the Microsoft Store.

Until Dawn is an incredibly popular PlayStation 4 exclusive that provided gamers with a new take on the horror genre. While the game was well-received, it didn't set the sales charts ablaze. This was due to the fact that it was exclusive, and that it was priced as a "AAA" experience. Since then, developer Supermassive Games has gone multi-platform, and has partnered with Bandai Namco to deliver a similar game called "The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan."

The Dark Pictures Anthology is a series of standalone, branching cinematic horror games featuring a multiplayer mode. In Man of Medan, five friends set sail on a holiday diving trip that soon changes into something much more sinister. You're tasked with exploring a ghost ship and uncovering the mystery behind it. Luckily, the wait won't be too long because it's coming on August 30.

Unlike Until Dawn, Man of Medan is priced at $30. This is a great entry point because it's a new franchise and the horror genre isn't as popular. Such a game would be perfect for Xbox Game Pass. Luckily, Xbox One X owners are in for another treat.

According to the Microsoft Store, the game runs at 4K resolution on Xbox One X and feature high dynamic range lighting. It should look incredible on modern displays. Hopefully, Man of Medan will get a multiplayer test soon so that we can experience it before launch. The photorealistic visuals look incredible.
