Replace 01/02/24: One thing not clear within the announcement trailer, however revealed in a PS Blog post is that that is really a full remake of Until Dawn by Ballistic Moon. The studio is utilizing Unreal Engine 5 for the remake, versus the Decima engine of the unique, and making a collection of updates to the gameplay and narrative.
The brand new model of Until Dawn will now have a 3rd individual digicam, as a substitute of mounted digicam angles, and is shifting the story to be “more nuanced and emotional” and increase on “unexplored emotional parts”, which appears like a step away from the unique’s schlocky teen horror vibes. There may even be new places, enhanced previous ones and new interactions all through.
They’re even redoing the soundtrack, changing Jason Graves unique rating with a brand new soundtrack by Mark Korven.
The unique story continues.
Initially launched in 2015, Until Dawn actually put Supermassive Video games on the map as a horror recreation developer, and noticed them then delve deeper and deeper down the rabbit gap of increasingly more narrative horror by means of The Darkish Footage Anthology collection, The Quarry and extra.
However everybody at all times calls again to their first hit, and with good purpose.
In our original review of Until Dawn in 2015, Jim stated, “With its immersive world, branching narrative, and lifelike character work, Until Dawn will have players on the edge of their seats while pounding them with jump scares and a bone-chilling soundtrack. Having previously worked on ports and smaller titles for Sony, Supermassive Games have shown that they can play with the big boys and we can’t wait to see what they come up with next.”
The one factor I ponder is, how will the bits the place you need to maintain the controller nonetheless once you’re enjoying on mouse & keyboard?
