THQ Nordic announced today that it's bringing back the Black Mirror adventure-game franchise with an all-new entry. The game, developed by King Art Games, is set for a late November release.

While it shares a name with Charlie Brooker's BBC techno-horror TV series, the Black Mirror games debuted in 2004, seven years before the show. The new entry shifts away from the original games' point-and-click roots, offering direct control of the characters. In addition, players will be able to interact with horrific "vision-like apparitions," according to THQ Nordic.

The trailer below offers a glimpse of the tone that the developers are shooting for, even if it doesn't offer much in the way of context or a shred of gameplay.

We'll learn more about the game next week, when THQ Nordic shows off a playable build at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany. Stay tuned.

Black Mirror is set for a November 28 release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
