The Devil in Me Is a Bigger and Better Dark Pictures Title

After three increasingly better entries in The Dark Pictures Anthology from Until Dawn team Supermassive Games, The Devil in Me looks like a properly bigger and expanded sequel. While Man of Medan, Little Hope, and House of Ashes all felt like they were cut from the same cloth, the season one finale of the anthology series comes equipped with genuine gameplay improvements and new features. With what appears to be the franchise’s best setting yet, The Devil in Me is seemingly primed to continue that upwards trend in quality.

Now confirmed to be releasing for PS5 and PS4 on 18th November 2024, we recently had the chance to view a half an hour presentation which provided a deep dive into the game’s inspirations, setting, characters, and plot. Just like other instalments in The Dark Pictures Anthology, this is a standalone story that only shares The Curator character from the other entries.

The setting this time around is a creepy, abandoned hotel that’s said to be an exact recreation of the famous World’s Fair Hotel. In 1861, Dr. Howard Henry Holmes became known as America’s first serial killer after he lined his bed and breakfast with traps designed to kill guests — or at least never let them leave. He pleaded guilty to 27 murders and was hanged in May 1896, but very little is known about what the innards of the hotel actually looked like.

Fast forward to the present day and a TV production company is basing its season finale on the killings of H. H. Holmes. Without any idea what the hotel actually looked like beyond the front door, though, the team is running out of ideas, money, and content fast. That is until they receive a call out of the blue from someone claiming to know a place with an exact recreation of the hotel from hell. Believing they’ve hit the jackpot, the crew hands over their mobile phones and travels to the remote location. The problem is that the recreation of the World’s Fair Hotel awaiting them is a lot more accurate than they’re expecting.
