Until Dawn spiritual successor ‘The Quarry’ will get online multiplayer a month after launch

Back in March, Supermassive Games officially announced The Quarry, a spiritual successor to Until Dawn, the studio's best known game. Unlike Until Dawn, The Quarry will feature co-op gameplay and will release across Xbox, PlayStation and PC later this year. Unfortunately, the game's online co-op features have been delayed. 

Rather than delaying the full release, The Quarry will still release this year, on the 10th of June. However, the game will be missing its planned online multiplayer feature. Instead, online multiplayer will be added to the game roughly one month later, on the 8th of July. Local multiplayer should still be available at launch.

The Quarry stars a cast of teenagers as they try to survive the final night of summer camp. Just like in Until Dawn, each of these main characters can live or die depending on the player's choices. The cast is also made up of Hollywood actors, so expect to see some familiar faces, like David Arquette from the Scream films, Miles Robbins from 2018's Halloween, Lance Henriksen from Aliens, Ted Raimi from Evil Dead and more.

In co-op mode, Player 2 will take on the role of a counsellor in-game. In online mode, multiple players can join your game and help to vote on decisions, a feature that should make for some interesting Twitch streams. The Quarry is set to release for PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4 and PS5 on the 10th of June.

KitGuru Says: Supermassive did a great job keeping this game under wraps right up until just a few months away from launch. The inclusion of co-op seems excellent too, although it is unfortunate that online features will be coming a month later. With such a small delay, we do wonder why the studio wouldn't just hold off and release the game in July with all features in place.
