The next generation just got a little scarier, thanks to Atlus.
The publisher has announced Daylight , a psychological thriller built using the Unreal Engine 4. In development at Zombie Studios, the game is scheduled to release in early 2014 for the PlayStation 4 and PC in digital format. Yes, it's a console exclusive, Sony peeps.
According to the press release, "only the bravest souls will find all the messages and clues scattered through Daylight 's labyrinthine twists of derelict hospital corridors and other creepy environments." The levels are "procedurally generated," which means that no two play-throughs will be identical. The story was written by industry veteran Jessica Chobot, who also provides the terrified voice of the main character. Said studio director Jared Gerritzen:
"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. 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 take advantage of the PS4's features, as players will be able to share gameplay online, and they can use the PlayStation Eye camera to snap pictures of the freakiest moments. The game will also support RealD 3D. To learn more, check out the official website .
