When eight friends are trapped on a remote mountain retreat and things quickly turn sinister, they start to suspect they aren’t alone.
A completely reactive Story
Until Dawn follows a group of 8 teenagers as they spend the night in a log cabin on the anniversary of the death of one of their friends, unaware that they are being watched.
Gripped by fear and with tensions in the group running high, you’ll be forced to make snap decisions that could mean life, or death... for everyone involved.
Every choice you make in your terrifying search for answers even the seemingly trivial ones will carve out your own unique story.
With spine-tingling performances from a Hollywood cast including Hayden Panettiere (Heroes, Nashville) brought to life with the next gen power of the PS4 your actions alone will decide who survives Until Dawn!
The concept of gameplay
In an unpredictable and dynamically adaptive story, crafted in consultation with Until Dawn scriptwriters and indie horror auteurs Larry Fessenden and Graham Reznick, eight friends come together at a remote mountain getaway and embark upon a night of unexpected terror.
Through the course of the night, anyone can live, anyone can die, and things aren't always what they seem. Twists and turns will keep you guessing right to the end as you play each of the friends. The decisions you make on their behalf will determine who survives.
With innovative choice mechanics and the Butterfly Effect interface, players can clearly see the path of their story amid the thousands that are possible. Seemingly insignificant choices as well as huge moral dilemmas that will question your sense of fairness, good and evil, can have major unforeseen consequences.
Using the next gen capabilities of the PS4, specifically the rendering capability of the 'Killzone Shadowfall Engine', together with 'Supermassive Games' major enhancements in lighting, camera, and animation systems, Until Dawn brings emotional and credible performances of a talented Hollywood cast to life in its realistically terrifying environments.
Choice & Consequence – Make the impossible choices, where every decision in your terrifying search for answers could mean the difference between life and death, but for who?
Next-Gen Horror – Harnessing the power of an evolved Killzone™ Shadow Fall engine, Until Dawn will shock you with realistic graphics and terrify you with edge-of-your-seat gameplay.
Butterfly Effect – Carve your path to survival with branching story lines that promise no two experiences will be the same. The choices you make may ripple unseen into moments of grave peril, or they may very well save a life.
Gripping Story – Immerse yourself in a truly spine-tingling story written in collaboration with famed cult writer/directors Larry Fessenden & Graham Reznick.
Supermassive Games explains:
Supermassive Games wrote the story in collaboration with horror auteurs Larry Fessenden and Graham Reznick (Stake Land, Habit, The Last Winter) who’ve been bringing great independent horror movies to the big and small screen for decades. That story challenges you to unravel the terrifying mysteries of Blackwood Pines. Look out for clues whilst your emotions are torn limb from limb but remember, things aren’t always as they seem!
Whichever way you choose to play - it’s a roller coaster of emotion and fear and, to support the authenticity of your characters, Until Dawn has been lucky enough to work with an outstanding and talented cast including Hayden Panettiere (Golden Globe-nominee from Heroes and Nashville), Rami Malek (Night at the Museum, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, Need for Speed) and Brett Dalton (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.). Their incredible performances will connect you to your characters on a meaningful emotional level.
Originally written for release on PS3 2 years ago Until Dawn has undergone some major changes.
Shoot over to the link in bold below for the latest teaser trailers for this horror epic!
"We re-designed, re-built and re-wrote the game so now you have a more mature, darker and fundamentally more terrifying experience on PS4.
One of the first changes you’ll notice, apart from how much more beautiful it now looks and sounds, is that we’ve moved from first person to third person perspective. This allows a much more cinematic experience for you, so you feel completely immersed in this beautiful but spine-chilling world."
