We’ve been following Until Dawn since way back in 2010, when a SCEA trademark for the game popped up online. Now, the game has been officially revealed with Supermassive Games at the helm.
A horror title, you play as 7 different characters and must play as each in turn, trying to keep them alive… until dawn. It “features all the elements you’d expect from the thriller movie genre”, and is, of course, set in a spooky cabin.
PlayStation Move controls “allow anyone to pick up and play”, and allows you to control a torch, a gun and more.
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 Teen Horror experience to PlayStation. Inspired by classic movies in the genre, we expect that Until Dawn will draw you in with its characters, killer dialogue 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…
It’s Teen Horror so obviously 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.
Coming in 2013 exclusively to PlayStation 3. Get ready to be scared!
