After its successful launch on PC late last year, publishers Destructive Creations, All in! Games and developer Invader Studios have announced their classically inclined survival horror game Daymare: 1998 will soon be headed to home consoles!
The official press release promises: "Slipgate Studios, the publishers’ and developer’s major partner for porting of Daymare: 1998, worked hard to bring this title to both major console platforms in the best quality possible, not sacrificing anything from the original PC version. Already built to be played with a controller, the gameplay feel is natural and responsive, as required for some third-person action among a horde of bloodthirsty monsters."
The game will be released on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 simultaneously across Europe and the Americas on April 28th, 2020.
In Daymare: 1998, the scene is set with a secret research facility, a deadly chemical weapon, and a special security team tasked with investigating an incident with the potential to become more than a routine security breach. Follow the steps of an elite soldier, a helicopter pilot, and a forest ranger as they play out their roles in an event that transforms one peaceful small town into a dead-zone and its citizens into bloodthirsty monsters. Take the creatures down first, and then look for any clues or evidence that you can piece together to make sense of the chaos. Keep track of your inventory, as resources will be scarce! Anything can happen when your daymares become real.
