Until Dawn Is Leveraging the Killzone Engine
Posted by Sammy Barker
Sony’s stunning Killzone franchise has always had a foreboding visual undertone to it, so it’s not particularly surprising to learn that Supermassive Games’ upcoming PlayStation Move exclusive teen horror title Until Dawn is being built on top of the first-person shooter’s incredible technology.
Speaking during the latest episode of the PlayStation Blogcast, Sony’s Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida cited the motion controlled adventure as one of his most anticipated first-party titles: “Ever since we announced the [PlayStation Move], many teams have been working on different concepts – but this title is really, really advanced,” he said. “It’s very creepy. In fact, the game actually runs on the Killzone engine.”
The affable executive added: “The developer borrowed the technology from Guerrilla, who gave technical assistance. But the team did a really good job of taking advantage of the engine to create the game's very moody atmosphere. It’s so important for that kind of genre.”
We’ve been longing for a PlayStation Move-powered horror title ever since the device was first announced, and Until Dawn keeps hitting the right notes as far as we're concerned. We can’t wait for the game to release next year.
