Daylight gets PC and PlayStation 4 release window

Monday, 17th February 2014 02:35 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Daylight is coming to PC and PlayStation 4 in just a few months, scratching that procedurally-generated horror itch you didn’t even know you had.

The release window comes via an IGN preview, which gives an April launch for both platforms.

Daylight is an Unreal Engine 4 title from Zombie Studios, the developer of Blacklight: Retribution (also available on PS4) and the Saw games, as well numerous Spec Ops titles.

Players explore an abandoned sanitarium, armed not with semi-automatic weapons but with a single mobile phone, which is used as a map and a light source – and occasionally behaves oddly.

Levels are procedurally-generated, which means you’ll never know what’s around the next corner.

Thanks, Gematsu.

    I really dislike procedural generation generally.. not just in this but ALL games.. they might add replayability but they also seem so boring and generic.

    Give me handcrafted ANY day of the week.. even if it means only playing it once ”cos I’ve seen it all’

    @Tormenter Couldn’t agree more. Well scripted and excited stories are so much better than random generated stuff (non stories)…
