Indie horror game Daylight coming to PS4

Atlus publishing Zombie Studios' psychological horror game on PC and PlayStation early next year.

Zombie Studios' psychological horror game Daylight will launch on PC and PlayStation 4 in early 2014, publisher Atlus announced today.

Daylight is powered by Epic Games' Unreal Engine 4. In the game, players wake up in an abandoned hospital and only have their cell phone for illumination.

The game features procedurally generated environments, meaning "no two experiences are the same," according to Zombie Studios.

Daylight is not the only game from Zombie Studios headed to PS4. The company's free-to-play shooter Blacklight: Retribution is coming to the system as the first game from Sony's Pub Fund for the PS4.

Don't know really know anything about this game but I will say the only way we are going to decent horror games these days are through indies.  ...Probably going to be better than RE7 or Dead Space 4  :P

From what I saw, it looks like it could be scary fun, and maybe I'm expecting more than I should, but the game visually looks like current-gen stuff. They didn't show much of it, so I guess I'll have to wait and see the final game.

Oh snap, I remember when gamespot did a feature on top horror games, and I believe this was on the list. Hell if we can get even half of those on consoles I will be happy. What I would give for Amensia on ps or xbox.

I'm so happy to see more indie and horror titles hit the PS4 and Vita. Sony is doing all the right things, right now and I hope they continue to do the right thing all the way to the PS4's launch. #PS4NoDRM!!!

Looks interesting enough but I've never been a fan of randomly generated maps (or "procedurally generated" or whatever the correct term is).

@watchuwad That is some sloppy troll work. I'm sure you can do better than that, c'com man.
