It’s proved a long wait, but the Supermassive-developed PS4 exclusive Until Dawn, which puts the player in a wintry, cabin in the woods slasher, has finally been set for an August 2015 release.

Developed by Supermassive and written by indie horror gems Larry Fessenden and Graham Reznick, Until Dawn lives in familiar stalk-and-slash territory: “Eight friends trapped together on a remote mountain retreat, and they aren’t alone. Gripped by dread, with tensions running high, they must fight through their fear if they all hope to make through the night in one piece.”

The hook, outside of putting you in a position closer than simply screaming at the screen, is that your choices, both large and small, affect the story and the fates of friends. The whole prospect seems like a truly fun extension of and injection of life into the slasher. With the gameplay, it seems audiences who’re always so sure at what a character would and should do, will finally be given their chance reach through the screen.

Hayden Panettiere stars, and announced alongside the release today is Peter Stormare as a member of the cast. Find the official launch trailer, below.
