Supermassive Games’ PSVR prequel to Until Dawn has been delayed until January 23, 2018. The developer revealed that The Inpatient will be missing its original launch date in order to “ensure the [developers] have the time they need to make [The Inpatient] as enjoyable for players as possible.” If you ask me, that’s always a perfect excuse.
The Inpatient is set decades before the events of Until Dawn at the Blackwood Sanatorium in the 1950s. Knowing what we know about Until Dawn, the sanatorium had to shut down during this time period due to the results of dangerous experimentation on its patients. The special properties of the mountains in which the facility is located fueled these experiments. If you’ve played Until Dawn, you know nothing pretty can be expected of the events of The Inpatient. This makes the premise all the more enticing.
