Supermassive Games has only been committed to fall 2022 release window for The Devil in Me, but now the company has given a specific date. The next installment in the Dark Pictures Anthology will be releasing on November 18, 2022 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC for $39.99.

As announced at the Future Games Show, the studio had been hinting that it would be revealing the date quite soon, telling users to “mark their calendars” before the show. PlayStation Game Size on Twitter also preempted the announcement, as they seemingly found the store page on the backend first.
The trailer also showed off some of The Devil in Me‘s new features, which all seemed designed to add more gameplay. Players can now run, jump, climb, solve more involved puzzles, and take advantage of the title’s new inventory system. Supermassive also claims that the game has “extended exploration mechanics,” something that these mechanics appear to back up. The series has typically been in the style of other games in the narrative adventure genre that are more focused on making dialogue choices, but it seems like Supermassive is trying to break into new territory. The trailer also noted that it is over seven hours, which, if accurate, is longer than the other Dark Pictures games that usually hover around four to five hours.

The Devil in Me stars Jessie Buckley, known for her recent role in Men, as she explores a replica of H.H. Holmes’ “Murder Castle.” These extreme descriptions have often been debunked, but have lived on in myths, rumors, and, in this case, The Devil in Me, as it seems to be taking a lot of those inspirations to heart. The hotel in the game is similar to the lore surrounding Holmes’ hotel, giving the game an atmosphere similar to the Saw films as the protagonists come across a series of gruesome traps. The title is also a reference to Holmes, as he claimed he was possessed by Satan and reportedly said, “I was born with the devil in me.”
This game will also wrap up the first season of The Dark Pictures Anthology. However, many future entries have already been trademarked.
