Supermassive Games is renowned for the star-studded cast the studio often hires to give life to its experimental horror games. From Until Dawn’s Rami Malek and Peter Stormare to Man of Medan’s Shawn Ashmore, the studio has constantly drafted in top Hollywood talent to perform in its games, and The Dark Pictures Anthology is no stranger to a famous face or two.
In this short guide we’re going to run through all of the celebrity castings in The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope, starting with a little primer about the game and then touching on the past filmography of the game’s cast. Follow along to learn about the full cast of characters who are set to appear in The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope.
What to expect in Little Hope
The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope is the second instalment in The Dark Pictures Anthology series, following Man of Medan, which launched in August 2019. Little Hope is set to launch on October 30, 2020, for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
The game is a single-player and multiplayer survival horror title, where dialogue choices, quick time events and narrative flashpoints decide the fate of the game’s characters. There are two multiplayer modes available, Shared Story and Movie Night. Shared Story is a co-operative version of the game experienced by two players online, and Movie Night allows a group of players to crowd around one screen and pass the controller between each other, taking control of different characters throughout the tale.
The actual premise of the game is as follows: The tale follows a set of college students and their teacher who become stranded in a place called Little Hope – a town known for its ties to witch hunts in the 17th century. They appear to stumble upon versions of themselves from the past, going through a period-appropriate predicament. The wider game is about controlling these characters throughout the time periods in order to solve the mystery of the town of Little Hope.
