Supermassive Games has revealed how The Quarry multiplayer and The Quarry Movie Mode will work -- this upcoming horror game will offer up a lot of different ways to play, either solo or with friends.

The Quarry is Supermassive Games' follow-up to its interactive horror series The Dark Pictures Anthology. In many senses, it's an evolution of the gameplay we've seen with that trilogy, owing in part to its highly flexible Movie Mode that was first revealed earlier this month. Now, we've learned a lot more about what it will be capable of -- and the kinds of fun you can have with The Quarry Multiplayer.

Will Byles Explains How The Quarry Movie Mode and Accessibility Options Work

The Quarry Director Will Byles recently sat down with IGN, explaining in his own words how The Quarry Movie Mode will work thanks to its wide range of accessibility options.

"The Quarry has probably the widest range of modes, I think, that we've done," Byles explained. "We wanted to go and open this up to a much wider audience than just traditional gamers."

"We've got it, basically, so that you can turn all of [the Quick Time Events] off until you get into like, 'Film Mode,'" "[It's] basically like watching a movie." he continued.

Movie Mode offers up some interesting ways to enjoy the game as a passive experience instead. If you'd like to be a little more interactive, though, you can make use of the various accessibility options to fine-tune the gameplay -- and that can be extended to multiplayer, too.

The Quarry Multiplayer Sounds Like a Frighteningly Fun Party Game

Much like The Dark Pictures AnthologyThe Quarry multiplayer will let you play through this horror experience with your friends. What makes this experience different, however, is the addition of accessibility options that open up the game to a much wider audience.

The Quarry multiplayer can be enjoyed in two different ways, either with "Couch Play" or online co-op multiplayer. Couch Play is a sort of hotseat mode -- you'll pass the controller around to allow each player to make a decision for their respective characters, and you'll be able to adjust the accessibility options for each character.

"Each [character] can have accessibility options associated with it," Byles explained to IGN. "So if you want to play with your gran who has never played with a controller before, you can dial [her accessibility options] right down and you can dial [your accessibility options] right up."

Online co-op, however, will be a little different. A "host" player will control the game and up to seven other players will give their input on which choices should be made.

Whether you're playing by yourself or with friends (in person or otherwise), The Quarry sounds like it's going to be a fun experience for fans of horror games. You can look forward to it coming out on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox on June 10, 2022 -- for now, you can add The Quarry to your wishlist on Steam and you can learn more about the game on its official website.
