Welcome to Until Dawn: Rush of Blood; this will be the best -- or do I mean last? -- ride of your life! Hit horror studio Supermassive Games took the gaming world by storm earlier this year with their horror smash Until Dawn.
Until Dawn is a wonderfully stereotypical representation of the teen slasher generation. It follows a group of eight teenagers as they spend the night in a log cabin in the woods, in the middle of nowhere. What could possibly go wrong?
All seems well within the cabin -- the booze and hormones are flowing as the teens make themselves comfortable. They laugh and reminisce about a late friend blissfully unaware that they are now being watched. If you haven't played it yet, then do it now!
Rush of Blood, Though...
Until Dawn: Rush of Blood, however, is an entirely new, and very different monster. Revealed today at Sony's Paris Games Week (PAX), Supermassive Games announced that they will be taking Until Dawn into the next gen realm of virtual reality. It's behind you... No really, it will literally be behind you!
The announcement was brief but boy did it ruffle some feathers. According to Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida, Until Dawn: Rush of Blood will be set on a horror roller coaster. That's right -- it's gonna be a haunted house type situation.
I think this sounds fantastic! And it conjured up so many memories of being a kid, riding through the local fair's haunted house roller coaster. The feeling of being locked into your seat, with no way to escape was nightmarish.
The new game will be exclusive to PlayStation, working off their highly anticipated project Morpheus (VR headset). We reckon that Sony's VR package will be available for purchase come mid-2016.
Supermassive Games have promised that it will still look, feel and sound like their original Until Dawn title. The butterfly effect system they utilized so well, will still play a major role in the game.
There is certainly more to come from this title as time goes by -- make sure you stay tuned to us. Trust me you do not want to miss this game!
