Zombie Studios has revealed that in addition to PC, their new dynamic horror game Daylight will also be coming exclusivly to PlayStation 4.
Developer Zombie Studios (famous for the hit F2P online game Blacklight: Retribution) and publisher Atlus have released some new details regarding their procedurally-generated horror game Daylight including PlayStation 4 console-exclusivity.
The premise behind the game isn’t exactly ground-breaking: stepping into the shoes of an unknown female protagonist, players awake in an abandoned hospital and must navigate its dark, creepy halls with nothing but their cell phone which acts as both a compass and light source. The twist however lies in the game’s procedurally-generated levels; meaning no two playthroughs will be the same. Everything from the hospital’s layout to the mysteries the player must solve to the horrors they encounter will be randomized every time, ensuring plenty of terrifying replay value despite Daylight’s simple premise.
Daylight also features a script penned by famous IGN and gaming-media personality Jessica Chobot (who gamers might also recognize as Diana Allers from Mass Effect 3) as well as several PlayStation 4-exclusive features which Atlus outlined for fans:
- Using every ounce of processing power: Daylight uses Unreal Engine 4 to create an atmospheric setting with some of the most immersive graphics to date.
- Share gameplay online: Scare friends with the system's new "share" feature to stream gameplay to friends.
- Capturing the moment: Daylight uses the PS4 system's integrated PlayStation Eye camera to take pictures of the exact moment that a scare happens. Keep the pictures of the reactions as a novelty or bravely share them with friends on social networks.
- RealD 3D Support: Daylight uses the latest 3D technology from RealD to expand its haunting atmosphere into the third dimension.
No specific release date has been confirmed at this time but Zombie Studios has narrowed it down to the first quarter of 2014. When it does release, Daylight will be available for both PlayStation 4 and PC as a downloadable-only game.
