Deadlight was a bit of a hit and miss experience when it launched back in 2013. I personally loved it as it reminded me of Shadow Complex in a much darker, zombie-filled world. It also had a fantastic story with a twist that I did not see coming at all.
Platforming gameplay and some cool, however simple, puzzles filled the bits between the action and a mention must go to the art style of the cutscenes which were fantastic throughout. The game sadly didn’t do as well as it could have, but it is still getting an updated version for the new consoles so if you missed it previously now is your chance to give it a go.
The new version will include a Survival Mode which, as you might expect, makes the game a lot harder with limited ammo and a supposedly more reactive world to play in. The trailer below shows off some of this Survival Mode and it does look a lot more brutal. Definitely something to try on the second playthrough I would think.
Deadlight Director’s Cut releases 21 June and the trailer can be viewed below.
