It’s Not a Dream, Little Nightmares’ Story Continues with Upcoming Expansion Pass: Secrets of the Maw

Are you dreaming about having more LITTLE NIGHTMARES in your life? Well, your dreams are about to come true as BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. is announcing that the critically-acclaimed adventure title from Tarsier Studios will be getting its own DLC expansion pass, Secrets of the Maw, which will add three new chapters to tell a parallel story to the events in the original LITTLE NIGHTMARES game. Starting in July, players can access new content on the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, and PC via STEAM.

The new LITTLE NIGHTMARES DLC introduces The Runaway Kid, another prisoner looking for a way out of the dark depths of The Maw, an eerie, twisted vessel filled with disturbing and dangerous enemies who are eager to devour their next victim. During his journey, The Runaway Kid will visit unseen areas of the Maw in three different chapters: The Depths, The Hideway, and a last secret location, which offers new challenges to overcome and an alternative perspective on Six’s adventures.

In the first chapter, The Depths, The Runaway Kid explores the foul and murky sewers as he tries to escape from an insidious threat that lurks underwater. In November, players will be taken to The Hideway, a machine-themed section where the Nomes reside. The third and final chapter will be releasing in January 2018, and will ultimately determine the fate of The Runaway Kid.

LITTLE NIGHTMARES is available digitally now in the Americas for the PlayStation 4 system, Xbox One, and PC via STEAM. The Secrets of the Maw Expansion Pass is available now for the PlayStation Network, Xbox Live store, and STEAM, providing access to upcoming DLC content as soon as it is available to the public.

Wow, i did not expect the tease at the end of the accolades trailer to be an expansion and to be released with 3 separate dlc. I wonder how long each chapter will be though, an hour maybe?

Hoping a complete edition gets a physical release in the future.

I'm not sure what to make of this. I thought Little Nightmares was great, but it also felt like a perfectly sized chunk. I didn't want more, nor did i think ti was too short when i was done. Guess i'm gonna end up checking the DLC out anyway.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And they have their own stories to tell, their own games to design. If they're making a new film in a franchise you enjoy, do you also not care who makes it? (22 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Yeah, I wouldn't want Naughty Dog anywhere near Half Life. They'd turn it into a generic and linear run of the mill action shooter that looks good, but overrated. (24 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX It's not like those people working on this imaginary game aren't working on other real games instead anyway. Nothing is lost. (35 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And I don't prefer to have "nothing" because I bother to recognize Valve's actual game development. (35 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX "I don't care who develops it" is a really weird thing for a person who cares about games to say. (36 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX But I understand that thought process in today's highly branded market. Gotta have that franchise name attached to a product to care about it. (37 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Sdarts: No, I prefer creators keep their content to themselves instead of farming it out to third parties because it's a terrible way to make video games. (37 minutes ago)
