Announced earlier in the year for PC, Blacklight developer Zombie Studios has today revealed that their yet-to-be-released Unreal Engine 4 horror title Daylight will be making its way to the next-gen PlayStation 4 alongside a PC release.
With a very big emphasis on using the "Unreal Engine 4 to create an atmospheric setting with some of the most immersive graphics to date," Daylight has secured a publishing deal with ATLUS for worldwide delivery.
Daylight is told in the first-person perspective and begins with players regaining consciousness in an abandoned hospital with only a cell phone to use as a source of light. The ominous atmosphere, powered by Unreal Engine 4 gives players the immediate feeling that they need to escape. But since each level is procedurally generated, no clues, haunted corridors, life-saving flares or lurking specter will ever be in the same place twice. Daylight was written by industry veteran Jessica Chobot, who also provides the quavering, terrified voice of the protagonist.
"Since showing off a pre-alpha build of Daylight at PAX East the attention on the project has grown tremendously! With the gained attention, we were approached with the opportunity to partner with ATLUS to help release Daylight worldwide on Steam and exclusively to the PlayStation 4 system," said Jared Gerritzen, studio director, Zombie Studios. "ATLUS has a long history of great games and is an accomplished publisher with worldwide reach. Working with them will allow us to reach a global audience, so we'll be able to scare even more people."
Daylight will release in early 2014 simultaneously for the PC and as a console exclusive for the PlayStation 4. A price has yet to be determined.
