News Until Dawn PS4 Improvements Are Unfortunately Wishful Thinking

News This Is What Until Dawn Looked Like on the PS3
Some of you will remember, but for those who don't, Supermassive Games' schlocky horror Until Dawn was originally in development for the PlayStation 3 – and, primarily, the PlayStation Move motion controller. It was planned to be an exclusive for Sony's illuminating wand, with the gameplay built around the 3D tracking of the...
News Is an Until Dawn Sequel Unlikely Now?
Supermassive Games eyeing multiformat move
We'd always assumed, following the surprise commercial success of Until Dawn, that Sony would have signed up a sequel straight away – but it sounds like developer Supermassive Games has other plans. Despite being one of the Japanese giant's closer partners, the developer has expressed interest in breaking...
News Until Dawn's Free Hallowe'en PS4 Theme Is Worth Downloading
It's been a disappointing week for Until Dawn fans. Supermassive Games announced a woeful looking rails shooter spin-off earlier in the week, while Sony's second marketing push has amounted to a new trailer and a free PlayStation 4 theme. There is, at least, one silver lining, though: the animated wallpaper is one of the better ones...
Rumour Until Dawn Goes On-Rails for PlayStation VR DLC
More like off the rails, right?
Until Dawn is one of the best games of the year because of its intentionally crumby plot and ham acting – so we're not sure how we feel about the game getting a PlayStation VR powered side story. Apparently that's exactly what Supermassive Games is working on, though, as a Destructoid tip-off has hinted that a...
News Sony Admits PS4 Exclusive Until Dawn Was a Sleeper Hit
There's a bit of revisionist history going on with Until Dawn at the moment.

As such, armchair analysts believe that the platform holder missed a trick...

News Japan's Censored Until Dawn's Most Grisly Scenes in the Worst Way
Fade to black
Until Dawn doesn't go totally SAW, but it does have a little fun with a saw blade at one point. Sadly, those playing the slasher in Japan will not get to see all of the gore, as the game has been censored in arguably the worst way imaginable. In the sequence involving entrails and other viscera, the Eastern version simply cuts to...
News Sony's Stopping Twitch Streamers from Archiving Until Dawn
We're not entirely sure how we feel about this one.

News Scream Like You Mean It with Until Dawn's Launch Trailer
The shock success of Until Dawn appears to have taken even Sony by surprise, as it scrambles to put out trailers and prepare bundles for what's turned out one of the better exclusives on the PlayStation 4.

Gamescom 2015 Cause and Effect Is at the Crux of This Until Dawn Trailer
Like a butterfly
The butterfly effect is a funny thing. Earlier in the year, Sony executives sat in an office and decided to skip Gamescom 2015, blissfully unaware of the fact that we'd be subjected to a busy but still boring week. Until Dawn deals with these decisions in a different way, as you're pursued by a serial killer who looks like the star...

First Impressions PS4 Teen Horror Until Dawn Is So Bad That It's Scarily Good
David Cage makes games that aren’t supposed to be funny, but sometimes wander into the realm of comedy anyway.

News Something's Coming in Sony's Second Gamescom 2014 Teaser of the Day
An axe to grind
Sony’s in full on hype mode ahead of its Gamescom 2014 press conference next week – it’s just a shame that it’s releasing some pretty poor promotional trailers to lead into the event. Alright, this one isn’t anywhere near as bad as this afternoon’s hypnotherapy session, but two teasers in one day is probably a little bit...
News Snow Joke! Sony Seemingly Teases Until Dawn PS4 Re-Reveal for GamesCom

News Supermassive Games Keeping PS Move Title Until Dawn Alive
Not dead yet
Do you remember Until Dawn? The intriguing PlayStation Move teen horror title was announced at GamesCom a couple of years back, but has remained as tightly concealed as a cheerleader’s dressing room in the months since.

Rumour Has Until Dawn Severed Its PlayStation Move Requirement?
Motion controlled adventure may have added DualShock 3 support
