Until Dawn announced for PlayStation Move

Teen horror title from Supermassive Games.

Sony has unveiled Until Dawn during its Gamescom press conference today to be a PlayStation Move horror title developed by Tumble studio Supermassive Games.

Inspired by classic cult teen horror movies, Until Dawn promises to draw players in with its characters, “killer dialogue,” and a “shocking, twisted story.” Its story is written by Hollywood writers and U.S. TV talent.

On the anniversary of their friends’ disappearance, seven teenagers visit the site of the mystery to “bury their ghosts and get some closure,” but may “end up burying each other instead.” The power has gone out, the phones are not working, and it is the player’s job to keep the teenagers alive through a long and eventful night.

The game makes use of the PlayStation Move controller “in a totally natural way,” according to the developer. It will act as a flashlight when it is dark, you will fire a gun with it, and use it to lunge knives and make subtle movements when necessary.

Until Dawn is due out for PlayStation 3 in 2013. Watch the debut trailer below. View the first set of screenshots at the gallery.
