SCEA trademarks Until Dawn – competition for Left 4 Dead?

May 17, 2010

SCEA trademarks Until Dawn – competition for Left 4 Dead? Sony has been teasing a new zombie game which is apparently in development. The game is said to be a serious title and not a humorous bite sized game. Many speculate the game to be a contender to Left 4 Dead, which has not been released for the PS3.

Eagle-eyed Superannuation discovered a new trademark filing by Sony for a new game titled Until Dawn. The description for the title seems to indicate some sort of potential persistent world. The description states: “Providing a real-time computer game for others that may be accessed over global and local area computer networks by network users.”

Left 4 Dead has always been about you and a few mates battling it out against hordes of zombies. Could Sony be planning a title that falls into that genre? Its too early to say, but I’m sure Sony will have some more info next month at E3.

    Until Dawn can be any game and Left 4 Dead is pure trash that game sucks more then Too Human. Just because is a zombie game doesn’t mean is to compete with this crap wow people don’t use their brain no more sad. Humans are getting less smarter every day the world is back pedaling.

    PS3 needs one, glad to see they are making progress.

  3. Ivan_PSP:

    PS doesn’t need one Left4Dead is trash one of the worst Xbox 360 small exclusive list. Any game can crush Left4Dead 1 & 2 combine. Left4Dead is less then mediocre.

  4. phranctoast:

    I’d like to remind everyone of Haunted which will be released for the PS3 and won the “make something unreal contest”.

    I hope this game is a true horror-survival, I mean [in case there is a real zombies attack] what are the chances of you breaking in to a random house and finding a bazooka or a granade?

    I hope this game will more running and hiding away from zombies than shooting and blasting their brains…also ammo should be limited and the arsenal should be more realistic (shotguns, pistons, bats, etc)

    I hope this games uses the Uncharted engine for its graphics and gameplay (combat, climbing buildings, run n gun, etc)

  6. CarlB:

    “what are the chances of you breaking in to a random house and finding a bazooka or a granade?”

    Depends on if your up in militiaman territory, or if you happen upon a redneck’s HMMWV like in Zombieland. If you’re crossing Harvard Yard… or Berkeley… not so likely.

  7. phranctoast:

    I like a bit of both. Strict Ammo conservation can get really old and can be kind of a turn off to brand new gamers of a game. Ammo conservation is good at higher difficulties once you know the in’s and outs of a game. Kind of how Dead Space does it on its most difficult setting.

  8. ncaissie:

    Anyone played GOW3 on easy then normal?
    Easy was too easy and Normal seems hard. It’s taking my a lot longer to kill Gods and do the wave of enemy challenges. I doubt I will be able to complete it on higher the Normal without the cheats.
    Still a lot of fun LOL.

  9. Roca.:

    @Phranc
    you can always use melee weapons or just hide/run away from them.

  10. phranctoast:

    @ncaissie

    I’ve played on Normal and then tried Titan and was pretty overwhelmed by the difference in difficulty.

  11. ncaissie:

    I can’t use the cheats from the godly possessions until I beat it on Normal.

  12. Barnabe Jones:

    I beat all 3 GoW games on Normal. IMO 3 was a lot easier than the first two.

    I died a little bit in 3 here and there, but nothing like the other 2 games. I would dies like 5 times in a row on some bits.

  13. ncaissie:

    5 times? LOL I died like 20 or more. They ask me if I want to switch to easy. LOL
    You would think I hit my hand with a hammer for all the cursing. LOL

  14. phranctoast:

    I like when you die a lot on platforming and they ask you if you’d like to change the difficulty while letting you know it will only affect combat.

    I died a bunch trying to ride the harpies.

  15. SW:

    Ammo conservation always ticks me off. Never use my badass weapons and then I end up completing the game wishing that I’d unleashed ‘em.

  16. ncaissie:

    “I like when you die a lot on platforming and they ask you if you’d like to change the difficulty while letting you know it will only affect combat.”

    But it doesn’t only affect combat. It affects what skins get released as well as trophies.

  17. Roca.:

    Sony also trademarked ‘Road to Zero’

  18. CON:

    Gotta love Left 4 Dead. You can just play that game over and over again via shotgun or frying pan lol.

  19. CarlB:

    “Anyone played GOW3 on easy then normal?
    Easy was too easy and Normal seems hard.”

    Yes, easy then Titan. It was definitely more challenging in some parts, but not nearly as frustrating as say… Ninja Gaiden or Super Ghoul’s n’ Ghosts was back in the day.

  20. Barnabe Jones:

    Did anyone here beat Bayonetta on the hardest difficulty?

    I tried playing on the hard difficulty. I only lasted about 5 minuets before I said “F This!”

  21. CarlB:

    Uh… no. GoW III Titan is a cakewalk compared to Bayonetta on Hard… and then… there is still the Legendary Dark Witch achievement to contend with, let alone Rodin…

  22. Ivan_PSP:

    Noobs LoL. Get Killzone 2 Platinum or SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Confrontation and Warhawk especially Warhawk.

    Bayonetta might be hard because the game is trash.

  23. Roca.:

    Heavenly Sword on hard is by far the hardest challange you will ever face….for most games putting a game on hard means you will take more damage and the enemy will take less (harder to kill).. in Heavenly Sword the enemy AI also becomes way smarter to the point where you think you are going against real ppl…they know when to block, attack or do a counter move at the right moment to fuck u up

    Resistance 1 & 2 on Super Human mode is insane

  24. CarlB:

    “Heavenly Sword on hard is by far the hardest challange you will ever face…”

    Your youth is showing roca… here’s that were before your time:

  25. Roca.:

    your stupidy is showing CarlB….but hey its all my fault for expecting more from you.

    I was comparing Heavenly Sword to the games currently being in the discussion

  26. Roca.:

    stupidy = stupitidy*

  27. SW:

    I don’t think he meant anything bad by it man.

    Anyone else hate release days? I’ve gotta go to work, buy RDR and then wait to finish so I can drive home for 40 mins to play the damn game >:(

  28. CarlB:

    Uh… I think you meant to spell out stupidity instead of “stupitidy” there roca… but that’s alright, at least you made the effort.

    In case you missed it, I already mentioned Ninja Gaiden and Ghouls ‘n Ghosts (the sequel to Ghosts ‘n Goblins) “in the discussion”.

  29. Roca.:

    @SW
    I do hate being busy for most of the day on release days!!

    did you get 3DDGH? I was fucking lost for like 2hrs on my way to the Desert Temple once I finally got there I was going to save but I clicked on “load game” instead….OMG I was so pissed, after that I only took me about 30 mins to get there but that freaking temple confusing and enemies are tougher

  30. CarlB:

    “Anyone else hate release days?”

    Nah… I haven’t held that much anticipation for a media release since The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi theatre showings. There is so much new stuff to choose from that I haven’t touched yet. It’s easy to be busy until you finally get around to it anywhere from days to months after release.

    I can understand about your anticipation for RDR though, it’s been a good four years since a decent western videogame hit the streets.

  31. phranctoast:

    I took days off to play games before. There hasn’t been a game thats compelled me to do that for a while now.

  32. twilight:

    Phranctoast,
    The two games that I was looking forward to the most came out already.

  33. SW:

    “I took days off to play games before. There hasn’t been a game thats compelled me to do that for a while now.”

    Same, last one was Vice City. I’m pumped for RDR tho, only now I have priorities and taking a day off for a game is low on that list ;)

  34. Ivan_PSP:

    I got GTA Vice 3 days after it came out it was awesome when i finally got it. The best PS2 game ever made.

  35. ncaissie:

    “I took days off to play games before. There hasn’t been a game thats compelled me to do that for a while now.”

    WHAT?? GOW3? Did you even play it? LOL

  36. phranctoast:

    “WHAT?? GOW3? Did you even play it? LOL”

    I order all my games online. Even with release day delivery, I still don’t get the game until about 3PM and I’m home by 5. I guess I could take the next day off, but GOW3 games I like to really take my time and get everything out of it. I’ll probably wait another 6 months before attempting it on Titan.

  37. ncaissie:

    I’m trying on normal now. I find the changes in difficulty are drastic.

  38. CarlB:

    cakewalk.

  39. Roca.:

    I used to talk days off for RPGs games……last time I took a day off was when FF12 came out on the PS2.

  40. ncaissie:

    GOW3 for me.
