Until Dawn is a narrative horror game about eight friends staying in a mountainside lodge. As they settle in they are attacked by a foreboding figure that seems to have been following them. You choose how characters interact, where they go and how they respond to the situation. Inevitably, the group is split up and your goal to get all of them out alive.

NotesAccessibility Notes

You can use motion controls for the interactive movie elements of the game. This requires you to point the controller to the left/right quickly or to stay still when "Don't Move" appears on the screen to hide from a threat. You can disable the motion controls.
