Following the formula of B-grade teen slasher flicks like Scream, Halloween and I Know What You Did Last Summer, Until Dawn is a spooky new game coming to PlayStation 3 next year, built exclusively for the PlayStation Move motion controller as a fully explorable survival-horror experience. No rails to follow here.
Players will assume the control of a group of teenage classmates who get together for a not-so-happy anniversary and end up running for their lives across a remote mountainside during a snowstorm that has knocked the power and phone lines out. Mutilated animals that suddenly jerk to life. A masked psychopath. Oh, and there’s the classic horror sex scene, too. Sound familiar yet?
Until Dawn has a cast of US TV talent and a team of Hollywood writers behind it, including a supposed “horror legend,” so all the pieces appear to be in place for this to be a terrifyingly fun and immersive slasher romp.
