For those about to experience Until Dawn for the first time, you’re in for an amazing adventure. Until Dawn was one of the first games I reviewed way back when I started this site and I stayed up all Friday night beating it.
Since downloading it for “free” with PS Gold the other night I forgot about one incredible feature I wish was implemented in more games.
Share Your Scares
Plug your PS Camera in. Hit settings and tick the box next to Enable PlayStation Camera. Now every time there’s a jump scare in the game your camera will turn on and record your reaction. This works splendidly if you are with your significant other or a pal.
I’d also go one step further and put a little cover over the camera light as it usually turns on right before a jump scare ruining the surprise. If on the other hand, you can’t deal with the jump scares to keep the light on as to prepare yourself for the horror.
You can check out your scares under Camera Captures.
Go slowly. Take your time exploring and be smart about your choices. Really soak in the game. It’s a fun one! Hats off to developers Supermassive Games for making the 80s horror cliches and slasher movie tropes work so well!
