Eight friends. A remote mountain getaway. What could possibly go wrong?
Supermassive Games’ Until Dawn has been in development for years, but we haven’t seen much about the horror game since 2012. Now a PS4 exclusive, Until Dawn is set for a 2015 release, with a new trailer premiering tonight at The Game Awards.
Here’s how Supermassive’s website describes Until Dawn:
In an unpredictable and dynamically adaptive story, crafted in consultation with Until Dawn scriptwriters and indie horror auteurs Larry Fessenden and Graham Reznick, eight friends come together at a remote mountain getaway and embark upon a night of unexpected terror. Through the course of the night, anyone can live, anyone can die, and things aren’t always what they seem. Twists and turns will keep you guessing right to the end as you play each of the friends. The decisions you make on their behalf will determine who survives Until Dawn.
I previewed Until Dawn at New York Comic Con 2012 and liked what I saw, but that was back when the game was a PlayStation Move-using PS3 title. Since then, it’s seemingly disappeared from news and press events, but as we’ve seen tonight, Until Dawn is alive, well, and ready to hit the PS4 next year.
