So far, we’ve seen the horrors of the sea, witch trials and what lurks beneath the desert. But now, we are heading to the aptly named Murder Hotel. Sounds delightful. Find out what horrors await in this final instalment of Season One of The Dark Pictures Anthology: The Devil in Me, out today on Xbox, PlayStation and PC.
The Devil in Me is based on real-life murderer H.H. Holmes and his ‘Murder Castle’. In the game, a documentary crew have been invited to the World’s Fair Hotel, a modern-day replica of Holmes’ Murder Castle. For a crew struggling for work, it is too good an opportunity to pass up.
Unsurprisingly, things take a turn for the worse for the film crew. The Devil in Me doesn’t follow in the footsteps of Man of Medan, Little Hope, House of Ashes and then not call itself a horror game. The crew will need to survive their trip to the hotel by avoiding the ‘killing rooms’. Which sounds more like a Saw film than anything.
The Devil in Me also brings a couple of new features for this season finale. An inventory can be used to store key items, some of which will come in handy for the puzzles themselves. Plus, new movement actions such as the ability to run, jump and climb.
And as usual, the multiplayer modes for online and local play both return. Take a look at the launch trailer to see what horrors await:
The Dark Pictures Anthology: The Devil in Me is out now priced at £34.99 on the Xbox Store. A free demo also awaits.
