Daylight exclusive to PC and PS4, coming in early 2014

Zombie Studios' Daylight is also coming to the PlayStation 4, new publisher Atlus has announced. In addition, the console release will be exclusive to PS4. To coincide with the announcement, the publisher revealed some of the unique PS4 features we can expect to see from the spooky game when it releases in early 2014.

You'll be able to stream your game to friends on PS4, and it will support RealD 3D. It will also use the PlayStation Eye camera to snap a picture of you just when the game has a particularly potent scare, so you can embarrass yourself by showing friends what your terror-face looks like.

Daylight features procedurally-generated levels to randomize every playthrough, and is written by industry veteran Jessica Chobot, who also provides the voice of the main character. It centers around a woman who regains consciousness in an abandoned hospital with only her cell phone as a light source.

"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. 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."

      I am loving this console war, in the fight for exclusives, pc gamers are starting to get a break.

      I do like the idea of a procedurally generated horror game. Atlus has put out a few genuinely disturbing horror games over the years, so that's good too. I'm looking forward to this one.

      Zombies maybe over done but GOOD zombie games aren't. I still have a standing group of friends every Friday night we play L4D/2. Besides Telltales Walking Dead (another game which is great) I have bypassed pretty much all other zombie games. This game looks interesting though. I hope they can pull this off. I'll be following this one.

      Written by Jessica Chobot? I'm not sure how to react to that...I still have nightmares from running into her in Mass Effect 2...

        My first reaction was to bust out laughing but who knows, maybe it'll actually be good? I'm not aware of her writing anything else though, so it almost seems like hope against hope.

        I'm open to this twist, just because we honestly haven't had a single horror game or even a game with creepy bits that was created by a woman. The only thing you could possibly consider would be the Gabriel Knight games.

        It'd be interesting to see what she could come up with. With the whole game being procedurally generated, chances are it'll be heavier on atmosphere than captain obvious story elements anyhow.

        I might as well do a little flash from the past about Rule of Rose, one of the most disturbing, sinister little horror games of years past, also from Atlus:

          Quite the silent hill vibe. Any endurance type run of the game?

            There's got to be something out there, I suppose. It's pretty obscure, but it has its following. Sony's already brought back the Fatal Frame games on PSN - they should get together with Atlus and make this happen some time.

      Who's Jessica Chobot and why should we care that she's writing this? Gotta love it when writers assume a certain level of knowledge that wouldn't be necessarily realistic among their readers. I think many of us are fairly hardcore gamers but honestly I also doubt that many of us pay attention to who is writing stuff, either. I know I don't (usually).
