Until Dawn survival guide

Until Dawn follows the standard formula for teen horror, with your cast of young party people all hovering a single misstep away from a gruesome death. If you want to lead them all safely and see the sun rise again, you're going to need some help avoiding the reaper. That's where this guide comes in - follow our advice to keep everyone alive and earn the They All Live trophy.

Important notes! There are several minor dialogue and exploration choices that do not affect your cast in any major way. The choices discussed in this guide - tied to the game's Butterfly Effect menu, though there are some exceptions - are what determine their fates, and that's what you need to follow. When it comes to quick time events, you need to always press the buttons successfully, unless otherwise noted. You may also find variations of the events written here that will get you through safely, but this guide is a guaranteed formula for surviving the night. Finally, there are no major decisions in the prologue. Phew, now let's get to it!
