Daylight delayed until the end of April

Daylight, the upcoming procedurally-generated horror title developed by Blacklight: Retribution’s Zombie Studios and written by IGN personality Jessica Chobot, has been delayed from its original April 8 PC and PlayStation 4 release date to April 29.

According to publisher Atlus, the decision to delay Daylight was made to ensure the game is as scary as possible: “It's taken extra time to make sure all the scare cues are properly implemented for maximum player effect." In the meantime, Atlus is offering a special pre-order discount on the game and has also released some new game assets and details to help fans cope with the longer wait.

Once players venture through the decrepit hospital and spooky forest areas, they’ll wind up back in an altered version of the hospital that doesn’t look decrepit at all; in fact, it looks brand new. Players will have to figure out just what the heck is going on for themselves once the game launches but for now they'll have to make do watching the new “Somebody’s Watching” trailer:

The PC Steam version of Daylight can currently be pre-ordered for $9.99, and will revert to its standard $14.99 once it launches. The PlayStation 4 version will be available to download for $9.99 to PlayStation Plus members during the first two weeks after its launch and $11.99 for non-Plus members. Once the two weeks are up, it will go back to being $14.99 for everyone.
