Until Dawn Walkthrough - Guide to Survive the Night, Find Totems, Butterfly Effects

Survive the night and save all characters in Until Dawn on PS4. Every chapter detailed in our survival guide.

Until Dawn released on PS4 in 2015 and surprised a lot of people. Having started life as a PS Move title for PS3, the game dazzled on PS4 with more traditional controls, beautiful visuals, tense moments and characters you could care about. Releasing on PlayStation Plus on July 4, there’s no better time to jump in. This Until Dawn Walkthrough and Guide will help you make all the game’s difficult choices and survive the night with as many characters alive as possible.

In this Until Dawn Walkthrough and Guide you’ll find complete walkthroughs of every chapter, including details on how you can save each of the eight characters in the game. We’ll also be helping you to find Totems, as well as the clues that can be found throughout the environment. Finally, we will cover each and every Butterfly Effect, ensuring that you have the information required to make the best decisions for your desired outcome.

The trick with Until Dawn is that the smallest decision can drastically alter your game several chapters down the line. For example, if you need help with chapter seven, but didn’t choose the same path as us in prior parts, you might see and experience different things. To overcome the potential differences in your play through versus ours, we’ve tried to identify the danger situations for each character, and then figure out how to ensure their survival. These will be clearly explained in the chapters that follow.

Until Dawn Tips and Tricks - How to Survive

  • If you are used to an inverted pitch, expect to struggle. Be prepared to quickly respond to life and death QTEs.
  • Should you struggle with the Don’t Move mechanic, turn your controller’s vibration off in the PlayStation 4 settings.
  • Press R1 on your controller to bring up clues and Totems. Study these to ensure that you know what’s coming.
  • As a general rule, always stick together if given the option. Splitting from the group will often result in your death.
  • You can always choose the quick path over the safe path, but be prepared to hit the QTEs or you might not survive.
