Until Dawn is going to officially release on August 25 for the PlayStation 4 in North America, Supermassive Games has announced. The narrative-focus horror title is going to then launch a day later in PAL territories and finally on August 28 in the United Kingdom and Ireland.
As part of the release date announcement, the developer also revealed a new addition to the Until Dawn cast. Swedish actor Peter Stormare, best known for his role in the 1996 film Fargo and the television series Prison Break, as well as in The Big Lebowski and The Lost World: Jurassic Park, is going to be bringing a “powerful performance” to the game.
“He gave some incredibly powerful performances in the motion capture studio and you can tell from the end result in the game that he had some fun with the character,” Supermassive producer Pete Samuels said in a post on the PlayStation Blog.
This isn’t the first time Stormare has worked with video games. The actor has previously lent his voice to titles such as The Elder Scrolls Online and Destiny.
In Until Dawn, he will be joining Heroes’ Hayden Panettiere and six other companions in a survival adventure story that’s inspired by various horror genres.
Until Dawn was originally in development for the PlayStation 3 with PlayStation Movie functionality. The game, however, was then delayed and finally shifted to the PlayStation 4. Amongst other things, the new DualShock 4 controller will allow players to make choices by utilizing its tilting functionality.
