After an ominous 15 second teaser a few days ago, Sony debuted a full trailer for Supermassive Games' horror-movie inspired title, Until Dawn.

First, it is absolutely official: the game is now coming to PlayStation 4. The game was originally announced back in 2012 at gamescom and was at the time a first-person horror game on the PS3 which would utilize the PS Move.

The game has gone through a major overhaul since the team at Supermassive decided to go next gen. Until Dawn will utilize the Killzone: Shadow Fall engine to draw you in and freak you out. The whole game was rebuilt from the ground up, with improved visuals, a darker atmosphere and incredible sound work. People don't appreciate how important sound is to creating a horror atmosphere.

The biggest change, though, is that the focus has shifted from first to third person. In a blog posted shortly after the trailer debut, Supermassive's own Pete Samuels stated that this "allows a much more cinematic experience for you, so you feel completely immersed in this beautiful but spine-chilling world."

Eight friends go to a cabin in the woods in the night and all hell breaks loose. The game is written by horror auteurs Graham Reznick and Larry Fessenden (whose film Habit comes highly recommended by this site's editor) and features the voice acting of Hayden Panetierre, Rami Malek and Brett Dalton.

"Now you have a more mature, darker and fundamentally more terrifying experience on PS4." says Samuels.

Players will experience the single night of horror as all 8 of the characters and even cross paths with their fellow future victims, err...friends.
