Daylight Out Today on PS4

John Hardin's Avatar + Posted by John Hardin on Apr 29, 2014 // PR Manager, ATLUS

“They moved the afflicted to this place where you stand. They thought it would protect and leave them to grow. Then came Corruption, Persecution… and Chaos.” — Dr. Mercer

Dark corridors? Check. Creepy sounds of death and terror? Check. Ominous quote with heavy implication that you’re probably somewhere you shouldn’t be? Double check! Daylight, the new horror game from Zombie Studios (Blacklight Retribution) and ATLUS, launches today for PS4!

This procedurally generated, first-person survival-horror game (say that ten times fast) puts you in the shoes of Sarah Gwynn — a girl who mysteriously wakes up in the abandoned Mid Island Hospital. Exits throughout areas of the hospital are sealed off with rune inscribed doors that can only be opened with unique relics. Each relic ties into the facility’s dark past, but they will only appear once you’ve uncovered enough of Mid Island’s sadistic history. Sounds easy enough, right? Oh yeah, just watch out for those evil, revenge-driven witches stalking your every move… Remember — light is your friend!

What is “procedurally generated,” you ask? In a nutshell, no two playthroughs will be identical. The game deviously analyzes your play style to ensure evil spirits execute maximum fright potential. Even better, the level design changes as well. Don’t worry, you’ll always have your trusty cell phone with a helpful free navigation app to keep you on track. Grab a couple of glow sticks, some mighty flares, bandages, and you’re ready to rock!

Daylight’s variable nature is taken a step further with Twitch users. The game taps into the chat channel of your stream and viewers can type keywords to cue in-game events. For example, typing “meow” into the Twitch chat would make the game generate the sound of a cat. We’re not giving out the list of keywords though; you’ll have to find those out for yourself. So hop on to various channels and find new ways to scare the pants off of your buddies!

Oh, and because we want to see you all scaring yourselves silly, we made Daylight just $9.59 for PS+ subscribers ($11.99 for non-Plus users) until 5/13. After that, Daylight will return to its regular price of $14.99.

I’m definitely downloading this when I get home. It was a BRILLIANT idea for Sony to make Outlast a free PS+ game. I’m absolutely buying the DLC for Outlast and to satiate my appetite until that releases I am purchasing this game. Sony, these games are what I want for sure. I LOVE horror games. These are games that you can play with the gf/wife and she doesn’t mind watching. It’s like watching a horror movie. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, stay on top of ANY horror game you can bring to the PS4. Ported from PC, new, I don’t care. Just keep em’ coming.

this game looks really cool, but… i get scared easily 0_0
i like that it’s on sale on launch day.

and the store updates at around 2PM pacific time, but it’s not uncommon for it to be later than that. i always check the S.E.N. online store because parts of the store, usually the whole store, will update before the notes are posted here.

11:06am, and is still not listed on the us psn store, you can’t day it’s out on ps4, when wr can’t buy it…

#20. Was that really necessary? I fully agree with John. Next time, try not posting at all. I’m looking forward to this, as well as many others. I can’t wait to play this tonight. Thank you Zombie Studios and Atlus for bringing this to the PS4. I hope to see more from you :D

+ MrGoodkat23 on April 29th, 2014 at 11:34 am said:

its not really fair to say that it is out when we cant download it. maybe update the marketplace at like 1 am? that would be very convenient for people excited to buy the game as soon as they can.


33

+ doonaner on April 29th, 2014 at 11:36 am said:

@32. Fully agree been waiting awhile for this game and its 11:35 pacific time still not able to download it for PS4. Yet you can download on steam for PC

45

+ DanQ8000 on April 29th, 2014 at 12:07 pm said:

I’m downloading the game now. The PS Plus price adjusted and everything. You need to select the game first and then it will apply it when you hit Download.

Just finished Outlast last night because this game was coming out today! I’m loving these indie horror games coming to PS4 and I can’t get enough of them! Outlast was BRILLIANT and Daylight looks to be just as amazing! Picking up Outlast: Whistleblower next week as well! Hoping for DLC to Daylight as well as sequels, prequels, or anything of the sort for Daylight and Outlast both in addition to other indie horror games! I have never been the biggest indie gamer but these indie horror games have got me HOOKED!!

I’ll probably buy it just to support Zombie since they gave us Blacklight for free.
