Hi, my name is Will Byles and I’m the Executive Creative Director for Until Dawn over at Supermassive Games. We’re very excited to finally lift the lid on Until Dawn, our new PlayStation 3 title, developed exclusively for PlayStation Move!
To give you a sneak peek at what’s in store, check out our announcement trailer…
So, what did you think? We’ve been working on this game for a while now, working with Hollywood writers and US TV talent, doing our best to bring the a new horror experience to the PlayStation Move. Inspired by classic movies like Friday the 13th, Halloween, and SCREAM, we expect that Until Dawn will draw you in with its characters, chilling setting and shocking, twisted story.
On the anniversary of their friends’ disappearance, a group of classmates visit the site of the mystery to bury their ghosts and get some closure. Little do they know, they’ll end up burying each other instead…
Just like in classic horror films it’s isolated, the power’s out and the phones don’t work! You’ll play through the story as multiple characters, sometimes with a friend and sometimes on your own to discover who it is that’s intent on killing off you and your friends. It’s up to you how you play, so we don’t know how your story will go or who’ll be there with you at the end.
To play the game you’ll use the PS Move controller in a totally natural way. It’ll act as your flashlight, guiding your way through the darkness, or when you want to use something the controller will intuitively map your actions in the real world to those of your character’s hand in the game world.
We really hope you’re as psyched about Until Dawn as we are, coming next year exclusively to PlayStation 3. Get ready to be scared.
