It appears that Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) might be teasing a the return of a long-lost PlayStation exclusive videogame for Gamescom next week. The company recently released a teaser trailer and image of a snowflake (seen below), linking it to the event, where it will hold a press conference on 12th August 2014. It could well be that this snowflake relates to Until Dawn, first revealed a few years back for the PlayStation 3 and now rumoured to be heading to PlayStation 4 with support for the Project Morpheus virtual reality (VR) head-mounted display (HMD). Could this be the long-awaited return of the title? Let’s look at the facts.
Until Dawn is set in a remote snowy area in which a group of teenagers embark on a holiday that soon finds them fighting for their lives as they come under attack from an unknown threat. The combination of snowflake and blood in the image above suggests this could be a hint for the title’s return. SCE Head of Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida has in the past said that the title would be an interesting pairing with Project Morpheus. Since then developer Supermassive Games has revealed its own tech demo for the device, Jurassic Encounter. Could it finally be time for this title to step out of the shadows?
If so then it could mean that SCE is planning more details for Project Morpheus at Gamescom. The device made an apperance at E3 2014 this year though only in the form of more tech demos. VRFocus will be at Gamescom 2014 to bring you all the latest in the VR industry from PlayStation and beyond.
