I think I've seen a tweet where they say they're not going in a direction of day/night because of processing power. Maybe the rain and everything is along the same lines? I know they want to make the game accessible to as many people as possible.
That said, I would love to see some rain at least. Dark, rainy night with a bolt of thunder every once in a while would be awesomely immersive!
I hope someone with more info can chime in.
Not having day/night makes sense, considering most of the action in F13 takes place at night. [though a late afternoon to late night cycle would be appreciated, I totally understand the tech limitations.]
That being said, at least variants of the maps with rain would be hugely appreciated... though I know at that point you have to change shaders to look wet and all. And transitioning from outside[wet] to inside [dry] might be a tough thing to pull off.
Still, again, would be awesome... I'm not exactly fimilar with Illphonic and Gun Media's prior track record with games, so I can't really attest to their dev skill. It's just one of those small aspects to Friday the 13th that adds to it's immersion factor, and is kinda a major part of the franchise.
There's a legend around here, a killer buried, but not dead.
Equestria Girls: Legend of the Everfree better have a Jason Cameo in the background somewhere.
