Until Dawn prequel The Inpatient now has a release date. Developer Supermassive Games announced today that the PlayStation VR horror game will release this November. PSVR owners will be able to purchase the game on November 22, and pre-orders will start on August 30.
Here’s how Supermassive Games described the PlayStation VR exclusive over at the PlayStation Blog:
As you may remember from our E3 announcement, The Inpatient is a horror game with psychological elements. Set in the Blackwood Sanatorium from Until Dawn, the game transports you back to the 1950s when the facility was in its bustling prime.
You take on the role of a patient with no knowledge of who you are or how you got to be there. Choice and consequence are integral to the gameplay.
As you investigate the Blackwood Sanatorium in an effort to recall lost memories and discover who you are, your decisions and actions will determine the fate of people that you meet. You’ll get to influence and shape how the story unfolds as you witness the horrific events of the sanatorium’s final days.
For more on The Inpatient, check out our E3 2017 The Inpatient preview. Here’s a snippet of what Chandler Wood had to say:
Easily one of the most visually impressive PSVR games, The Inpatient drives its terror through psychological means, immersing the player in the eerie unknown and creating an unease that persists throughout. The story of the first was a brilliant thrill ride through multiple horror genres, and The Inpatient has the potential to drop us right in the middle of it all using the virtual reality platform. When I stood up for the short demo, I was visibly shaken, a mixture of emotions flowing through me from confusion to unease and fear. If you know the story of Until Dawn, you know how the story of The Inpatient is likely to end, but with what I saw, I’m convinced there’s even more to Blackwood Sanatorium than the history that we dug up in Until Dawn. Looks like we’re going to have to get admitted to discover those secrets.
The Inpatient releases November 22 exclusively for PlayStation VR.
