Until Dawn Revealed For PlayStation 3

Hi, my name is Will Byles and I’m the Executive Creative Director for Until Dawn over at Supermassive Games. We’re very excited to finally lift the lid on our new PlayStation 3 title, developed exclusively for PlayStation Move!

To give you a sneak peek at what’s in store, check out our announcement trailer below.

So, what did you think? We’ve been working on this game for a while now, collaborating with Hollywood writers and US TV talent, doing our best to bring the teen horror experience to PlayStation. Inspired by classic movies in the genre, we expect that Until Dawn will draw you in with its characters, killer dialogue and shocking, twisted story.

So, what’s it all about? On the anniversary of their friends’ disappearance, a group of classmates visit the site of the mystery to lay their ghosts to rest and get some closure. Little do they know, they’ll end up burying each other instead.

It’s teen horror so obviously it’s isolated, the power’s out and the phones don’t work! You’ll play through the story as multiple characters, sometimes with a friend and sometimes on your own, to discover who it is that’s intent on killing off you and your friends. It’s up to you how you play, so we don’t know how your story will go or who’ll be there with you at the end.

To play the game you’ll use the PS Move controller in a totally natural way. It’ll act as your torch, guiding your way through the darkness. Additionally, when you want to use an item, the controller will intuitively map your actions in the real world to those of your character’s hand in the game world.

We really hope you’re as psyched about Until Dawn as we are, coming next year exclusively to PlayStation 3. Get ready to be scared!

Did you enjoy this?

Is it non move compatible too?


Looks fun but the PS Move controller did noting for Heavy Rain so can this be played without the gadget or is it a collection of minigames rapped in a nice package?

What are you talking about? The Move version of Heavy Rain felt so much more intuitive and immersive than the regular version. Have you even tried both versions? I have and it’s MUCH better with the Move controller.

This game looks interesting, I’m not so much into horror games, but it looks like one of the few Move exclusive games, which are actually being put some thought and good work into. I hope there will be a demo, so I can see for myself, what the game feels like with Move controls.


support for 3D?


if its move only, ill pass

Haven’t played many survival horror games to be honest, but this looks extremely intriguing. I’ve been waiting for a highly engaging Move game that doesn’t feel too gimmicky, and this looks like it has more potential than most titles.

I’ll be interested to see how the Move control system works though. I hope it will somehow use the kind of immersion that Datura tried to utilise. That kind of system would work brilliantly as a horror game.

    Thanks for the comment, Toxic.

    Immersion’s exactly what we’re going for with Until Dawn, and you’ll be using the Move in a natural, intuitive way throughout. A lot of it’s about interacting with the game world in exactly the way you’d expect to in real life.


I hope it’ll support ds3, otherwise pass.

This looks really interesting, seems like a natural fit for the Move.

How about a Dual Shock 3 Support?
