After fans of survival horror games were disappointed with the cancellation of "Silent Hills," they may just have a new reason to rejoice at this recent piece of news on the gaming front. Game developer Supermassive recently revealed the trailer for an upcoming survival horror game called "Until Dawn."
Tech Times reports that if the trailer is indication enough of the game's quality, it is definitely something to look forward to in the horror genre. It will released exclusively for the Sony PlayStation 4. Unlike other games by other developers, not much hype has been made about the game. According to the report, the game's development started a few years ago but was scrapped. Development started again, eventually leading to the game's completion. It will hit retail stores on August 25, 2015.
What is notable about the game, as seen in the trailer, is the participation of some Hollywood actors in the game's development. Some of the characters are actually "motion-captured performances" of Hayden Panettiere of "Heroes" and "Nashville" and Rami Malik of "Twilight." They play two of the eight characters in the game. more >>
