Sony Debuts New Trailer for Horror Game “UNTIL DAWN”

Initially announced in 2012 as a slasher-centric, 80s horror-esque experience for the PS3, UNTIL DAWN is reemerging as a PS4 title in 2015 with new, bold trailer in tow for GamesCom 2014. 

UPDATE: The official synopsis and first cast announcement (Hayden Panettiere) have been revealed via developer Supermassive’s site. Find the full plot and game rundown, as well as the initial post and trailer below.

When eight friends are trapped on a remote mountain retreat and things quickly turn sinister, they start to suspect they aren’t alone. Gripped by fear and with tensions in the group running high, you’ll be forced to make snap decisions that could mean life, or death, for everyone involved.

Every choice you make in your terrifying search for answers – even the seemingly trivial ones – will carve out your own unique story.

With spine-tingling performances from a Hollywood cast including Hayden Panettiere (Heroes, Nashville) brought to life with the power of PlayStation®4 – your actions alone will decide who survives Until Dawn.

Until Dawn™ is coming exclusively to PlayStation®4 in 2015.

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.

With innovative choice mechanics and the Butterfly-Effect Interface, players can clearly see the path of their story amid the thousands that are possible. Seemingly insignificant choices as well as huge moral dilemmas that will question your sense of fairness, good and evil, can have major unforeseen consequences.

Using the power of the PlayStation®4 and the superior rendering capability of the Killzone™ Shadowfall Engine, together with our own major enhancements in lighting, camera, and animation systems, Until Dawn brings emotional and credible performances of a talented Hollywood cast to life in its realistically terrifying environments.

More official information is to come, but UNTIL DAWN seems focused on an old school vibe, revolving around an annual snowy lodge getaway among friends and the horror that befalls them there. Acclaimed indie horror filmmakers Larry Fessenden and Graham Reznick penned the game, which was created and developed by Supermassive.
