2K and Supermassive Games have announced that the multiplayer portion of the narrative horror game The Quarry is being delayed. However, the single-player portion will still release in June as planned.
Originally scheduled for June 10, the multiplayer mode will now release on July 8.
“We’ve made the difficult decision to delay the online multiplayer mode to deliver the best possible experience for you,” a statement on 2K’s Twitter account read.
Billed as an “all-new horror experience” from the Until Dawn and The Dark Pictures studio, the game will be published by 2K this summer.
According to 2K: “As the sun sets on the last day of summer camp, the teenage counsellors of Hackett’s Quarry throw a party to celebrate. No kids. No adults. No rules.”
Supermassive Games provided the following description of the game: “Hunted by blood-drenched locals and something far more sinister, the teens’ party plans unravel into an unpredictable night of horror. Friendly banter and flirtations give way to life-or-death decisions, as relationships build or break under the strain of unimaginable choices.
“Play as each of the nine camp counsellors in a thrilling cinematic tale, where every choice shapes your unique story from a tangled web of possibilities. Any character can be the star of the show – or die before daylight comes. How will your story unfold?”
Players will be able to play the game with up to seven friends online. It will also feature a “party horror couch co-op experience” where each player chooses a counsellor and controls their actions.
The game’s cast includes David Arquette (Scream), Ariel Winter (Modern Family), Justice Smith (Jurassic World), Brenda Song (Dollface), Lance Henriksen (Aliens) and Lin Shaye (A Nightmare on Elm Street).
Supermassive also said players of any skill level will be able to enjoy the game thanks to a ‘Movie Mode’. It will let players “enjoy The Quarry as a binge-worthy cinematic thriller. Select how you want the story to unfold, kick back, and munch on some popcorn in between all the screams!”
