Daylight hits Windows PC and PS4 in April

New, 4 comments

Zombie Studios' horror game Daylight will launch on Windows PC and PlayStation 4 in April, studio director Jarred Gerritzen mentioned in an IGN video walkthrough.

Previously, the Unreal Engine 4-powered game's release on Windows PC and PS4 was only known as "early 2014." Daylight places users in the role of a character who wakes up in an abandoned hospital. Equipped only with a dying smartphone and its flashlight and compass, players must navigate their way through the hostile environment. You can learn more about the title's gameplay and environment from our hands-on impressions at E3 2013.

The developer announced late last year that its procedurally generated horror game will support the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset. We got hands-on with the title and an Oculus Rift dev kit during last year's Indiecade in Culver City, Calif. Daylight's relatively slower pace and minimal combat makes it an optimal game for the VR headset, according to Gerritzen, compared to faster games like Zombie's first-person shooter Blacklight: Retribution.
