It’s arguably one of the best examples of the branching narrative genre, and with a movie around the corner, Until Dawn is getting freshened up for PS5 and PC later this year. Ballistic Moon is handling development, as opposed to original creator Supermassive Games, with the title being completely recreated in Unreal Engine 5.
“Until Dawn has been rebuilt with the latest tools and techniques,” creative director Neil McEwan explained on the PS Blog. “New and improved animations build on the success of the original character performances. Characters, environments and VFX have been upgraded – all for a truly enhanced cinematic horror experience.”
Interestingly, the title will now have a third-person camera, allowing you to see the story from new perspectives. The original game obviously used fixed camera positions to frame the action, so that’s a pretty seismic change. The upgraded version will also feature an entirely new score, composed by horror veteran Mark Korven.
There’s no release date just yet, but more information is expected later in the year. For now, you can check out the trailer embedded above.
