Clue Location Bonus:
Whenever you view a clue you will be able to read more backstory. Clues not only give information about the story they also are sometimes able to change the plot.
In total there are 77 Clue Locations in the game and collecting them ALL will unlock the following trophies.
‘The Tale of The Two Sisters’ Gold Trophy is unlocked when the group find ALL the clues from the Twins Clueline.
‘The Fateful Descent’ Gold Trophy is unlocked when the group find ALL the clues from the 1952 Clueline.
‘You Opened Their Eyes’ Gold Trophy is unlocked when the group find ALL the clues from the Mystery Man Clueline.
Perfect QTE’s and Target Shots:
Use the following trick to get perfect QTE’s and hit every Target Shot when you mess them up. If you exit the ap and press the ‘PS’ button immediately you do so and then reload the game you will get (most times) another chance at it. This will allow you to make sure everyone survives to be rescued at the end of the game.
You can gain early access to an extra chapter in the game before it becomes a paid DLC in October 2014 by buying the ‘Until Dawn – Extended Edition’. To get this edition you must pre-order ‘Until Dawn’. In the Extended Edition you will see Matt and Emily, a new couple, out on the mountain who begin to suspect they are not alone there…
Ensure all eight friends survive to view the best ending, which inclues a secret scene at the very end. You will also get “The Quicker Man”, “They All Live”, “Four Daughters Of Darkness”, and “Don’t Scare Jessica To Death” trophies with the best ending. Complete the following tasks to ensure all eight characters are alive at the end of the story:
Josh: Find “The Twins” clues so that he will recognize his sister’s tattoo. Do not worry when he dies during the saw blade scene in Episode 4, as this does not matter.
Jessica: After she gets dragged out of the cabin, Mike must catch up to her as quickly as possible. Always use the riskiest paths and slide down the hill at the end. You will not hear from Jessica until Episode 9 in the mines. Always hide with her when given the choice; do not try to run away from your attackers.
Matt: To save Matt, you should not attack the deer and avoid helping Emily when she’s hanging off the tower (jump away from her instead). Later in the mines, you should always hide together with Jessica when given the choice. Do not run away from your attackers.
Emily: Do not make a mistake during her QTEs, and do not shoot her in the Episode 8 safe room.
Ashley: When you must choose between her and Josh (saw blades), choose to sacrifice Josh. Later in Episode 9, do not investigate the noise in the mines with her. Stay with the rest of the group.
Chris: When he gets the gun and is told to either kill himself or shoot Ashley with it, you must choose to shoot yourself (the gun only fires blanks — so you will be safe). Do not even aim at Ashley. Then, Ashley will open the door for him when he gets chased by the Wendigo in Episode 8. Do not make a mistake during his QTEs during Chapter 8.
Sam: She cannot die until the final set of cutscenes. Just complete all her QTEs at the end of Episode 10 without making a mistake.
Mike: He cannot die until the final set of cutscenes. Just complete all his QTEs at the end of Episode 10 without making a mistake. When Sam has to choice to either hit the light switch or help Mike (end of Episode 10), you must choose to help Mike.
