Those expecting to play horror game Daylight on April the 8th will unfortunately have to wait a bit longer. Not much longer fortunately, as the game has only been put back by a few weeks to April the 29th.
The reason for the delay is to make the game even scarier as developer, Zombie Studios, want to ensure all the ‘scare cues’ are perfect.
“Here’s the thing: the way Daylight is developed is completely different because of its procedural generation. In a lot of ways it really helped the team by streamlining the environment creation, but it’s taken extra time to make sure all the scare cues are properly implemented for maximum player effect…….we’re fine tuning Daylight to make it scarier.“
Daylight appears to have a lot in common with the critically acclaimed Outlast, which saw PS Plus subscribers fall into a frenzy of excitement and fear. Daylight will hope to replicate the same success of Outlast, and while Daylight won’t be FREE to PS Plus Subscribers, US gamers have confirmed the game will be at a discounted price. No word yet on whether us Brits will get it on the cheap.
Here’s a short blurb from the Official Website as to what Daylight is about.
Waking up in an abandoned hospital with only your cell phone for illumination, you explore the institution’s dark criminal past as you attempt to escape. In Daylight no two experiences are the same, and it is best played alone in the dark.
Daylight introduces gamers to a procedurally generated world that replicates the horrifying nature of Daylight over and over again, but creates a different environment for each new game. Each time the player begins a new game, they experience a new world with new content and encounters; from the layout of the building and the things they seek to the events they encounter, it is never the same experience twice.
