Man Of Medan : Free Holiday Friend's Pass and Curator’s Cut Unlocked !

All existing owners of The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan, or those that purchase the game before 6th of January*, will gain access to a free Friend’s Pass – allowing players to experience one full playthrough of the game via Shared Story Multiplayer with one friend that does not own the game.

Time and time again, we've told you not to play Man of Medan alone. To show we're serious, we're giving away a free Friend's Pass to make sure you're not facing the ghost ship solo this holiday season.


A Friend’s Pass allows anyone who has purchased a copy of Man of Medan to invite a friend to complete a playthrough of the Shared Story mode for free. Your Friend’s Pass is a one-time use key, so be sure to invite a friend that you can count on when the chips are down.

The offer applies to PlayStation®4, Xbox and PC – and the friend must be playing on the same platform. To access the game, your friend must download the Trial version of Man of Medan first. The Friend’s Pass will be provided via a patch.


Man Of Medan


For PC players it's very easy to claim your Friend's Pass on Steam, here’s an instructional video to help you out !

If you own Man of Medan and have enabled automatic updates on Steam, you should already have a second instance of The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan installed. 

This second game will allow you to easily grab your Friend’s Pass Invite Key and will also be used to play with the invitee of your choice. If you own Man of Medan and you don’t have this second Man of Medan game, just go into your library and it should be available to install manually.



We also want to let you know that as of today, the Curator’s Cut play mode is now available for everyone who has completed at least one solo playthrough of Man of Medan! This unlock is free and it will be active forever! 

The Curator’s Cut mode will allow you to play the solo game mode with alternative scenes and perspectives that can’t be found in the basic solo game. It’s our thanks to you for supporting The Dark Pictures Anthology!

Players can download the separate DLC on their preferred store for free via the links below:
