'Daymare: 1998' (ALL) Available For Pre-Order On Console

Daymare: 1998 is a hardcore survival horror experience inspired by the visual style and the atmosphere evoked by cult movies of the 1990s.

Daymare: 1998 is a third-person survival horror game with hardcore survival mechanics and hard-to-kill enemies. It requires a strategic approach to combat and conundrums 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 tasked with investigating an incident which has the potential to become much more than just 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 and evidence that you can piece together to make sense of the chaos. Keep track of your itinerary, as resources will be scarce! Anything can happen when your daymares become real.

Fans of the iconic films and classical dark survival horror games of the '90s will be thrilled, seeing how Daymare: 1998 recreates the atmosphere of the most beloved works from the end of the millennium and places a familiar 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. Thanks to backtracking, managing ammo, collecting lore items, solving environmental puzzles and the overall level of difficulty, players can rewind a couple of decades back where, in their first real daymare, they will be chilled to the bone.

Inspired by the terrifying experiences of  true 1990’s survival horror games, Invader Studios believe their own  take on modern gameplay mechanics fits perfectly with the old school survival horror atmosphere they love. 

Daymare: 1998 is available for pre-order on the Microsoft Store.

Daymare: 1998 will also be available in retail stores as boxed edition for PS4 across Europe and the Americas, although the original simultaneous release date of 28 April 2020 is endangered due to the current Covid-19 situation. The publishers’ distribution partners Meridiem Games (EU) and GS2 Games (US) will keep on doing their best in getting the boxes to the customers as close to the planned release date as possible.

But the Daymare: 1998 Black Edition, which features special packaging and extra content in the form of sticker arts, characters’ cards and collectable pins (at selected retailers only) will sure be worth the wait..
