Until Dawn is a PS4-exclusive survival horror adventure game in the interactive drama style. Players follow a group of eight friends on a trip to a remote mountain cabin when they find themselves stranded there, and experiencing sinister events. Fear and tension runs amok as the eight search for clues to discover the killer’s identity and make it out of their perilous situation in one piece. The game features a Hollywood cast, including Hayden Panettiere and involves indie horror creators Larry Fessenden and Graham Reznick.
The game is notably based on what is called the “Butterfly Effect” system, which means that a choice made can have unforeseen consequences later in the game. Over the course of the game, players are forced to make numerous such choices and decisions based on moral or ethical dilemmas. For instance, players may choose to save one character by sacrificing another. There are no right or wrong decisions in Until Dawn, as the range of possibilities stretches from having all eight characters survive to all eight characters dying. Reloading previous save files is also made impossible by the game’s strict auto-saving system. Due to this considerable variation in story and the numerous possibilities that can arise from it, the game is not meant to be experienced just once, but multiple times, as it is impossible to see all of the content in a single playthrough. An in-game system allows players to keep track of all the clues discovered in Blackwood, even across multiple playthroughs.
The game additionally features integration with the PlayStation Camera: if the players choose to enable it, the game will automatically take video of the player at certain moments in the game, with the video being stored in the console and view-able at any time. Players can also choose to share the video on social media using the PlayStation 4 share functionality.
