“No children. No adults. No rules.”
Yesterday, Supermassive Games teased everyone with a short (but still disturbing) snippet of its upcoming game, The Quarry. Now, fans have had an even deeper idea behind the scenes of what horrors await us when the game launches this June.
Coming from the same team that brought us Until Dawn’s Wendigo-filled nightmare, The Quarry will once again focus on a group of teenagers. But rather than an escape to a snowy cabin, this time around the game will focus on nine counselors on their last day of summer camp.
“As the sun goes down, the teen counselors at Hackett’s Quarry throw a party to celebrate. No children. No adults. No rules.”
Of course, being a Supermassive game, things are not going smoothly for these poor teenagers and their night of debauched fun soon turns deadly when they are “hounded by locals drenched in blood and something far more sinister”.
As the story progresses, players will have the opportunity to take on the role of each of the nine young counselors as they try to survive the night. As with Until Dawn, every choice will have a consequence as players try to make their way through the “tangled web of possibilities”.
Each of these nine advisers can be the protagonist of the game … or they can face death on the ground of Hackett’s Quarry.
If that premise wasn’t enough to tempt horror fans, there’s more.
The Quarry’s cast boasts several horror veterans, including Scream’s David Arquette and A Nightmare on Elm Street’s Lin Shaye. Joining them are Ariel Winter, famous for her role as Alex Dunphy in Modern Family and Justice Smith from the films Detective Pikachu and Jurassic World.
The Quarry will be released on June 10 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One and Windows PC via Steam and is now available for pre-order.
