Good news for all of you survival horror fans out there; a new Until Dawn DLC might be in the works if an anonymous email is to be believed.
Destructoid is reporting that they were sent details of an alleged downloadable content pack that the developers are calling Rush of Blood. They also insist that the details have been reconfirmed by a second source too.
That being said, the Until Dawn DLC in question is apparently being market tested with a handful of people in the United Kingdom. Interestingly the downloadable content pack has been developed specially for the PlayStation VR.
Here’s an excerpt from the email:
Well you get transported around inside a mine cart; it’s very literally an on-rails experience. There are a few scattered jumpscares, as you’d expect, but I played the same 20 minute section twice (once with DS4, once with dual Move controllers), so I’m hoping the full DLC is a lot more padded out. I didn’t see which character I was playing as, I’m not sure if it’s specified, but no names were mentioned at all.
It starts off shooting targets in the snow, then moves toward a house and as you get deeper into the house, enemies start appearing (I believe they were Wendigos). The frequently reused jumpscare is the ‘ghost’ from inside the house in Until Dawn, who you end up fighting for the final area I played. Upon killing the ghost, the game would crash every time.
So when this Until Dawn DLC comes out, it will be a first person shooter based experience and it will be “on-rails.”
PlayStation VR is expected to ship sometime next year, so we can assume that solid details on the said DLC won’t come out until a little later – unless this leak pushes Supermassive to come out with their plans.
