The Death Rewind System allows you to roll back to where the decision you made led to that character’s death. These can be just a few minutes before, such as if you fail a number of Quicktime events, or hours in the past where a dialogue choice ultimately led to the demise you just witnessed.

The Quarry’s Death Rewind system allows you to reverse time and go back to the previous decision which led to the character’s death you just witnessed.

These can be any significant dialogue option or one of the choices you make that changed the paths in the game. As some deaths happen hours after the choices you make, the game will rewind you back to that point in the game, even if it is multiple chapters in the past.

Once this is done, you will be forced to play through the game again from the point you have returned to. You cannot use chapter select or skip back forward and have the decision take effect.

Supermassive is working on an update which will make these warnings much clearer so players don’t find themselves losing out on hours of progress. However, there isn’t a timeframe yet for when this update will arrive.
