Man of Medan is the next major game from the developers of the acclaimed Until Dawn. With the title launching next month Bandai Namco has been doubling down on marketing, with new information about the game’s multiplayer modes and upcoming titles in The Dark Pictures Anthology.

First off, Man of Medan will include 2 multiplayer modes. The first is Shared Story Mode, where 2 players online control separate characters in the same story. With the consequences of each player’s actions directly causing ripples within the narrative.

The next option is Movie Night Mode. Here 2 to 5 players pass the controller around, taking control of each character. This mode is for local cooperative play.

In an interview with IGN, Supermassive Games CEO Pete Samuels explained that Man of Medan will be part of an 8 game series.

“We have an arc in mind that plays over eight games,” said Supermassive Games CEO Pete Samuels. “He’s really the only consistency across the Anthology. Everything from a story, character perspective, we want to be a surprise. We want to surprise people each time – when we announce the second game, we want it to be the last thing people expected, in terms of theme and subgenre and whatever. And then again with the third one. We have them mapped out for the first eight.”

Samuels elaborated that the studio is planning for a 2 game per year. With a new director, screenwriters, actors, and development teams taking control of each game.

Man of Medan launches this August 30th for PS4, PC, and Xbox One.
