Until Dawn will arrive improved on PS5 and PC thanks to Unreal Engine 5

Next-gen "rebuilt and improved" version coming later this year with new content

At the beginning of this year, it was announced that Until Dawn, a 2015 horror game developed by Supermassive Games, would receive an updated version for PlayStation 5 and PC. Although, whoever leaked the information He assured that it would be announced that same month, did not become a reality until May 30 during the State of Play broadcast.

Now developed in Unreal Engine 5 by the Ballistic Moon studio (a studio acquired by Sony in early 2023 with Supermassive veterans) for the current generation completely “rebuilt and improved” according to Sony; it simply has a 'fall 2024' release window.

In case you don't know what the game is about, Until Dawn is an interactive horror video game that follows eight friends and enemies who gather in a remote mountain retreat.

With life-and-death scenarios featuring a mysterious killer, cannibalistic wendigos, a cable car, and a long-ago mining collapse that reverberates to this day, the group members must fight their fear all night in one piece to manage to survive. The game turned out to be a surprise hit with critics and received numerous gaming award nominations.

Until Dawn is also ready to make the leap to cinema

Earlier this year, Hollywood Reporter reported that filmmaker David F. Sandberg would return to his horror film roots alongside Gary Dauberman for PlayStation Productions' next feature film, a live-action Until Dawn.

According to the outlet, Helmer has signed a deal to direct Until Dawn, an adaptation of the PlayStation horror video game made by Screen Gems and PlayStation Productions.

Although Until Dawn is categorized as an interactive game, those in charge of the film's production describe it as “an R-rated love letter to the horror genre.”

At the moment the actors who will be part of the cast are unknown.

Over the past few years, Sony has brought its most recognized video game franchises to the seventh art. Just last year we saw The Last of Us, Gran Turismo and Twisted Metal move from the world of consoles to the big and small screen, with other projects still on the horizon such as the God of War series on Amazon Prime, the movie from Gravity Rush, and more.
