Daylight Out Today on PS4

John Hardin's Avatar Posted by 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.

Was looking forward to this, but the initial reviews say it’s not a very good game. Too bad…

any other systems for this game?

Old_PopTarts said:

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.

what time when daylight start midnight or later afternoon?

NanoNekomata said:

April 29th, 10:35 am

Why isn’t this on the store yet? It’s almost 2PM here, that’s kinda ridiculous.

bloodsuka5 said:

April 29th, 10:42 am

1:40 eastern time. Still waiting…………

RISE_UP44 said:

Very cool, can’t wait to download.

Husteen said:

April 29th, 11:07 am

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.

DigitalSpooker said:

April 29th, 11:07 am

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…

xRadGameR said:

April 29th, 11:11 am

Why isn’t this out in the PS store yet?

#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 said:

April 29th, 11:34 am

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.

doonaner said:

April 29th, 11:36 am

@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

EverythingOnFire said:

April 29th, 11:40 am

@31 John Hardin: Thanks for letting us know, man!

PS- Here’s to hoping that a lot more of us consumers can gain a little patience next time around.

DigitalSpooker said:

April 29th, 11:41 am

@31 is it showing you the discounted ps+ price? It won’t for me

MikeyBoy02NY02 said:

April 29th, 11:42 am

#20 Must be a 5 year old who can’t handle an awesome horror suspense game, What a immature kid

RoidedMonster said:

April 29th, 11:49 am

I am ps plus member, but was still charged 11.99 ..though the article stated otherwise (9.59)

trevsack said:

April 29th, 11:55 am

RoidedMonster said:

April 29th, 11:58 am

#38 I downloaded it so it is up, might have to restart your system.. however I don’t think the ps plus price deduction has been added yet.. good luck

DigitalSpooker said:

April 29th, 12:00 pm

39 – not showing on my system either, even after a reboot, I can see it if I go to the store through my phone though

Looking into the pricing disparity.

RoidedMonster said:

April 29th, 12:02 pm

interesting, it will not let me see it now, even after i downloaded it, unless i go specifically to games section of store and literally type into the search on top of screen “daylight”.. hope this helps

MTRichardson01 said:

April 29th, 12:07 pm

its up but i have one question about it. Why is it not showing the Plus Price with it?

DanQ8000 said:

April 29th, 12:07 pm

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.

RoidedMonster said:

April 29th, 12:14 pm

# 45 I couldn’t wait for the pricing update lol, I just spent the extra two dollars =) .. but good to hear its updated, thnx #41

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.
