Are you ready for a summer of death? We are already in May and soon there will be times for the beach, pool, beer… and of course excursions. The Quarry is a love letter to the slasher horror fan that made Friday the 13th so popular.
Supermassive Games is a studio specializing in horror games. They took our breath away with Until Dawn, but the various chapters of The Dark Pictures Anthology aren’t far behind either.
His new title for PlayStation, Xbox and PC will be released on June 10th. The Quarry is a slasher horror adventure with many secrets, hidden features and items to discover. For example, the movie mode allows us to enjoy the action without having to interact at all times.
In an interview with SegmentNext, the director of Supermassive detailed another secret function that we can use in The Quarry. Don’t be afraid to stumble… but take the consequences.
Will Byles explained how the “Death Rewind” mechanic works, which translates to death rewind in Spanish. As if it were a VHS tape, we can go back to specific moments in the adventure.
As in Until Dawn, The Quarry’s grace is that any character can die at the hands of the killer. Depending on which ones die (and which ones don’t), the game’s plot changes.
What does this return enable us to do? Well, basically we can use one of our lives (we’ll have three) to save a character. Of course, this will change the plot of the title forever… and there will be up to 186 different endings. Nearly nothing.
“Essentially, you get three “lives” that allow you to avoid a character’s death at the cost of using one of the lives. You are transported back to the moment you made a critical decision that resulted in the character’s death so you can make a different choice.”
How can we use death rewind? Byles explains that this feature is exclusive to those who have completed The Quarry at least once. Or, if that’s not possible, they bought the deluxe edition of the game.

In addition, Will Byles has also revealed the duration of The Quarry. As expected, the title won’t be very long with a playing time of around 10 hours. Of course it will be very replayable.
The Quarry hits stores on June 10th and is available on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One and PC available. If you like slasher horror or games like Until Dawn, no doubt you’ll have a great country summer with this 80s adventure… and scary, of course.
