What you need to know

  • The Quarry appears to be a spiritual successor to the massively popular horror game Until Dawn.
  • It stars nine teen counselors "plunged into an unpredictable night of horror," according to publisher 2K.
  • Supermassive Games expects to release The Quarry on June 10, 2022.

Supermassive Games is back with another horrifying adventure. After its foray into The Dark Pictures Anthology, Supermassive is going back to its roots and developing what looks to be a spiritual successor to Until Dawn. The Quarry sees players controlling nine teen camp counselors whose last night at camp turns into a bloodbath.

Like Until Dawn, The Quarry boasts state of the art facial capture techniques that recreates an ensemble cast starring David Arquette, Ariel Winter, Justice Smith, Brenda Song, Halston Sage, Siobhan Williams, Skyler Gisondo, Evan Evagora, Miles Robbins, Zach Tinker, Ted Raimi, Lance Henriksen, Lin Shaye, Grace Zabriskie, and Ethan Suplee.

Supermassive Games notes that there will be various difficulty settings for players to customize their experience. Movie Mode will also allow players to experience The Quarry as a cinematic movie, selecting how events will play out and then watching the action unfold. The Quarry features online play and co-op as well, allowing friends to vote on decisions that could very well cost a camp counselor their life. No pressure or anything.

If The Quarry lives up to Until Dawn's reputation, we could be looking at what will be one of the best horror games on Xbox. Until Dawn, however, previously utilized the light bar on the DualShock controller in key gameplay moments. It's unclear if The Quarry will feature something similar or how it will be adapted to Xbox. if it's in the game at all.

The Quarry is due out on June 10, 2022 for Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, PS4, PS5, and PC.
