Until Dawn Unveiled for PS4

Pete Samuels's Avatar + Posted by Pete Samuels on Aug 12, 2014 // Supermassive Games

Hello from Supermassive Games, and — particularly — the Until Dawn team! It’s been a while since we talked about Until Dawn, but we’re now thrilled to reveal the latest on the game… and it’s now for PS4. So lock your doors, turn off the lights and let’s explore some of the realistically gruesome details…

In Until Dawn you play the parts of all eight friends as they gather at a remote mountain getaway for a night of unexpected terror.

Until Dawn for PS4

We 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 while we test your limits of fear but remember, things aren’t always as they seem!

Whichever way you choose to play it’s a rollercoaster of emotion and fear and, to support the authenticity of your characters, we’ve 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.

At Gamescom two years ago Until Dawn was announced for PS Move, on PlayStation 3. We got some awesome feedback at the time and many of you have managed to maintain your excitement over the two years of silence (thanks for that!). We were also overwhelmed by the amount of you that let us know you wanted to play the game with regular DualShock controls, so we took a step back and considered how to make this change. At around that time we started to learn more about PlayStation 4 and the DualShock 4 and so made the decision to make Until Dawn next gen.

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.

We’re also using an updated version of the Killzone Shadow Fall engine, leveraging its great visual power together with some amazing, cutting-edge facial animation, lighting and audio techniques to give compelling character performances in our creepy and realistic environments.

We’ll be sharing more about the game over the coming week at Gamescom, and some interesting facts on the making of Until Dawn in the coming months, but in the meantime we hope you’re excited about Until Dawn coming to PS4. We’ll speak again soon…

The move (no pun intended) away from Move is a smart one. Looks good so far!

Guerrilla are involved in project dev or not? I hope they are doing a new IP that rockZ!

Add this to the top of my most anticipated 2015 games!

When this comes out I might end up staying up until dawn playing it.

Remember Hayden Panettiere? From Kingdom Hearts and Ally McBeal.

Based on how the game was described on stage, it sounds like this game has choice and consequence? Is this true? I hope so! ^_^

Game looks interesting for sure. Will keep my eye on it.

Thank you for moving from first person to third person. Takes the game off my ‘not interested’ list and onto my ‘keep an eye on this’ list.

Looks like another movie game instead of survival horror. Pass. At least there is Bloodborne.

was really looking forward to the Move controls, but maybe they don’t make sense in a third person game?

I like the tonal shift toward being a little more serious/adult. Are there any GLBT characters?

will there be co-op play like ObsCure had?

Does it still use PS Move at all?

Looked great 2 years ago and looks great now! I love a good horror / story heavy game. Is this still going to support the MOVE too or just the DualShock 4?

Dear Pete

Is there any chance to see this game on Vita? Please bring it to Vita.
I assure you many Vita’s owners would purchase it at once.

Did I hear right at the beginning of the conference that all the games are slated to come out in the first 6 months of 2015? And if so, does that include this one?

Kidgreengene:

I just rewatched that part of the show, and it’s left a bit ambiguous. It’s not clear if he meant all of the games from their entire conference or just the ones during the segment that this specific line was spoken, but one thing is clear: he said the next six months, not the first six months of 2015. That means they’ll be out before next March, which is still quite a few games, even if it wasn’t everything they showed.

LOOKS AMAZE…..some questions….

1. Coming to PS VITA also? This would be a landmark title for Vita.

2. So you play as all 8 characters? That means it’s multi-player or you just control all 8 from a single-player perspective?

Thanks!!

I must say that this news made me angry. I bought a PS Move just to play Until Dawn and now the game isn’t going to be released for PS3. I’m very disappointed.

Interesting. Let’s wait for the trailer.

Dang it! Was looking forward to MOVE support. Using it as a flashlight/candle would’ve been awesome. Still excited, i’m hoping for multiple endings and some replay value. My .02

I’m looking forward to hearing and seeing more of this one! My wife and I enjoy Hayden on Nashville, so I’m excited she has a role in this game. It’s looking really interesting so far!

Looked decent….so this is that same Until Dawn once announced for PS3?…..I thought that game was released already but judging by people comments it wasn’t……so you guys decided to switch to PS4…..shame this is a damn shame.

Will the blond chick from the original until dawn trailer be joining the cast?

Just like Killzone Shadow Fall, the movement of the AIs are a bit sketchy, but I’m sure you can improve that and make it better and more fluid.
I love the way that every decision has an impact on the overall game. I hope this has Morpheus support.
Glad that it play with DS4 controls. PS Move in games like Jurrasik Park or Heavy Rain style really aren’t my thing.
But, I still see much potential for PS Move in future game releases.

Wait, so to make sure I have this straight:

1) This will no longer be coming to PS3?

2) It won’t use the move at all? I know it will take extra work to add move controls, but that was one of the reasons I was looking forward to this game.
