Until Dawn developer Supermassive Games is finally leaving the cozy confines of PlayStation, announcing a new series of adventure games in conjunction with Bandai Namco. The Dark Pictures is an anthology of cinematic horror games, each game featuring a new story with a new cast and a different setting.
Sony’s going out on a bit of a limb with PlayStation 4 exclusive Until Dawn. The choose-your-own-adventure story doesn’t have system seller written all over it like Halo 5: Guardians or Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End do, but for fans of the genre it’s shaping up to be a hugely promising summer title.
By all accounts Until Dawn was one of the the most promising games on the E3 2015 show floor, surprising everyone with its genuine scares and its complex, branching choice system. Each and every one of Until Dawn’s six main character can live or die depending on the player's decisions, with the plot continuing regardless.
Supermassive Games has announced its cinematic survival horror game Until Dawn will be released on August 25th in the US and August 26th in Europe. There’s a brand new trailer to celebrate the announcement, giving us a slice of the action from this slasher thriller.
Feeling romantic? Like a digital Cupid, Supermassive Games is here armed with a love-fuelled Until Dawn trailer, with murderous consequences. The Roses are (Blood) Red trailer is a typically grim affair from the serial-killer adventure, juxtaposing a romantic getaway in a cabin in the woods with a good old dose of butchering.
Gamescom is kicking off in Cologne next week, and it’s pretty darned exciting if we do say so ourselves. The summer period is always a quiet one for gaming, but with a jam-packed Autumn release schedule ahead Gamescom looks set to throw a whole bunch of hype our way for upcoming games.
