Daymare: 1998 wants to be the game of your nightdreams (or I assume it does.) And while the game took many years of development where it originally started as a remake of Resident Evil 2 — which got its own amazing remake this year — it seems we are finally going to get our hands on it. Developer Invader Studios announced on Twitter that Daymare: 1998 will release for PC on September 17th this year. Invader Studios showed off a trailer for one of the three playable characters previously this year. With their release date announcement, they have done the same here. Check it out below:
“Daymare: 1998 is a third-person survival horror with hardcore survival mechanics and hard to kill enemies. It requires a strategical approach to combat and puzzles and offers a multi-character point of view on the story, revealing a deep and obscure lore.
The scene is set with a secret research facility, a deadly chemical weapon and a special security team to investigate this incident with the potential to become much more than just a 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 deadly zone and its citizens into bloodthirsty monsters.“
Along with the new character trailer comes a free demo for players, which can be found on the Steam store page for the game on the right hand column. Simply click the “Download Demo” button and enjoy.
Daymare: 1998 will be available for PS4 and Xbox One at a later unannounced date. It will be available on Steam for $29.99. You can follow the developer on their Twitter here.
