Pre E3: Psychological Horror Title ‘Daylight’ Announced For PS4
Zombie Studios is teaming up with Atlus USA to publish their first-person psychological horror title Daylight for the PlayStation 4.
Originally announced as a PC exclusive, players will take on the role of a woman who wakes up in the middle of the night to find herself in the heart of an abandoned hospital with no memory of how she got there. Featuring no weapons and no way to fight back, the only tool at your disposal is your cellphone which doubles as your only light source.
With a script written by gaming media personality Jessica Chobot and powered by Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 4, Daylight features procedurally generated environments, meaning “no two experiences are the same,” according to Zombie Studios. Everything, from the layout of the hospital to the placement of clues, will change each time you start a new game.
In a press release from Atlus, the game will support the latest 3D technology from RealD and offer a “share” feature to stream gameplay to friends allowing you to “scare them.” It also makes use of the PS Eye camera to take pictures of scare moments which can also be shared.
This is the second PlayStation 4 title coming from the Seattle-based developer. Shortly after the console’s debut it was confirmed that free-to-play online shooter, Blacklight: Retribution, would grace its launch line-up.
Daylight will a download-only game for both PS4 and PC, and will be released sometime in the first quarter of 2014.
