A new console cycle, a new Unreal Engine! Yep, Zombie Studio's upcoming Daylight will use the undoubtedly soon to be ubiquitous new engine to bring sheer terror to gamers next year.


Purporting to be a psychological thriller with a haunting atmosphere, the early detail have us excited. Sure, we didn't fall in love with Zombie's downloadable games last generation (Blacklight wasn't TERRIBLE per se) but nothing piques our interest quite like derelict hospitals! There is also talk of procedurally generated levels to keep the game fresh. Will it be a Survival Roguelike? Only Zombie Studios and Atlus know right now.

"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."

Promising to take great advantage of the PS4 (the only next-gen console where the game will be available), this downloadable game will feature these next-gen tricks:

Using every ounce of processing power: Daylight uses Unreal Engine 4 to create an atmospheric setting with some of the most immersive graphics to date

Share gameplay online: Scare friends with the system's new "share" feature to stream gameplay to friends.

Capturing the moment: Daylight uses the PS4 system's integrated PlayStation Eye camera to take pictures of the exact moment that a scare happens. Keep the pictures of the reactions as a novelty or bravely share them with friends on social networks.

RealD 3D Support: Daylight uses the latest 3D technology from RealD to expand its haunting atmosphere into the third dimension.

Oh, and did we mention that it is written by and stars everyone's favorite Sony fangirl Jessica Chobot? Well it is! Stick around for more details as they emerge.
