    A twisting tale of terror

    Life and death decisions

    Open your eyes… and prepare yourself for the dread of unforgettable psychological horror. Set 60 years before the nerve-shredding events of PS4 smash hit Until Dawn, you awaken in a strange medical facility, with no memory. It’s up to you to discover why you’re trapped within Blackwood Pines Sanatorium – and uncover a chilling conspiracy lurking within its shadows.  

    Feel every spine-tingling moment as PS VR puts you in the heart of the horror with a full body model showing your legs, arms and hands on-screen – while innovative voice controls means your character says what you want.

    Make meaningful choices in a branching narrative that leads to different endings as you try to figure out who you are, and why you’re here. But in a world where you can barely trust your own memories… how can you truly trust anyone else?
