Deadlight: Director’s Cut
In Deadlight: Director’s Cut, it’s 1986 and the world has been ravaged by a zombie outbreak. The few survivors struggle to survive, by any means necessary, amongst the remains of human civilization. You are one such survivor – Randall Wayne, an introverted and slightly paranoid young man who is searching the destroyed streets of Seattle in hopes of finding his loved ones. So far playing this gem of a game it’s been fun to pick up and play after a long day with having to get into it like you would a title such as RPG like game. The Director’s Cut edition features a number of enhancements over the original Deadlight release, including improved controls, visuals and an entirely new game mode. The game has launched on the GeForce NOW store for 15% off ($16.99) and includes a Steam digital key for PC download.
