The Resident Evil 2 inspired Daymare 1998 has just landed on Steam, leaving PlayStation 4 and Xbox One loyalists to watch on from afar with green eyes of envy as they await its release date on their consoles of choice.
For fans of survival horror games from the 90s, Daymare 1998 is a wonderful tribute. It initially started out as a fan remake of Resident Evil 2, but it has since become its own commodity.
And PS4 and Xbox One gamers will soon be able to experience the nostalgic rush for themselves.

What is Daymare 1998?
Daymare 1998 isn't for everyone as Wccftech have described it as a boring and unimaginative affair that brings nothing new to the 90s survival horror genre.
The Sixth Axis has also echoed complaints about its clunky controls, but gamers over on Steam have been mostly positive as of writing.
Just in case you need a reminder as to what Daymare 1998 is exactly, it's a third-person survival horror shooter with plenty of puzzles and bloodthirsty enemies.
You can tell it's an inspired tribute to Resident Evil 2 when its main attraction is being a 1990s survival horror ode with puzzles, third-person combat and a multi-character point-of-view narrative.
Not only that, but it also features plenty of backtracking with players needing to manage their inventory, items and ammo in order to stay alive.
Daymare 1998 was intended to be a Resident Evil 2 fan remake back in 2015, but Capcom forced the Reborn project to be cancelled thanks to reasons that are now obvious (i.e. they were creating their own Resident Evil 2 Remake).
Daymare 1998 release date for PS4 and Xbox One
The Resident Evil 2 inspired Daymare 1998 is now available on Steam for £22.49 (10% off full retail price until September 24th).
News of it coming to PS4 and Xbox One first appeared in February with developer Invader Studios having announced console ports with fixed camera mode.
