Special Halloween events going on in 'Until Dawn'
Its a perfect couple of days to discover Supermassive's way underrated little supernatural thriller, 'Until Dawn', and the publisher knows it, which is why it's getting the game into the holiday spirit with a couple of events. (Check out the game review here.)
For starters, an update for the game is now available which adds 11 Halloween pumpkins to be found throughout the game. By the dev's own admission, these things arent easy to find, but they've also started the hashtag #UntilDawnPumpkin on Twitter, which shows off all the ones that have currently been found by users. Doesn't seem like there's any particular reward for finding them all, but c'mon, who doesn't love a good scavenger hunt? The blog post also mentioned they'll only be findable "around Halloween", which sounds a whole lot like they're disappearing on November 1st. So, best get on that.
In addition, for the more high-minded folks, tomorrow, at 12:30 PM PDT, Supermassive will be holding a livestream broadcast of the game with Director's Commentary. You can find the link to watch through the new Playstation Events tab on the PS4's Home screen (the little calendar icon to the right of your Friend List, fyi)
Very lastly, Supermassive will be releasing a free Dynamic Theme for the game for the holiday as well. All in all, a very good way to spend a holiday. Happy Halloween indeed.
