The Quarry follows a group of nine teenage counselors stranded at Hackett's Quarry on the last day of summer camp. Featuring an ensemble of Hollywood stars and horror legends, including David Arquette ("Scream" franchise), Ariel Winter ("Modern Family"), Justice Smith ("Jurassic World"), Brenda Song ("Dollface"), Lance Henriksen ("Aliens"), Lin Shaye ("Insidious" franchise), Ted Raimi ("Creepshow") and more, players play as each of the nine camp counselors in a thrilling cinematic tale, where every decision shapes their unique story from a tangled web of possibilities. Any character can be the star of the show - or die before daylight comes.
“The team at Supermassive Games have once again raised the bar for the interactive narrative genre,” said David Ismailer, President at 2K. “With an incredible cast and nail-biting story, it’s been fantastic to partner with them to bring fans what’s sure to be one of the most engrossing summer teen horror thrill rides of the summer.” In addition to today's launch of The Quarry, a free playable trial of the game is now available across all platforms. The trial features the Prologue of The Quarry, which sets the stage for the harrowing events that follow in the game and give players a taste of what's in store for the full game.
The Quarry offers players a series of engaging features including:
• Your Story, Their Fate. Will you dare to check what's behind that trap door? Will you investigate the screams echoing from within the forest? Will you save your friends or desperately run for your life? Every choice, big or small, shapes your story and determines who lives to tell the tale;
• A Stunning Cinematic Experience. Cutting-edge facial capture and filmic lighting techniques, combined with incredible performances from an iconic ensemble cast of Hollywood talent, bring the horrors of Hackett’s Quarry to life in a pulse-pounding, cinematic thrill ride;
• Enjoy the Fright With Friends. Place your faith in up to seven friends in online play*, where invited players watch along and vote on key decisions, creating a story shaped by the whole group! Or, play together in a party horror couch co-op experience where each player picks a counselor and controls their actions;
• Customize Your Experience. Adjustable difficulty for all gameplay elements let players of any skill level enjoy the horror. And if you prefer to watch rather than play, Movie Mode lets you 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!
“It's been almost seven years since we released our last teen-horror game, and we've challenged ourselves to advance interactive storytelling and take full advantage of technological leaps with The Quarry," said Will Byles, Director at Supermassive Games. "The Quarry offers you the chance to see what choices you would make when encountered with the unthinkable and unimaginable. I can't wait to see what stories you create!"
