Man of Medan

Man of Medan Box Art

This game was released on August 30, 2019 and is no longer available to pre-order. Any incentives that were offered are listed below.

Man of Medan is the first installment in Supermassive Games’ anthology of standalone supernatural horror games The Dark Pictures. The story follows a group of young divers on vacation who are kidnapped and trapped on a ghost ship. The game has a branching storyline with multiple endings, and the choices the player makes decide which characters live and die.

The replayability of The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan is further enhanced by something called the Curator’s Cut, which is unlocked after completing the main story once – more on that after the jump.

Pre-order Bonuses

The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan

Pre-ordering Man of Medan grants day one access to the Curator’s Cut, which becomes available after beating the game once. The Curator’s Cut is said to “a whole new layer to how the player understands and interacts with the story”, allowing the player to:

  • Replay previous scenes from the perspective of different characters
  • Experience entirely new scenes and secrets not featured in the original playthrough
  • Make new decisions and choices that change the story in different ways

And to those who do not pre-order, the Curator’s Cut mode will become available free of charge at the end of November 2019.

The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan will be released physically and digitally for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and digitally-only for PC via Steam on August 30, 2019.

    I know this is super late, but FYI you might want to pre-order to get that bonus chapter/scene.
    Why is that? Well, based on their previous game, Until Dawn, there was a bonus playable chapter, that was NEVER released on the Playstation Store for those that didn’t buy the game Day 1. So, that means you can never experience it, until you are lucky to find unused codes online (very doubtful, since the game was niche). That is why I hate digital add-on stuff! Great game though…

    Anyways, it MIGHT not happen with Man of Medan, since it is a multi-platform tale, but if you hate missing out on content (like me), maybe think about this carefully.
    FYI, I know I sound like I’m shilling for this game, but I am NOT. I just want to help you guys, in case you run into that kind of situation…

    Solid advice and the exact reason I chose to preorder myself.

    You’re welcome, guys!
    It’s difficult to gauge what games will release their Day 1 content afterwards or NEVER… in my experience I always “think” it’s the really niche games, but that isn’t always the case.
    For example: Blue Reflection a really niche RPG that had digital content exclusive to GameStop USA/EB Games and was never released on PSN. I have been searching for it on eBay the last 3 months… no success.
    Whereas a game like A Plague Tale: Innocence ( another niche title from Europe) had Day 1 content that was immediately available on the day of release.
    Happy gaming, everyone!
