Horror title Daylight has been given release date for April 8th for PlayStation 4 and PC. Zombie Studios has provided more details to us today explaining new PS4 integrations and also a hint that the company is adapting the game onto a consumer VR system.
The PlayStation 4 and PC version of Daylight will be fully 3D compatible out of the box! 3D-enabled TVs and monitors will bring the scares, jumps and all other things that haunt the Mid Island area to life in a very tangible way. RealD3D is the same technology they use in movie theaters for 3D movies and excels at giving the game terrific depth-of-field. Catching an overhead light flicker down an incredibly long corridor is one of the more chilling 3D applications…until you come across a spirit, that is. If you have the means, we highly recommend giving this mode a try. Oh and rumor has that Daylight may be adapted to a consumer VR system in the near future, for those brave enough.
PS4 Multimedia Integration:
This is a very cool feature that we’re super stoked about. It’s no secret that Daylight is extremely friendly for the PS4’s “Share” button (ditto, PC streaming). The tinkerers at Zombie Studios found a way to use Twitch chat to cue in-game events. The example we’ve been tossing around (and is in no way final) is that someone watching a stream types the word “Meow” into the chat, which causes the game to make a corresponding sound of a cat. So yes. You can literally scare your friends now by watching the stream.
There are two caveats to this:
- They’re all on timers, so you can’t spam them. That would be ridiculous.
- We’re not going to tell you the list of words. You’re going to have to find them through experimentation.
We are still awaiting confirmation of pricing for Daylight locally here in Australia. Daylight will be available on the PlayStation Store for PS4 and Steam on PC.
