The installments in the Dark Pictures Anthology series have usually starred at least a few recognizable faces. Given the nature of The Devil in Me‘s teaser and the lack of any names attached to it, it was difficult to tell who the familiar actors were in that upcoming entry. However, Supermassive Games has come out and stated that Oscar nominee Jessie Buckley, who was in that aforementioned trailer, would be starring in the horror, narrative-focused video game.

The game’s official Twitter account revealed the news, showing Buckey’s face in the series’ signature skull logo, which also has wires on the teeth this time around, hinting at its Saw-like inspirations. It’s also possible to see a hotel, as well as a man with an axe.

Buckley has starred in such films as The Lost Daughter, where she was nominated for Best Supporting Actress, and popular television shows like Fargo and Chernobyl. She is also in the upcoming Men, which is Ex Machina and Annihilation director Alex Garland’s next film. Buckley is playing a character named Kate Wilder in the game and will presumably be one of its many protagonists.

While the release date is still listed as “non-disclosed” on the game’s website, The Devil in Me is likely positioned to come out later in 2022 and finish the first season of the anthology. The Devil in Me is about a “documentary film crew [that] receives a mysterious invite to a replica of the ‘Murder Castle’ of H.H. Holmes, America’s first serial killer.” However, they’re being watched, which, when combined with how it promises the “most gruesome challenges,” is what gives it some major Saw vibes.

Supermassive’s next game probably will be out well before The Devil in Me, as The Quarry is set to release on June 10. This title seems to be calling back to the team’s time making Until Dawn since it is a more ambitious game with more characters and a full $60 or $70 price tag, depending on the platform. It even has more stars than the usual Supermassive title, as its cast has the likes of David Arquette, Ariel Winter, Skyler Gisondo, Justice Smith, Ted Raimi, and more.
