Frank Stone

Set out to uncover the shadow of Frank Stone as we have the official reveal for The Casting Of Frank Stone

A little while back, we all caught word that Supermassive Games was working on a title set in the Dead By Daylight universe. During The Game Awards this year, Behaviour Interactive gave them the chance to show it off officially and here we go with The Casting Of Frank Stone. The next in the high-stakes horror out there and coming to the PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC in 2024. Not as a new expansion to the popular multiplayer title but as a narrative experience that will expand out the universe and let the developer stretch their legs even further with their style. All to tell us the horror story of Frank Stone and shaping other outcomes in the universe as well. Quite an ambitious thing to strive for if I do say so.

This reveal trailer for The Casting Of Frank Stone does not offer up much in the way that the game will be played but does help set the setting in the Oregon Steel Mill we will be exploring. This might sound like a bad thing, but given that Supermassive has been doing great things with their choose-your-own-adventure games out there, we can just assume the gameplay will be more like their other titles. That way we can focus better on the story and various outcomes that we will have in the game. Yes, this does mean that The Casting Of Frank Stone will have different narrative paths and other consequences for us to have to deal with along the way. This was all something that we knew from the start. Now, we just know that the story will revolve around a group of friends who are set to uncover what happened with this Mill, all of the bloody past, and maybe how it will build into something on more of a cosmic scale than we have seen before with any of their games.

Having dabbled in Dead By Daylight in the past, I was always curious about getting more of any kind of story out of the IP. Not something easy to do when you are not a fan of multiplayer games like this, but that is where I am hoping that The Casting Of Frank Stone will be stepping in. All so they can expand out the world and lore of it all in a way gamers, like myself, can have a great time while also giving those dedicated players even more of what they love. It would be fun to get a story like this for all of the original killers in DbD, but we will have to see just how well Frank Stone performs. Not to mention that the developer has many other titles in the works or announced too. So, we would not want them to get paper thin on any of these works. I will stay optimistic for it all, but will also be glad if we get this one entry and see how this Killer came to be and what else is going on in the Fog of the IP.

What do you think about The Casting Of Frank Stone as we see it all now or did you need to see the gameplay to make that opinion so far? Will this shake anything up for the multiplayer game out there or is just more of the universe-building that has been going on behind the scenes now being brought into the limelight? Could you see the development team leaving their Dark Pictures run to build stories for all of the Killers in this IP or will this be a limited thing so they can focus on each other project they already have in the fire? Give us those answers and thoughts in the comments section while keeping the discussion flowing. There should be more for The Casting Of Frank Stone in the coming weeks, and you know we will have it all here. Please keep on checking back for all of those updates and the many others we have in the works for you.
