Until Dawn will be released on August 25

Sony has announced Until Dawn, their deranged-killer-in-the-woods tale (and there’s a cabin too), will be released on August 25. Suppermassive’s horror game has traveled a rocky road from announcement to release (the game was originally expected to be a Move-exclusive title for the PS3), but there’s finally light at the end of the tunnel.

To celebrate, the developer has released a brand new “Launch Date Trailer” that features even more footage of teenagers in peril. Any, or all, of the eight characters can be felled by the killer’s axe… and we might finally know who’s playing him. Posting on the PlayStation Blog, Supermassive’s Pete Samuels announced that Peter Stomare has joined the game’s cast in a mystery role. While we don’t know if Stormare will be playing the killer, he’s portrayed a psycho so many times on film (most famously in Fargo) that it would be a huge shock if he were a good guy.

Finally, Sony and Supermassive also revealed that players who pre-order Until Dawn will receive access to a special Bonus Chapter. According to Samuels this chapter will star Matt and Emily, “a new couple, out on the mountain… but it’s not long until they start to suspect they aren’t alone.”
