Occasionally characters may find themselves in physical danger. In an action sequence, press the buttons on your DUALSHOCK®4 Wireless Controller that match the on-screen prompts before it’s too late.

If an image of the DUALSHOCK®4 Wireless Controller Light Bar appears, attempt to hold as still as you can.

Until Dawn can also be played using motion controls, which can be selected via the Settings Menu (accessed by pressing the Options button during gameplay). When playing using motion controls, simply move your DUALSHOCK®4 Wireless Controller to match the on-screen prompts. To make choices, first aim the controller at the dialogue prompt then press the S button to confirm.


A tiny butterfly flapping its wings today may lead to a devastating hurricane weeks from now.

Every decision you make in Until Dawn will have consequences, some obvious, some unexpected. Even the smallest decision can dramatically affect future events.

Some choices must be made swiftly. Select the option you want before the white circle around your choice disappears, or risk unforeseen outcomes.

Often you will be presented with a choice with no clear outcome. You’ll just have to trust your own instincts.

And remember – sometimes the wisest thing is to do nothing at all…


If you enable the PlayStation®Camera in the Settings menu, the Camera Captures feature will appear in the Main menu.

Enabling use of the camera will let the game automatically take video of the player and playing environment at certain moments in the game. This video will be stored on your console, which you can view in the “Cheap Shots” section. If available, videos may also be shared on social media via the PS4™ share functionality.


Every time you’re presented with a choice, you can opt to see what percentage of players have chosen each option and perhaps use this to guide your decision.

Select Global Stats from the Settings menu and if your PlayStation®4 is connected to the Internet, you’ll see a percentage next to each choice.
