Until Dawn dev announces VR prequel The Inpatient

Set 60 years before the first game.

Until Dawn developer Supermassive Games is releasing its second Until Dawn VR spin-off. This time it's a prequel called The Inpatient.

Set 60 years before the events of Until Dawn, The Inpatient is set in the creepy Blackwood Sanatorium. As Silent Hill, Outlast, and The Evil Within have taught us, nothing good ever comes from an asylum in a video game.

Based on its reveal trailer above, The Inpatient looks like a narrative-driven adventure that's a far cry from Supermassive's previous Until Dawn VR spin-off, Until Dawn: Rush of Blood, which was an on-rails shooter centered around a hellish series of roller coasters. Our Ian Higton really liked that one.

Watch Until Dawn's early first-person version

From back when it was a PS3 Move game.

Teenage slasher choose-your-own-adventure game Until Dawn had surprising success upon its launch last year on PS4.

But it started out as a very different beast.

Here's a fresh look at PS4-exclusive horror thriller Until Dawn

Don't hide under the bed. Never hide under the bed.

At The Game Awards last night Sony showed off new gameplay of its PlayStation 4 exclusive horror thriller Until Dawn.

Until Dawn, developed by the Guildford-based Supermassive Games, brings to mind David Cage games such as Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls with its quick time events and scripted gameplay.

The video, below, shows a woman desperately trying to escape a masked killer. At points the player is asked to make a decision: throw the vase or run, hide under the bed or jump over it, run or stay still.

SCEE releases Halloween trailers for Puppeteer, LittleBigPlanet Karting, Sly Cooper 4 and Until Dawn

SCEE has released Halloween-themed trailers for its following games: Puppeteer, Until Dawn, LittleBigPlanet Karting, and Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time.

The Puppeteer trailer seems the most Halloween-y in that it's clearly inspired by Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas, something its art director Gavin Moore freely admited on the PlayStation Blog.

Sly Cooper is well-suited to the holiday as well being that it stars a guy who literally appears to be wearing a mask even when he isn't. The shady devil!

Eurogamer witnessed a playthrough of one of the game's early chapters, entitled "If you go down in the woods today".

PlayStation 3-exclusive horror game Until Dawn announced

Sony has announced Until Dawn, a new adult horror game for PlayStation Move that riffs on teen horror films.

It's being created by British developer Supermassive Games, of 2/10 Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock fame.

Expect plenty of tongue-in-cheek horror, designed to emulate the kind of movies where Bad Things happen to pretty teenagers trapped alone in a shack on a mountain in the middle of the night.
