THQ Nordic reboots Black Mirror

THQ Nordic and King Art have unveiled Black Mirror, a new re-imagining of the Gothic horror adventure series. Set to release on November 28 for PC and consoles, the game takes place in Scotland in 1926 and follows David Gordon in his ancestral home after his father's death, where he will discover dark secrets that took away many of his ancestors' sanity.

THQ Nordic announces new game: Black Mirror scheduled for release this November
A new adventure from the famous, spine-chilling franchise will be released on 28.11.2017 on PC, PlayStation®4 and Xbox One

Vienna/Austria, Bremen/Germany: 16th August 2017 – THQ Nordic is thrilled to reveal its new project: Black Mirror, a Gothic horror adventure, due for release on 28th November 2017. The game will be developed by the Bremen studio KING Art Games, known for “The Book of Unwritten Tales”, “The Dwarves” and “The Raven”, and will be available on PC/Mac/Linux, PS4 and Xbox One.

Black Mirror - The Brand
The game name may already exist one way or another, and no, we’re not talking about the Netflix series. The first part of the creepy point-and-click series was released in 2004 as “The Black Mirror”, which produced two more spin-offs, “Black Mirror II” (2009) and “Black Mirror III” (2011).

But don’t worry, even players unfamiliar with the previous games in the series can also enjoy Black Mirror, because this reboot of the franchise tells a totally independent and new story. The major difference between the new and old Black Mirror, apart from the modern graphics of course, will be a new gameplay element: interaction with vision-like apparitions.

gamescom 2017 and Website
A playable demo of Black Mirror will be ready for gamescom 2017 for both industry and public visitors to try out, and the THQ Nordic Stand (A011) is in the Entertainment Area in Hall 8.

Those who can’t attend gamescom in Cologne, can at least visit our new website for a first impression of Black Mirror:

Great CGI and excellent music in Scottish Gaelic/Scots Gaelic. Have watched it over a dozen times now. Really excited for the game, if it delivers half of what the CGI trailer promises, it will be a great game.
