Pre-orders and the official release date for Nancy Drew: Midnight in Salem has been pushed out, but, only by two weeks. Read our official letter here and re-mark your calendars for October 15th to pre-order and December 3rd to release date.
Creating a new game on a new engine with a new user interface, a new inventory, new animations, new puzzles, new navigation and more, this delay makes the most sense from our standing. MID is looking terrific, but there are a lot of things to polish and perfect to ensure a great playing experience. We don’t want the game crashing, or broken logic leaving you wondering what to do, or characters to say something that you haven’t asked them about yet, and we want you to be able to finish the game without getting blocked from accomplishing the next task on your task list.
We do apologize for the extended wait, but I can honestly say this one is the one that is worth it.
Here are a few quick FAQs:
- Pre-ordering will open at 11:00am PT on October 15th, 2019
- There will be a PC digital download, Mac digital download, and PC physical copy to choose from
- If you pre-order a digital copy, you may download your game on December 3rd, 2019
- If you pre-order a physical copy, we will ship them out on December 3rd in the order that people placed the orders
- There is no BONUS Edition for Midnight in Salem
- Physical copies for this game will ONLY be available at herinteractive.com, it will not be in retail stores like Target, Best Buy, or Walmart
- There is a limited run of 10,000 physical copies total, and once they are gone, no more will be made
- All Nancy Drew: Midnight in Salem games purchased at herinteractive.com will receive a free digital strategy guide
- We will not need 4 years to build the new games after MID, it will be sooner. 😉
- We will have a big prize pack – which can be won by a randomly selected winner from everyone who pre-orders – stay tuned for details!
We still have some 3D environments and more 3D characters to show off in the coming weeks! Also, please enjoy this bonus teaser trailer! (We will have a bigger, official trailer later!)
Note: the part with the line “I don’t know how to explain it, but I saw something,” is the new voice of Nancy, which was the same voice actress at the end of Sea of Darkness where it teases MID “Join me in my next adventure.”
