Until Dawn will feature thousands of storyline branches and hundreds of endings. The game accomplishes this through the use of what Supermassive calls “the butterfly effect.” When a choice must be made, such as whether or not to pick up a book, a small butterfly icon will appear, indicating this choice will have consequences later in the game. The path you choose will lead you to one of Until Dawn’s hundreds of endings.

The choices that shape the game’s path can be something as simple as which door you open to something as pressing as whether or not to put a bullet in your friend’s brain. Sony pointed out at its press conference that every character can die in the game, and if they die, they stay dead and the game moves on. Until Dawn will alter its story based on character deaths, having unique endings based on the number of characters still alive.
