THQ Nordic announces a new game: “Black Mirror” is scheduled for release this November. A new adventure from the famous, spine-chilling franchise will be released on November 28, 2017 on PC, PlayStation®4 and Xbox One.

Quote:
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 adventure 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.

THQ Nordic & KING Art


“One of the outstanding features of the Black Mirror game series is the unique atmosphere which was essentially created by KING Art in the original trilogy. We have developed a new interpretation that both retains the strengths of the original games and gives us more room to explore fresh possibilities in terms of gameplay so that players can experience the world of Black Mirror in a more direct and free way, and not “just” in classic point-and-click style.” – Martin Kreuch, Producer at THQ Nordic.

“Black Mirror is a series that is really close to my heart, and it was fantastic to be immersed in the Gothic horror genre again; the human psyche is a fascinating playground!” – Achim Heidelauf, Producer “Black Mirror” (2017), Director & Writer “Black Mirror II” (2009).

“Black Mirror II” (2009) was the first big adventure KING Art worked on, and it’s fantastic to be able to create the new world of the Gordons and Black Mirror. We will be emphasising the unsettling atmosphere and the meticulous detail that the fans of a Black Mirror title have come to expect.” Jan Theysen, Creative Director KING Art Games.



Happy Gaming!

So is this Black Mirror 4 or a reboot of the first Black Mirror?

The trailer text says this:

Quote:
Scotland, 1926. Following the death of his father, David Gordon visits his ancestral home for the first time in his life. A life that is soon threatened by the dark secrets that claimed the sanity of many Gordons before him. Blood is not always thicker than water.

The description doesn't tell me whether it's a "Black Mirror 4" or a complete reboot of the series.
It could be a prequel that takes place in 1926.
Or it could be a complete reboot that takes place in 1926.

I am presuming it's an entirely new game and not a re-hash - on reading this snippet from the announcement BrownEyedTigre posted :

"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."

Mad,
So it is a complete reboot and the previous games are no longer a valid part of the storyline of the first three? That doesn't sound like a good idea to me.

Well, it could still be a good game - with a similar theme - even if it isn't exactly the same format think

I think I'll be giving it a go, anyway smile

Unless, of course, I hear something really detrimental about it before it gets released !! lol

The story line can be found here.

This may answer some questions:

Quote:
About Black Mirror
Like in the original graphic adventure trilogy, the Gothic Horror genre and its unique atmosphere of madness and psychological distress remains at the heart of Black Mirror.

The point-and-click gameplay of the original trilogy served as the basis for the re-imagined gameplay, which focuses on close-up investigation and interaction with nightmarish visions that plague the protagonist of the game David Gordon.

Key Features
• A modern re-imagining of the acclaimed gothic-horror adventure series
• Interactions with vision-like apparitions which help you learn more about the past of your family
• Eerie atmosphere focusing on the horrors of the mind, in the style of EA Poe and HP Lovecraft
• High quality voice acting from a compelling ensemble cast
