Developer Firesprite Games have announced that their PlayStation VR title The Persistence will launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC this summer.
The Persistence is a sci-fi horror first-person shooter that we loved when we reviewed it back in 2018. The non-VR version will be available digitally on all platforms and publisher Perp Games will be handling a retail release as well. Those who own the PlayStation VR version will get the non-VR version on PS4 via a free update.
The Persistence offers players a brutal take on survival-horror that integrates an innovative rogue-like design into the genre, with its forthcoming console and PC release marking the first time this chilling experience has hit the 4K flat screen.
In The Persistence, players are tasked with surviving on board a doomed deep space colony starship in the year 2521. Said ship is overrun with horrific and murderous aberrations that make their presence known as players explore, evade and fight their way through the depths of an ever-changing labyrinth to bring the ship back to Earth.
By taking the original virtual reality release and adding support for flatscreen play, this fresh version of The Persistence heightens the tension thanks to enhanced environments and post-processing effects, all working seamlessly with tailored UI and controls. Firesprite Games is also pleased to announce that gamers who already own the PlayStation VR version will also receive these features via an update on PlayStation 4 for no extra cost.
