No one can hear you scream

Tomorrow sees Supermassive Games launch The Devil in Me, the final “season one” episode of its celebrated Dark Pictures Anthology — And, in keeping with series tradition, the new title features a spooky teaser trailer for the series’ next release, which has now been confirmed as sci-fi shocker Directive 8020.

The preview features a mission report from a lonely vessel in the vast reaches of the stars. Seemingly on a mission to find a new home for humanity, the team has apparently run afoul of some otherworldly intruder — with hints offered that it has the ability to replicate human beings. So, while it’s very cliche for me to say so, this would suggest a sort of “Alien meets The Thing” vibe. Sounds wicked.

You can check out the new teaser trailer below, as captured by GameTrailers.

As a cool bit of trivia “Directive 8020” is an actual NASA directive. It is a directive issued for “Biological contamination control for outbound and inbound planetary spacecraft”. This is all well and good on paper, but it will be interesting to see how it works out within the reality of some terrifying, shapeshifting monstrosity. Let’s just wait here for a while… See what happens.

The Dark Pictures: The Devil in Me launches tomorrow, November 18, on PlayStation, PC, and Xbox.
