As we correctly predicted, Sony officially revealed Until Dawn during its GamesCom 2012 press conference earlier today. The Supermassive Games developed PlayStation Move exclusive follows a group of high school classmates as they revisit a campsite to mark the first anniversary of their friends’ disappearance. As you might imagine, not everything goes according to plan.
“It’s teen horror so obviously it’s isolated, the power’s out and the phones don’t work,” explained creative director Will Bytes. “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.”
The game promises to use the PlayStation Move controller in a “totally natural way”, allowing you to direct the beam of your flashlight and interact with objects intuitively. It’s due out next year for PS3.
