Until Dawn was a beautiful nightmare lol

ScreenGurus2848d ago

Very beautiful, but very scary the first time through haha

ClayRules20122848d ago

Until Dawn was an absolute joy to play. My 2nd favorite game on PS4 so far, after Uncharted 4. Until Dawn was horrifying, intense, emotional & a riveting experience.

A Beautiful Nightmare, it was! Thank you, Supermassive Games =)

ScreenGurus2848d ago

The nice thing about Until Dawn is that it knows its audience so well

At least it's mostly cinematic. I worry about performance currently of anything running on Unreal 5 that has any kind of "action" in it.


Until Dawn Remake vs. Original Comparison Highlights If This Is A Worthy Upgrade

Until Dawn is getting a remake which always felt like an odd choice since the original still looks pretty good, is it worth the upgrade?

Not really… they just couldn’t be bothered with making a sequel? This original is already available on PS5 and for the cheap. This just seems kind of pointless and I’m not seeing anything that screams next-gen remake to me, but if you’re a fan of it and looking forward to this, more power to ya’

Dark Pictures Anthology games didn't exactly sell well, but they were much lower budget games that reused assets all over the place.

Its probably safe to assume that this remake - which will also presumably reuse but improve assets from the original - is a test bed to see if a high budget sequel is actually financially viable. Also brings in people who never played it when it released 9 years ago.

I'm just spit balling but it makes sense.
Ill be buying it like I do all their games haha obviously I'd rather a sequel but I totally get it.

And of all the remakes we could have gotten, they choose this one.

MetroidFREAK2141d ago

As someone who hasn't played this before, I'll be snagging it on PS5

anast40d ago

It's a good game and it's definitely worth a purchase if you haven't played it before.

MrBaskerville40d ago (Edited 40d ago )

It's good, The Quarry is worth a look while you wait.

MetroidFREAK2140d ago

I have that on disc for PS5. That's on my backlog

Iceball200040d ago

Is there an upgrade fee for this or no? Like how TLoU had and Uncharted.

shinoff218340d ago

Even if their was. Actual work was put into this. Companies that give it away were doing it and thanked for it. Or they were doing it cause they fked up really bad Ala cyberpunk

Also you have to be mistaken cause the last of us is a straight up remake, mad work was put into that. You also didn't have buy it or anything to play the ps4 version. It was also one of the best games for awhile and it's certainly better then anything the other high end console has put out in a very long time if ever

Crows9040d ago

What other high end console?

anast40d ago

What do you do for a living? What ever it is I want you to do it for free.

cthulhucultist40d ago

Having played all Dark Pictures Anthology games as well as the Quarry, I am definitely not skipping this one.

I would even buy the original if it was on PC, since I only have a Steamdeck and a Switch.

I remember that it got surprisingly good reviewed and the Quarry has loosely the same premise as Until Dawn (not exactly the same but similar setting)

on_line_forever40d ago

Wait a minute why they use sun lights in horror game ? What's wrong with those developers ?

Even in Silent hill 2 remake bloober team use sun lights in hospital reception WHY ? The whole city is covered with fog

Really bad developers we have these days

Single-Player Titles God Of War Ragnarok & Until Dawn Will Require PSN Account On PC

Sony Interactive Entertainment's upcoming single-player PC games like God of War Ragnarok and Until Dawn will require a PSN account.

Sony will lose support and money from 177 countries that support Steam but do not support PSN!
Tell me about stupidity, I'll tell you Sony.
Its concern is to increase the number of PSN subscribers, at the expense of profit and
More sales for their games from 177 countries.

purple10142d ago (Edited 42d ago )

Thing is it’s free to create an account (for pc players)

So they don’t need essential / extra / premium tiers, there is literally no good reason. Stupid but I don’t know the ins-and-outs but I can imagine it’s just a dumb reason

Ohh actually maybe it’s to combat piracy, so the game will not launch unless you have psn, then Sonys server end would validate if it’s a real copy or a cracked one

That could be it

ApocalypseShadow42d ago

Ding ding ding. Your edit brought the answer. Lol

Sony wants to validate their games on PC so that they know who's legit and who stole them. I understand Prince in that we have too many accounts we have to make. And it's a slippery slope. Like ported Xbox games to PlayStation will require a Microsoft account. Besides the already Ubisoft accounts and Epic accounts. Hard to keep up with all these names and passwords.

But you figured it out.

blacktiger42d ago

so you are saying it's another DRM? And is it always online? even though it's single player offline game?

darthv7242d ago (Edited 42d ago )

Its free... sure. The main issue are the countries that are not on the list to select when creating the account. And I don't think Sony allows nearest neighbor, where you pick the one closest to you that is supported. People can obviously pick any country they want from the list, but that then becomes saddled to them going forward. Personally my country is supported, and I have not felt the need to change it so I dont even know if you can after the fact. If I were to move to an unsupported country... would the games even work if it detects me playing it from one when I am registered in the other?

This all stems from the whole Helldivers fiasco. Countries that support steam, and let them buy it and play only to have them cut off because their country was not officially part of the PSN account creation which was later enforced after the fact.
