Back in August we saw a trailer for a horror movie-inspired video game starring Hayden Panettiere titled Until Dawn come out of Gamescom.
Last night at The Game Awards 2014 a new preview of the game was shown, this time offering a peek at some gameplay action. Until Dawn uses the familiar “group of kids staying at a remote cabin trying to survive a psycho killer on the prowl” horror movie recipe, but it’s your decisions that ultimately lead to who lives and who dies.
You can read more about the game and see what some of these life or death choices look like in the video below.
The game looks very similar to games like Quantic Dream’s Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls, which could be perfect for horror movie-style game if done right. Time will tell on that.
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.
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 Killzoneâ„¢ 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.
