If there’s one trope about horror I’ll never understand, it’s people skulking around abandoned hospitals. At best, you’ll find a bunch of old patient files and rusty equipment. At worst, you’ll be faced with pants-soiling supernatural horror that will leave you a gibbering heap in a filthy hallway.
Atlus and Zombie Studios’ upcoming Daylight falls squarely into the latter camp (although I would be greatly amused by a game that has you clucking your tongue at the poor clerical skills of the hospital’s absentee administration), giving you a procedurally-generated traipse through a crusty clinic, relentlessly pursued by something. The trailer shows off some survival-slanted gameplay that may not look like it’s pushing the Playstation 4 to its limits, but could be quite capable of some shocks and shivers nonetheless.
Daylight will be released “early 2014” for Playstation 4 and PC.
