A new chapter in the video game horror genre is coming later this year, but unlike other titles, Until Dawn seeks to make you feel for the characters that are in grave danger.
“Set at an isolated mountain lodge where nothing is as it seems, eight friends try to stay alive with a killer on the loose. Players define the relationships between the characters through dialogue and experience the night from their unique point of view. Written in collaboration with famed horror writers and directors Larry Fessenden and Graham Reznick, find out who will survive Until Dawn.”
Yep, not unlike an RPG, how you interact with those eight people will heavily influence the result of your game. So tread lightly! Also, the stories are so branching, that you could literally have a little difference between two run and end up with an entirely different ending!
This could truly be a very special kind of horror game if it all works out like it should. Too long have these titles (not unlike their movie brethren) been too focused on cheap scares instead of true horror. It appears Until Dawn will seek to change that.
Supermassive is the developer of Until Dawn, and along with the trailer below has announced that the game will release August 25th.
