Until Dawn is a unique survival horror game released on August 25, 2015. The game is developed by Supermassive Games and published by Sony Computer Entertainment as a PlayStation 4 exclusive. This page will serve as the Until Dawn Walkthrough and Guide. From here you’ll be able to beat every chapter, saving as many of your characters as possible. We’ll also show you where to find all of the game’s Totems, as well as Clues in case you’re on the collectible hunt.
The tricky part about Until Dawn is that any of the hundreds of decisions you’ll have to make could lead to a butterfly effect that drastically changes the way the story plays out for you in future chapters. It even changes the title of each chapter, which is why we've opted to use the time until dawn as our chapter titles. For this reason, you might find that some of what we encountered isn’t the same as what you experienced. However, if you are stuck at a particular crossroads and don’t know what to do, chances are we have been there and can help you make the best decision possible.
Before we jump into the walkthrough, let’s start off with a few tips.
- Collect Totems and Clues, as they can help you avoid trouble, and in some cases are required in order to save the life of some of your characters.
- Never let your guard down during cut scenes, as Until Dawn has many QTEs that can save your life, or lead to your death. One mistake and you’re done.
- There are no save slots, so whatever happens on your first play through is permanent. All of your characters could live, or they could all die. It’s up to you.
- As a general rule, don’t wander off on your own. In some situations leaving the group can lead to your death, but staying with has yet to backfire on us.
- The game tells you that sometimes choosing to do nothing is the best option, and we can confirm that on several occasions this advice saved someone’s life.
