Supermassive, the studio that originally brought the cult classic 2015 PlayStation 4 horror game Until Dawn, have been quite busy the past few years. Since 2019, three games have been released in their horror anthology series known as The Dark Pictures. Though, some of these entries have definitely fared better than others. Perhaps even more surprising is the fact that this isn’t all the British developer has been busy with. The Quarry is a fresh new title announced by the team. Set entirely outside of the anthology franchise and harkening back to the vibes of earlier forays, this one certainly looks promising.
School’s out for Summer. Teenage counsellors at Hackett’s Quarry camp enjoy their last day at the resort. To celebrate, they throw a party with no adults, no kids and no rules. Only the reason they may not return to this getaway is for reasons far grimmer than they previously realised. Our party of teens will be hunted by “blood-drenched locals and something far more sinister.” Can your decision making and survival skills aid them in their escape?
Nine playable characters will be present in your hellish journey. Scream‘s David Arquette, Ariel Winter (Modern Family), Justice Smith (Jurassic World), Brenda Song (Dollface), Lance Henriksen (Aliens) and horror movie veteran Lin Shaye make up just some of the star-studded cast. There’s some pretty stellar talent in there. The idea of slapping them all in a Friday the 13th-style setting admittedly has me excited.
Better yet, The Quarry is closer than you’d think, releasing on June 10th for PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC via Steam. Meanwhile, The Devil In Me, the fourth and final instalment in the Dark Pictures Anthology series also releases sometime this year. There’s plenty of horror goodness to come from Supermassive yet!
