Fans of the excellent Until Dawn have something to look forward to this year, as the game's prequel, The Inpatient, will be released in just a few months. If you have never heard of the game before, you definitely want to check out a brand new trailer that has been released recently.
The new trailer, which can be watched below, showcases the PSVR exclusive game's main location, the Blackwood Sanatorium, as well as characters and more. The trailer also confirms the November 21st release date for all regions.
The focus of the trailer is on the story of the game. As you explore Blackwood Sanatorium you’ll start to piece together the rich backstory. Certain objects you find will trigger vivid flashbacks, helping you to discover your past and the circumstances which brought you there. You’ll also get to meet the staff and patients, each with their own agendas and motivations which may or may not be immediately clear. We hope you enjoy the trailer and can’t wait for you to play The Inpatient and Bravo Team soon.
The game's producer Simon Harris recently shared some new details on the setting and story on 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 1950’s 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.
The Inpatient launches exclusively on PlayStation VR on November 21st.
