PlayStation just announced another new game during their Countdown to E3 livestream: Twin Mirror. Developed by Dontnod and published by Bandai Namco, Twin Mirror seems to be a single-player story-driven adventure game, similar to Dontnod’s most recent release, Vampyr.
The game is slated to come to PS4 in 2019.
Twin Mirror Trailer:
In the trailer we see the protagonist of Twin Mirror, Sam, return to the town of Basswood in West Virginia, before waking up with a shirt covered in blood and no memory of what went down.
We then see him walk through some ethereal landscapes and fight a ghostly figure as he tries to recover his memories, hinting that there could be a supernatural - as well as psychological- element to the game too.
Judging from the trailer, Dontnod seem to be aiming for a more photorealistic graphical style, again similar to what we saw with Vampyr, rather than the more stylised visuals of Life is Strange.
In the official post on the PlayStation blog, Cyrus Wesson, Community Specialist for Bandai Namco said:
“An exciting, story-driven adventure game, Twin Mirror is a compelling journey that explores the elements of choice and hypocrisy, while paving a players’ way toward the conclusion of their investigation.
“Truth, duality, and polarity will all become factors as players dictate their future through personal choices, while investigating the town the protagonist calls home.
“Twin Mirror is a psychological thriller wrapped around an investigation where your memories, choices, and relationships will determine Sam’s complicated fate. As he comes to terms with heartbreak, homecoming, and the perpetual struggle of adulthood, Sam will need your help exploring a dark and emotional adventure where the line between truth and deception is blurred.”
There are still a few more days of announcements coming from Sony’s pre-E3 livestreams, before the main event kicks off on Monday. You’ll be able to watch the Sony E3 press conference - along with all the others - on VG247, where we’ve embedded every player you’ll need.
