It's time to go back to Blackwood Mountain. Sony is gearing up to release its remastered version of Until Dawn, the 2015 Supermassive Games' interactive horror game.

You might have heard of the company before if you've played any of their Dark Pictures Anthology series, including House of Ashes, Man of Medan, and Little Hope, but Until Dawn is one of their most popular and successful games to date.

Announced in January of this year, Sony shared a first-look trailer for the remastered version during the State of Play 2024, confirming it will be released exclusively on PS5 and PC this fall.

The trailer is age restricted, so you might have to go to YouTube to watch it.

Most of the clips shown in the trailer look like moments from the original game, apart from one moment that appears to be a scene showing the group helping Josh (Rami Malek) onto a couch. There will be some new content, but understandably, we probably won't see much (or any) until the game is out.

The remastered version of Until Dawn will feature improved audio, visuals, and a new third-person mode. UK studio Ballistic Moon rebuilt the game in Unreal Engine 5, using the latest tools and technology to upgrade the VFX, environments, and character models.

The trailer shows that the character models look more like their real-life counterparts, with stars like Hayden Panettiere (Scream), Rami Malek (Mr. Robot), Brett Dalton (God of War: Ragnarok), Jordan Fisher (The Flash), and Meaghan Martin (Kingdom Hearts) among the cast.

For those who will be picking up Until Dawn for the first time, it follows a group of eight friends who return to an isolated lodge on Blackwood Mountain where two of their friends disappeared a year ago. As one might expect, their mountain retreat soon turns into a nightmare, and they have to do whatever it takes to survive the night.

The Hollywood Reporter previously announced that a film adaptation is in the works with Lights Out director David F. Sandberg attached.
