Upcoming virtual reality (VR) compatible horror title Daylight has had its release date pushed back by a few weeks. The Zombie Studios-developed project was originally due to arrive on 8th April 2014, but will now be hitting on 29th April instead. The team reasoned that is needed just a little more time to fine tune the first-person experience, which features support for the Oculus Rift VR headset on PC.
“Let’s not mince words,” the developer noted. “First news you need to know about Daylight is that we had to delay the release date by several weeks. Here’s the thing: the way Daylight is developed is completely different because of its procedural generation. In a lot of ways it really helped the team by streamlining the environment creation, but it’s taken extra time to make sure all the scare cues are properly implemented for maximum player effect.
“Tl;dr: we’re fine tuning Daylight to make it scarier.”
The title is also due out on PlayStation 4, though there’s been no mention on if the studio would be interested in integrating support for the Project Morpheus PS4 VR headset down the line. The new release date puts Daylight at just under 4 weeks away from release now. VRFocus will continue to follow the title’s progress and report back with all the latest.
