Until Dawn Remake Details Reveal Unreal Engine 5, New Camera System and More

Sony has detailed some of the new features players can expect to see in the upcoming Until Dawn remake. While the game was originally reported as a remaster, Sony has confirmed that it is a full remake of the original 2015 game.

According to Creative Director at Ballistic Moon Neil McEwan, Until Dawn has been rebuilt from the ground up on Unreal Engine 5. As a result, the game takes full advantage of the engine’s advanced visual systems including ray-traced shadows and reflections and other enhanced visual effects.

A big part of the original Until Dawn game was its facial animations. They helped tell the story and deliver the narrative horror aspects. Ballistic Moon says Unreal Engine 5 has enhanced the facial capture to deliver even more compelling and believable emotions.

Until Dawn will also feature new content and mechanics. For example. there’s an added third-person camera which means players can now control the camera while they play the game. The original Until Dawn had a set camera that followed you around and moved according to your location. The new camera gives you the freedom to explore your surroundings.

“We use a broader cinematic tonal colour palette and new perspectives to make the story more nuanced and emotional. We’ve been brave enough to shine a light into the dark, unseen corners of Blackwood Mountain and added a third-person camera, which means you can now look behind the curtain of the original game, exploring enhanced and new locations with new interactions and collectables. “

Until Dawn is expected to launch sometime this year. The game is also getting a film adaption directed by David F. Sandberg (Lights Out, Annabelle: Creation), and a screenplay written by Gary Dauberman (It: Chapter Two, The Nun and The Nun II) and Blair Butler (The Invitation).
