Not to be confused with the formerly Channel 4 and currently NetFlix title, Black Mirror is a classic horror video game franchise in its own right. A new version from THQ Nordic is now on the calendar for a November 28 release. Even those who are unfamiliar with the franchise will be able to jump in and and start playing since the new game is a reboot of the 2003 original. In fact, even those who have played the original can play this game again since it is completely re-written and has an independent story.
