THQ Nordic is known as the publisher for the upcoming Darksiders 3, however, the company is looking to increase its portfolio of titles, as THQ Nordic has announced the revival of the Black Mirror franchise with the announcement of Black Mirror for November 2017.
Black Mirror is a point a click-adventure title and a reboot of the early 2000s Gothic-horror series. The upcoming game will tell a completely new story and will be independent of earlier titles. Players will take on the role of David Gordon and will investigate the nightmarish visions that plague his mind.
Scotland, 1926. Following the death of his father, David Gordon visits his ancestral home for the first time in his life. A life that is soon threatened by the dark secrets that claimed the sanity of many Gordons before him. Blood is not always thicker than water.
According to the developers, despite the game will feature monsters but, the game’s focus will not be them instead the story will focus on psychological horror. The game will also be playable at Gamescom 2017 and seems to be one of the titles that THQ Nordic will reveal at the event.
According to THQ, it will also be announcing an original new IP at the event and describes it as an open world RPG set in a unique universe and will be a post-apocalyptic kung-fu fable.
According to the Producer Martin Kreuch, while Black Mirror will be a point-and-click adventure but, the game will be more than that. He added that the game will feature more room to explore while retaining its classic “point-and-click style”.
We have developed a new interpretation that both retains the strengths of the original games and gives us more room to explore fresh possibilities in terms of gameplay so that players can experience the world of Black Mirror in a more direct and free way, and not ‘just’ in classic point-and-click style.
Black Mirror will launch on November 28, 2017, for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
