E3 2017: The Inpatient, Until Dawn Prequel Revealed

Supermassive Games have been busy bees this year, with Hidden Agenda recently being announced for PS4, and two PSVR titles in the pipeline, including The Inpatient, a prequel to Until Dawn.

The game takes place 60 years before the events of Until Dawn, taking place in Blackwood Sanatorium, and if the recent The Town of Light has taught us anything, asylums of the early 1900’s aren’t friendly places to stay.

Whilst Until Dawn: Rush of Blood was an on-rail shooter, The Inpatient looks set to take a very different direction, going down the psychological horror route instead. Not a lot can be gleamed from the trailer; there’s a sweep of the rooms in the asylum, a glimpse of the staff, and a doctor talking to you in that patronising manner they have perfected. Other than that, not much can be learned, though in Until Dawn, the main monsters of the game were Wendigos, so presumably The Inpatient will focus on how these creatures came to be.
