[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource Games Press.]

The full release on both console platforms (PS4™ and Xbox One) is scheduled for 28 April, while pre-orders both in digital (Xbox One) and in retail (PS4™) are underway.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – April 3rd, Gliwice, Poland

Publisher Destructive Creations and developer Invader Studios are looking forward to satisfying the fans who have been awaiting the game’s appearance on consoles since its PC release in Autumn. Even though the success of Daymare: 1998, as a survival horror with classic mechanics and the feel of the 90s, might be overshadowed by some more ambitious titles, the work that the indie team has put into game has been highly appreciated by the survival horror community.

Daymare: 1998 is available on Microsoft Store:


Daymare: 1998 will also be available in retail stores as boxed edition for PlayStation®4 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..

With the support of our partner SteelSeries, manufacturer of quality gaming peripherals, a special promotion for Daymare: 1998 PS4™ and Xbox One is being prepared. Fans are advised to watch social media channels of both partners to find out more when the time comes (Twitter @SteelSeries,

Microsoft Store:


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.


  • Multi-character POV – see the story from different angles and discover the truth;
  • Fearsome enemies – rendered in detail with lifelike animations and dismemberment;
  • Realistic HUD – check your inventory, health, and the position of a given piece of equipment;
  • Environmental puzzles – finding your way around is not always easy, so look for clues;
  • Classic mechanics – limited ammo and save points, backtracking, collectibles, tough enemies, and more;
  • Modern graphics and effects – not everything is old-school, thanks to Unreal Engine 4;
  • Experience the 90s – the game is an homage to the era, with tons of references.
More information about the game can be found on the official website, Facebook, and Twitter.
