The creators of Until Dawn just announced a new thriller where your choices matter. The difference? So do your friends’.
Hidden Agenda has you and your friends controlling the decisions of a homicide investigator and a district attorney who are currently involved in the case of a serial killer called The Trapper. With Until Dawn, Supermassive noticed that many people played in groups and made collective decisions, so in Hidden Agendas, they allow you and up to five friends to vote on decisions via your phones.
The second-screen functionality doesn’t stop there. Occasionally a hidden agenda will be secretly passed to a player’s phone. It’s up to the group to figure out who has the agenda and what it is while that player tries to remain hidden and get the group to vote his or her way.
We really loved Until Dawn, and you can watch us play it here. It’s surprisingly fun to play with friends, so this new focus on multiplayer looks promising. Hidden Agenda releases on PlayStation 4 later this year.
