Daylight Breaks Next Year on PC and PS4


Not to be confused with Techland’s parkour zombie survival game, Dying Light, or an old disaster flick of the same name in which Sylvester Stallone heroically rescues people buried under a collapsed highway tunnel as only Sly can, Daylight is a first-person psychological thriller indie developer Zombie Studios, along with the game’s publisher Atlus, has confirmed will be digitally distributed in Q1 2014 on PC and as a console exclusive for PlayStation 4.

Powered by Unreal Engine 4, Daylight is the second game Zombie Studios has announced for PS4, the first of course being Blacklight: Retribution. Using the glow of a cell phone as the only source of light (along with the occasional flare), players will awake in a creepy hospital and attempt to navigate its labyrinthine hallways as a frightened female protagonist, voiced by Jessica Chobot. It’s a horror game so you can expect to creep down plenty of dark corridors, and be scared by many bumps in the night, however, with procedurally generated levels, map layouts will never be the same and clue and ghost placement will be different every time you play..

Social connectivity will also add some novelty, spook-house fun to the PS4 version. Players will be able to stream gameplay to their friends via the console’s “share” function, and with a PlayStation 4 Eye camera hooked up the game will automatically take pictures at scare moments. If you jump or soil your trousers, it’ll be captured for all to see (if you don’t delete the evidence first).
