As promised, Supermassive Games revealed the full trailer for its upcoming and newly announced horror game The Quarry. The trailer showed its extensive list of known actors as well as its release date, which is June 10, 2022 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. It’ll be $69.99 on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S and $59.99 on the other platforms.

The trailer sets up a bunch of teenage counselors at Hackett’s Quarry, a place that doesn’t seem unlike Friday the 13th‘s Camp Crystal Lake. After the car fails to start on the final day, panic sets in as “blood-drenched locals and something far more sinister” begin hunting the pack.

The Quarry seems to be calling back to Supermassive’s Until Dawn, as it appears to be a much more ambitious project than its string of Dark Pictures games. This also translates to the multiplayer as it supports up to eight players that all can sway the narrative and live or die based on their decisions, which this game is also focused on. There are also many difficulty elements to appeal to people with different levels of skill, which Supermassive has been implementing more and more with each Dark Pictures title. There’s also even a Movie Mode that seems to turn the game into a glorified film. It’s unclear how exactly it’ll work, but users can choose how they want the story to play out and then “kick back and munch on some popcorn.”

There’s also a handful of recognizable faces. Supermassive tends to generally grab a few known stars for its games, but The Quarry has more than one or two faces that players might recognize. The current cast list is:

  • David Arquette as Chris
  • Ariel Winter as Abigail
  • Brenda Song as Kaitlyn
  • Evan Evagora as Nick
  • Halston Sage as Emma
  • Justice Smith as Ryan
  • Miles Robbins as Dylan
  • Siobhan Williams as Laura
  • Skyler Gisondo as Max
  • Zach Tinker as Jacob
  • Ethan Suplee as Bobby
  • Grace Zabriskie as Eliza
  • Lance Henriksen as Jedediah
  • Lin Shaye as Constance
  • Ted Raimi as Travis

There is also a deluxe edition, which is $10 more, and it comes with ’80s-themed character outfits, instant access to something called the “Death Rewind” system (likely a mechanic that lets players rewind), a Gorefest Movie Mode (which sounds like it will just amp up the blood), and the Horror History Visual Filter Pack. The Horror History Visual Filter Pack will also be included for everyone that pre-orders any version and has three filters that pay homage to three types of horror: indie horror, ’80s horror, and and black and white horror.
