Until Dawn is a survivor horror adventure game developed by Supermassive Games and published by Sony Computer Entertainment for the Playstation 4. Until Dawn was originally going to be a Playstation 3 release with Playstation Move compatability, but an announcement in August 2014 stated that it would be a Playstation 4 exclusive.
Until Dawn was originally announced for the PlayStation 3 and had the intent of utilizing Sony’s PlayStation Move controller. Set in a first-person perspective, the PlayStation Move controlled the player’s flashlight and a torch would be used to switch between the eight playable characters.
When eight friends become trapped on a remote mountain getaway gone wrong, things quickly turn sinister and they start to suspect they aren’t alone. Every choice the player makes while playing as each of the eight friends – even the seemingly trivial ones – will carve out a unique story. The player’s actions alone determine who survives until dawn.
The gameplay of Until Dawn focuses on quick time events, and discovering clues. A system is added to keep progress of all the secrets you find, which can help you piece things together. It’s been noted to be similar to Heavy Rain. The player can take control of each of the eight characters, and can make simple choices which will effect the way the game plays out, resulting in deaths or other mayhem. There are over thousands of different endings possible in the game.
