Sony announces Move exclusive slasher during Gamescom briefing
with reveal trailer.

Established in February 2011, Games Catalyst endeavours to bring its unique brand of fact and satire to the videogaming community and, in tandem with 'The Independent', hopefully turn a few non-believers on to gaming while we’re at it.

'One night, eight teenagers, a remote mountain on the anniversary of their friend’s mysterious death… The power’s out, there’s no phone reception and you’re trying to get the blonde cheerleader to notice you. What could possibly go wrong?' So goes the official synopsis for Until Dawn, gaming’s equivalent of the teen horror slasher courtesy of Supermassive Games.
Expect all the usual ingredients from a script bordering on just this side of cringe, a sexy young cast, an isolated location, a devious killer and, of course, a dark secret culminating in that all-important twist. Developed exclusively for PS3, Sony are hoping that Until Dawn will make you look at your Move controller in a 'totally different way,' as it becomes your torch guiding you through the dark as you attempt to survive until sunrise.
In fact, with the game having been developed exclusively for the motion peripheral, you can expect to be doing rather more with the device than just using it to direct the light with the controller said to make your character’s hand 'feel like your own' no matter what it's up to.
Apparently players will step into the shoes of seven different characters in all as they pass the torch to one-another and venture out alone; always a good idea in the world of the slasher horror…
Until Dawn is due for 2013 and we’ll bring you more as it’s announced.
