As we all know, it was originally the RE2 Remake fan project before Capcom appreciated the efforts and took the initiative to officially remake RE2. Even Capcom supports the team by mentioning the team in RE2 HD credits! So, the hype and appreciation from RE fans and new horror fans is growing day by day.
Get ready for the dark adventure in Keen Sight.
EU and the Americas will also offer PS4 retail versions.
More information about the game:
DAYMARE: 1998 is a third person survival horror with hardcore survival mechanics, hard to kill enemies, strategical approach to combat and puzzles, with a multi-character point of view on the story, and a deep and obscure lore. A secret research facility, a deadly chemical weapon and three people who play crucial roles in finding the truth about an incident with a potential to become more than just a security breach. Follow the steps of an elite soldier, a helicopter pilot and a forest ranger, as they become the main characters in an event that transforms one peaceful small town into a deadly zone and its citizens into bloodthirsty monsters. Make sure to take them down first, before looking for clues and evidence to bring more sense to the mess. Keep track of your itinerary, as resources are scarce in a situation like this! And anything can happen when your daymares become real…
All fans of the 90s’ iconic cinematographic brands and classical gloomy survival horror games will be thrilled, seeing how DAYMARE: 1998 recreates the atmosphere of the most beloved works from the end of the millennium and places a typical yet fresh story in the middle of it. The plot unfolds through the eyes of various characters, putting players in the shoes of different personalities that will guide them through their theories and doubts about the situation. Backtracking, managing ammo, collecting lore items, solving environmental puzzles and the overall difficulty will help players jump a couple decades back and get chilled to the bone in their first real daymare.
