Until Dawn: Rush Of Blood Is A Full Standalone Game For PlayStation VR

The confusion has been conquered, as it has been revealed that Until Dawn: Rush of Blood is not DLC but a standalone game for the PlayStation VR.

Supermassive executive producer Simon Harris spoke with VG247 regarding the game and he said the following:

“It’s not DLC, or anything like that. It’s its own product for PlayStation VR; it’s just set in the world of Until Dawn. This game charts the descent into madness of one of the characters from the Until Dawn universe. As they play through, fans of the series will start to recognise very familiar locations, some things around the characters and other similar aspects. It’s very much set in that world and that universe, but it’s a completely separate game.”

There currently isn’t any word on an actual release date for this game, but I gotta say that I’m pretty pumped to see how this one turns out. A lot of people loved Until Dawn on PS4, so if they could replicate that experience in virtual reality it could really be something special.

Hidden Surprises Have Been Placed In Until Dawn For Halloween

As far as creepy games go for this year, Until Dawn is up there with the best of them to be played around Halloween. It might not have released during the spookiest month of the year, but that isn’t stopping developer Supermassive Games from having a little fun.

The developer posted a message on Twitter teasing that owners of the game would have some hidden surprises to find starting today until Halloween. The hidden surprises have since been revealed as pumpkins, and the game asks you to tweet your best pumpkin screenshot with the hashtag #UntilDawnPumpkin. Check out the tweet below.


A Sequel To Until Dawn Is Being Considered

When Until Dawn released for the PlayStation 4 recently, nobody really expected all that much from it. It was originally a PlayStation 3 game that was tailor made for the PlayStation Move, but all of that was scrapped and it is now a PlayStation 4 game. Still, once it launched it got some pretty glowing reviews and has generated a lot of buzz.

Of course, where there is success there is a looming sequel, and developer Supermassive Games is considering just that for Until Dawn. However, they aren’t considering a sequel in the traditional sense, as it would instead contain a different cast of characters but with a similar structure.

Until Dawn is available exclusively for the PlayStation 4.

Sony Was Surprised By Positive Until Dawn Reception

Until Dawn was a game that nobody was really sure how it would turn out, but it released and just about everyone loved the interactive horror game.

Speaking with Eurogamer, Sony boss Shuhei Yoshida revealed the company was extremely happy and surprised by just how much love the game was getting:

“We’re super happy with the reactions from people, especially people who are streaming or posting videos on YouTube. It’s super fun to watch other people play, even after you’ve finished the game, because other people make different choices.”

“I’m very happy with how the game was received. I think everybody was caught by surprise by the positive reaction. That’s a really great thing for the future of the interactive drama genre. We’re a big fan of this genre. These games can talk to a broader audience. You don’t have to be good at playing games. You can even just watch your friend play the game.”

Until Dawn is available exclusively for the PlayStation 4.

PlayStation 4 Exclusive ‘Until Dawn’ Has Gone Gold

Developer Supermassive Games has announced that their PlayStation 4 exclusive horror game Until Dawn has officially gone gold. Now all that’s left to do is send the game to factories for production to get ready for its release on August 25th.

Until Dawn

This game is one that has me cautiously optimistic, as the idea of what is essentially a teen horror movie that bends towards the decisions you make could be very cool. There are also multiple endings that can be seen, meaning that the game will definitely have a good amount of replay value for those wanting to see every one. I’m just hoping that the story goes beyond just standard teen slasher tropes.

The game was originally intended to be a PlayStation 3 title with PlayStation Move support, but after that was tossed to the wayside they decided to retool it for PlayStation 4. The game follows a group of 8 friends who take a trip to a snowy cabin in the mountains. Of course, something is there that is trying to kill them all and they must survive the horror until dawn. The game features the likeness of notable actors such as Hayden Panettiere, Brett Dalton and Rami Malek.

Until Dawn Will *NOT* Contain Multiplayer

While earlier reports were claiming that PlayStation 4’s upcoming exclusive horror game called Until Dawn would contain multiplayer that would support up to 12 players, those reports have now been proven as false.

Apparently, the 2-12 multiplayer mode that was listed in the game’s press release was confirmed as a mistake by an SCEE representative. The game is set to be singleplayer only, which makes much more sense considering it’s a horror game.

It won’t be long until we find out how Until Dawn turns out, as the game is set to launch on August 25th. If you pre-order the game you even get 25 minutes of extra gameplay.

Until Dawn’s Box Art Is Fantastic

Some cool box art for Supermassive Games’ Horror game, Until Dawn.

A lot of box art that us gamers look at on a daily basis can be pretty standard, with some dude walking towards us with his chin down and eyes glaring at us. However, every now and then some box art comes a long where I go, “Wow, that’s actually some pretty cool stuff,” and Until Dawn‘s has done exactly that.

There are currently 4 different box arts for the game, 3 of which are European variations and the US being the same as the standard European one. The steel book one is simple but really cool, but both the standard European and US versions are my favorite. What’s kind of weird though is that the other one calls it an extended edition, with no details on what that even means. It also doesn’t look like that one is planned for US release at this time, so that’s a bummer.
