It’s been a while since we’ve seen anything of Until Dawn, one of Sony’s long worked on PlayStation exclusives. Originally unveiled at gamescom 2012, the game was intended to be a fully PlayStation Move controlled title but we all know how those things ended up.
Developers Supermassive Games have said that they have now completely reworked the game using an updated version of the Killzone Shadow Fall engine, this will allow the Until Dawn to play on the PlayStation 4 and make full use of the console’s DualShock 4 controller:
“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,” said the firm’s Pete Samuels. “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.”
This PlayStation exclusive apparently follows a group of 8 teenagers as they spend the night in a log cabin during the anniversary of one of their friends death. But this groups are unaware of the horrors that face then as they are being hunted by a crazed serial killer.
Horror authors Larry Fessenden and Graham Reznick (Stake Land, The Last Winter) worked with the team on the story, which challenges the player with unraveling the mystery of Blackwood Pines.
Hayden Panettiere (Heroes, Nashville), Rami Malek (The Pacific, Need for Speed) and Brett Dalton (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) will provide their voices in the game.
No release date has been announced for Until Dawn yet but it is expected to come to both PlayStation 3 & PlayStation 4 via the PSN Store.
