Daylight delayed to April 29, gets promotional pricing

Zombie Studios' procedurally generated horror game Daylight has been delayed. According to publisher Atlus, "it's taken extra time to make sure all the scare cues are properly implemented for maximum player effect." As a result, the game is being pushed by a few weeks to April 29th for PC and PlayStation 4.

However, as a result of the delay, the game will have promotional pricing at launch. On PC, you'll be able to pre-order the game for $9.99. On PS4, PlayStation Plus members will be able to get the game for $9.99 for two weeks, while everyone else will be able to grab it for $11.99. The game will go for $14.99 normally.

Lord of the Rings-themed MOBA Guardians of Middle-Earth started out as a console-friendly take on the popular PC genre. And now, it's coming back home. Warner Bros and Monolith announced today that GoME is coming to PC on August 29.
