DAYMARE: 1998 – a thrilling third-person survival horror game will release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on 28 April 2020.
The game will be available in both digital and retail stores (PS4)
across Europe and the Americas.
After a successful release on PC last Autumn (78% on Steam), this new classic survival horror is making its way onto consoles,
delighting many gamepad-wielding fans.
Publishers Destructive Creations, All in! Games and developer Invader Studios are proud to announce the release of the console versions of their successful classic survival horror Daymare: 1998. Since the game’s three protagonists started to clean up after the incident in Hexacore’s labs, all eyes were on the contagion spreading further to other platforms. And the time is near.
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.
Daymare: 1998 will be released simultaneously across Europe and the Americas on 28 April 2020 and brought to retail stores (PS4) on the same date thanks to the publishers’ distribution partners Meridiem Games (EU) and GS2 Games (US).
“After seeing the positive feedback Daymare: 1998 has been receiving on PC, we’re excited to be able to bring this game to console players. And seeing our game on the shelves of retail stores is just a dream come true. Hope everybody will enjoy their visit to Keen Sight,” says Michele Giannone, Business Development Director of Invader Studios.

ABOUT DAYMARE: 1998 – Daymare: 1998 is a third-person survival horror game with hardcore survival mechanics and unyielding enemies. It requires a strategic approach to combat and puzzles and offers a multi-character perspective of the story, revealing deep and obscure lore.
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.
