PS4 Horror Game Until Dawn Gets Release Date, Big Lebowski Actor Joins the Cast

Until Dawn launches August 25; Peter Stormare joins the cast, while a new trailer has been released.

That was just one piece of the announcement today, however. Supermassive also revealed that the Until Dawn cast has added another celebrity actor in the form of Peter Stormare.

You may remember him from his roles in Fargo, The Big Lebowski, or The Lost World: Jurassic Park.

"He gave some incredibly powerful performances in the motion capture studio and you can tell from the end result in the game that he had some fun with the character," Supermassive producer Pete Samuels said in a post on the PlayStation Blog.

What's more, Supermassive has released a new trailer for Until Dawn. Featured is Stormare's character, as well as those played by other actors, including Hayden Panettiere (Heroes, A Bug's Life) and Rami Malek (Need for Speed, Night at the Museum).

On top of that, Supermassive announced a new pre-order bonus for Until Dawn: a special scene where main characters Matt and Emily are alone on the mountain and everything goes wrong.

Until Dawn, which was previously in development for PlayStation 3 with Move support before shifting to PS4, follows a group of eight friends who take what they think will be a fun trip to a cabin in the mountains. Obviously things don't go as planned and they must fight to survive...until dawn.
