Until Dawn or How to Play a Horror Movie on PlayStation 4 – PSX 2014
During the PlayStation Experience 2014 event we got the chance to watch a few minutes of gameplay for Until Dawn, a survival horror video game create by Supermassive Games for PlayStation 4. The game was intially announced as a PS3 title with PS Move support in the past, but this summer Until Dawn was reintroduced to the audience as a PS4 exclusive.
The game seems to be similar to a B-rated horror movie, in which teenagers are targeted by some serial killers during their holiday.
“Eight friends trapped together on a remote mountain retreat, and they aren’t alone. Gripped by dread, with tensions running high, they must fight through their fear if they all hope to make through the night in one piece. Play as each of the eight characters and experience fear like you never have before. Every decision you make in your terrifying search for answers could mean the difference between life and death, but for whom? Your actions alone will decide who survives Until Dawn.” says the description of the title.
Until Dawn is created around four essential pylons:
- Choice & Consequence – Make the impossible choices, where every decision in your terrifying search for answers could mean the difference between life and death, but for who?
- Next-Gen Horror – Harnessing the power of an evolved Killzone™ Shadow Fall engine, Until Dawn will shock you with realistic graphics and terrify you edge-of-your seat gameplay.
- Butterfly Effect – Carve your path to survival with branching story lines that promise no two experiences will be the same. The choices you make may ripple unseen into moments of grave peril, or they may very well save a life.
- Gripping Story – Immerse yourself in a truly spine-tingling story written in collaboration with famed cult writer/directors Larry Fessenden & Graham Reznick.
