Twin Mirror is a new story-driven adventure game coming to PS4. It’s being developed by Dontnod Entertainment, the studio behind Life is Strange and Vampyr, so it’s no wonder the game will revolve around player choice as part of a branching narrative. The game has a dark tone and is described as a psychological thriller. Check out the reveal trailer above.
You play as Sam, who returns to his (desolate) hometown of Basswood, West Virginia to attend the funeral of his best friend. Sam is already having a pretty tough time; he’s also recovering from a bad break-up. Things take a turn for the worst when he wakes up with no memory of the previous night and discovers a blood-stained shirt in his hotel room.
Sam needs to recall his memories and search for clues to discover the truth in a mysterious investigation. Much like Life is Strange, the game will confront many heavy themes; he must come to terms with heartbreak in a place where “the line between truth and deception is blurred.”
Twin Mirror will release in 2019. This is just one of several pre-E3 announcements Sony is making, and we could see more about the game at Sony’s upcoming press conference. That takes place on Monday, June 11; here are all the details on how to watch Sony’s E3 2018 press conference.
