The Inpatient is an upcoming psychological horror video game developed by Supermassive Games and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment for PlayStation 4 and its virtual reality headset PlayStation VR. It is set 60 years before the events of Until Dawn.
The Inpatient will release on 23 Jan 2018
The Inpatient is a survival horror game played from a first-person perspective. The player controls a patient—whose gender is subject to choice—suffering from amnesia within the Blackwood Sanatorium, and intent on reclaiming their memories. The player character's entire body is visible, should the player gaze down with the PlayStation VR headset. Non-player characters are caused to react via voice recognition. The outcome of the story is entirely consequent upon the decisions that are made.
The developer of The Inpatient is Supermassive Games, who uses the Unreal Engine 4 in its creation. The game acts as a prequel to 2015's Until Dawn, set inside the Blackwood Sanatorium sixty years prior to the events of the original. Nik Bowen, Graham Reznick and Larry Fessenden returned as director and writers, respectively. In order to subconsciously draw players into the story, Supermassive Games employed elements of psychological horror, which included them rendering three-dimensional binaural audio to supplement the visuals.
