Man of Medan Multiplayer Modes Revealed

Take turns in Man of Medan multiplayer modes; Shared Story and Movie Night to experience a new level of narrative twist.

After seeing unforeseen success with interactive drama horror game Until Dawn, developer Supermassive Games is returning with their newest project Man of Medan, which will be a part of their The Dark Pictures Anthology series.

Recently, two new multiplayer modes; Shared Story mode and Movie Night mode for the standalone cinematic horror experience is revealed that would lead players to different narrative or unfortunate ends via multiple playthroughs.

You can engage in a two-player online play in Shared Story mode where each of you controls a different in-game character but whatever choices you end up making, it will eventually affect you both and that is an intense ride for sure.

Both of your characters can appear on screen at the same time and even explore same area or engage in a conversation. Though you can have your plans ready but they will probably become useless by wave of consequence for your choices.

However, there are times when such unexpected situation can work on your favor and often times it may not. You and your partner may come up with a bright idea but it may actually cause trouble or a foolish mistake may aid you at a later point.

Things will go a bit different in Movie Night mode that is more like a local co-op gameplay consisting five people. Each player can select their character and then pass on control whenever the game focuses on that character.

At times, the game will let you know how each of you is doing so far to stay alive and it is a collaborative way of enjoying the narrative together, which quickly shifts in so many dramatic ways that you would often forget what to make of them.

Everyone among your group may have a better idea on their head but whether or not they would work is something you won't know only until you implement them in action and it opens up door for so many outcomes no one ever thought of.

Aspects that worked well for Until Dawn are improved to provide better feel of suspense with new level of tensions in a horror journey. Players would be able to relate to involved characters more because of impactful choices they will make.

Already proven their capability in making horror game that works for fans, Supermassive Games creates a lot of expectation for Man of Medan that is currently scheduled to release on August 30, 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Operating on two different modes, the rifle either fires high-velocity wave of electricity bolts in automatic rounds or can be used to unleash an "overcharge" storm at the freaks and see them all left in meaty pieces in front of you.

A community-made map named Spillway set on a dam facility is added to KF2 as part of the event that is compatible for Endless, Survival, VS Survival and Weekly Outbreaks game modes to have more Zed encounters within corridors and open spaces.

Alien: Blackout Revealed

Amanda Ripley from Alien: Isolation returns for another showdown with a deadly Xenomorph in Alien: Blackout mobile game.

Last year in January, 20th Century Fox has acquired developer Cold Iron Studios for their video game division FoxNext Games and they announced to have been working on a shooter title that is set on the sci-fi horror franchise of Alien, created by director Ridley Scott in 1979.

Then Alien: Blackout title being trademarked by Fox revealed the name of the game and it was about to be announced at The Game Awards 2018, which didn't happen in the end. The game has finally dropped a trailer and it turns out to be a premium mobile game.

The trailer gives away a survival horror type atmosphere the game offers where daughter of Ellen Ripley and the protagonist of Alien: Isolation, Amanda Ripley is shown to be locked with a Xenomorph aboard Weyland-Yutani space station.

Players will assume her role in a struggle to survive the deadliest species of the galaxy trying to outsmart her and the crew in every move. In order to stay alive, you could risk the lives of other crew members or try to rely on the damaged controls of the station.

Instead jumping with joy, people who eagerly waited for the reveal are giving the title a cold shoulder, because the game was rumored to be shooter title for PC and consoles but then turned out to be a mobile app that no one asked for.

Yes, the return of Amanda Ripley is really exciting for the fans that played the previous game but they wanted to play the new game on available major gaming platform and bringing the game on mobile after all this hype can simply turn out to be another greedy cashgrab attempt.

Alien: Blackout, a direct sequel to Alien: Isolation will be coming soon on App Store, Google Play and Amazon App Store for playing on mobile devices priced $4.99 only. FoxNext has associated themselves with D3 Go, Theory Interactive and Rival Games for the project.

James Wan Exits Resident Evil Movie Reboot

"Aquaman" director James Wan is no longer producing the upcoming Resident Evil Reboot movie for Constantin Films.

It was only a month ago, when we heard news of screenwriter Greg Russo has submitted his complete draft for the upcoming Resident Evil movie reboot to Constantin Films that is supposed to be produced by James Wan (Aquaman, The Conjuring).

It would have been a great fun for the curious audience to see how this successful director influences the movie with his classic style of horror but according to a recent report, Wan is no longer producing the upcoming film of RE franchise.

Wan was actually somewhat frustrated that the possibility of his involvement to the project was announced prematurely. In an interview with Bloody Disgusting, Wan cleared out that he is not doing it anymore as it has been dropped and then said the following.

It’s kind of annoying when things come and go, or things never came in the first place. I hate it when my projects get announced. It makes it seem like I’m attached to a lot of things when in fact I’m not necessarily doing so many things. A lot of my stuff just get announced and I don’t want them to be announced but people love to announce them.

RELATED: Monster Hunter Movie First Look Revealed

Even though Wan is out from the anticipated project, he is still attached to do a remake of South Korean zombie apocalypse action thriller Train to Busan and wishes to do proper justice to it, because it is a very beloved property to him.

He is currently busy with his upcoming DC Extended Universe superhero movie Aquaman, which is inbound for December 21 and his company Atomic Monster will start working on Swamp Thing series for DC Universe right away.

RELATED: New Doom Movie in Development

Shortly after the end of Resident Evil movie franchise by director Paul W.S. Anderson (Alien vs. Predator, Death Race) directed and actress Milla Jovovich (The Fifth Element, Ultraviolet) with the release of Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, a horror-centric reboot was announced.

RE movies had a six movie run that has grossed over $1 billion worldwide collectively. Even though Greg Russo wrote a script that will take the series back to the roots of horror just as the studio is interested in but he would very much like them to take a Texas Chainsaw Massacre-style approach.
