Parisian developer Quantic Dream may have skipped Sony’s press conference yesterday, but fortunately for fans, its style of story-driven games will live on in PlayStation 4 exclusive Until Dawn. Originally announced for the PlayStation 3, but now completely rebuilt for the Japanese giant’s next-gen machine, this title follows eight friends who take a vacation in a remote mountain location.
Naturally, as with all good slasher films, they start getting picked off one-by-one – but it’s your actions that will dictate how the story flows. Just like in Heavy Rain or The Walking Dead, you’ll need to make decisions that could ultimately change the fate of your fraternity. An example of these moments can be glimpsed in the gameplay video below.
While the character models do look great, the animations could definitely use some work, as they look a bit stilted next to titles such as The Last of Us Remastered and inFAMOUS: Second Son. Nevertheless, it’s great to see more horror titles on the PS4, as we felt that the genre was severely underrepresented last generation.
