PlayStation Underground: Until Dawn

Welcome back to PlayStation Underground, our online show about video games! Today, we sit down with branching horror game Until Dawn on PS4. What happens when you combine lingering tragedies, a desolate cabin, and one jumpy gamer? You’re about to find out.

PlayStation Underground: Until Dawn

Until Dawn gives players the power to influence the gory narrative at nearly every turn. The fate of each character is heavily impacted by player choice, including who in this haunting story emerges alive — and who meets an untimely end. At least one thing is certain: never take a bath in a creepy cabin. It’s not worth it! You can find that out for yourself when Until Dawn launches on PS4 next week, August 25th.

Let us know what you think in the comments, and remember that we’ll be back soon with more Underground in the weeks to come. Enjoy the show!

  • Hi Ryan :-)

    Although you’re a brave man playing this alone in the dark, the PSX demo last year showed Until Dawn might be a fun social experience too (either live locally, or livestreaming). Do you the think the game is well-suited for that format?

    • Absolutely. Totally the kind of game you could bring a group of friends together for, like a scary movie. ^_^

    • Well, Ryan, you just confirmed a purchase from me! My friends and family love getting together to play scary games.

  • Any idea on how long the game is?

  • Yess Can’t wait to pick up my paid off copy next week! Thanks for another great Underground Mr. Clements!

  • Hey Ryan, you never got back to me on Twitter (I understand though) so I caved in and got both of your books. Reading the first one now. :)

    Anyways, this game is pre-ordered and paid for. Can’t wait to play it. I love horror and choice based games and I’m a strong believer in the butterfly effect (also, karma).

    I hope you don’t mind if I skip this episode of Underground as I’d like my experience in this game to be fresh and spoiler-free. The short demos from PSX and E3 were enough for me. I was sold long ago. Story driven, choice based games like this and King’s Quest, Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls, The Walking Dead, ect are right up my alley but I find they’re best if you just jump in blindly the first time.

    • Sorry I didn’t get back to you, sir! I’ll keep my eyes better peeled. ^_^

      And totally understand. Once you’re done with the story, maybe you can go back and watch me freak out. :-D

    • LOL, please don’t apologize, really it’s my fault. I bother you guys too much >_<

      Seriously though, I understand you're busy.

  • I think it would be great if every character was a player per session, I would love playing that with my friends

  • I’m really looking forward to playing this with my girlfriend (she hates horror)! I really hope that VR is on the radar of Supermassive games, as this seems like it would be a wonderful fit. It would be like a 360deg VR movie that offered tons of interaction!

  • The spirit board scene got me much more interested in the game than the prior showings. It showed more choice and personality in the characters, whereas the Sam demo was mainly about running and hiding.

    Both look interesting, and I’ll definitely keep an eye on the game, now. Hopefully this will be as entertaining as Heavy Rain was.

  • Really hoping for good things from this game. I do love me some good survival horror/adventure gaming!

  • The game looks great, I will definitely get it, but i need to know how i can get those pillows!!

  • The vid would be better if you set it on subtitle you talked over the dialogues.

  • Is that Hayden Panettiere voice acting Sam?

    • Yes, it is.

      Brett Dalton (Agent Ward from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) is also in the game, though you don’t really see him in the video.

  • Still no details on same-sex romance choices, and the other questions that remain unanswered. I pre-ordered both Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls because I love the gameplay/story mix, but also because those devs and PR folks actually answered questions. I’ll wait for this to go on sale.

    I’d personally love to see SuperMassive bring their Move games to PS4. Playing Tumble and Start the Party in 1080p60 stereo 3D would be a revelation. I hope that WonderBook is included in the Morpheus retail package so that Walking with DInosaurs, Book of Spells, and Diggs Nightcrawler can get PS4 versions as well. (As well as Morpheus-specific titles that use WonderBook as well, of course!)

    • Seriously, what the f)$k is your obsession with same sex relationships and the entire LGBT community in general? Give it a god dam rest already. It was bad enough when you constantly badgered developers about “lossless audio” and other crap. Sheesh.

  • That guy on the couch doing all the talking….. How’s come NO one snuck up behind him wearing a mask and tapping his shoulder after the board game seen and watch how high he jumped is Beyond me?

  • I cannot wait to pick up the special steel book edition of UNTIL DAWN. Here in Aus they offer it with the steel book edition. So I preordered it after buying myself a PS4. 21st birthday gift for myself… Plus I bought a PS4 because of this game. I watch the first 6mins. and stop, I don’t want spoiler :) Thanks Clements.

  • Great, as always on Underground! Didn’t watch all of it so not to spoil it, but I enjoyed what I saw. Will not be able to pick it up day 1 cause money is tight, but I cannot wait to pick it up later.

  • Ryan, did you notice the creepy silhouette at 18:26???

  • Don’t know if anyone noticed but you can see what I believe is the killer at 11:07 and pause it you will see a blonde haired guy in the back right of the screen running across to the right of the screen in the background.

  • This is one of the most hillarious (Ryan’s commentary was really funny) and most terrifying Underground episode yet! Definitely my favourite one yet.

    Thanks for the great episode!

  • Now I’m interested in this game after seeing this, the camera remind me of resident evil 1-3 and the story looks interesting.

  • PLEEEEEAAAASE MAKE THIS ONE A PS+ GAME!!!!!! i will love to play it with my pulse headset.

  • Just preordered my copy and have preload set up so the game will be downloaded and ready to for me to play when I get home Tuesday morning. Can’t wait!

  • BTW, what’s up with all the cow skulls in the game?

    • I’ve heard a lot of problems associated with this game. Also, I cannot purchase this game through the website. Has this game been taken down or does any one know if something is wrong on Sony’s side.
