Liverpool based developers Firesprite Games are bringing The Persistence exclusively to PS4 and PlayStation VR.
The Persistence is a procedurally generated first person stealth horror game set in the year 2521. It takes place on board a deep space scientific vessel named The Persistence. While conducting a major experiment at the site of a collapsing star 17,000 light years from earth a horrific incident occurs mutating many of the crew. As The Persistence is pulled into the gravity of the collapsing star, the ship’s computer, ‘IRIS’ wakes remaining members of the crew from cryogenic sleep – one at a time. Will you be able to survive long enough to save The Persistence?
Dying isn’t an issue though as every time you die and a new character is awoken by IRIS and because it is procedurally generated the layout of the ship changes so every life will play out differently, with different enemies to face, items to find and power-ups to collect. Your friends can also help out by connecting to the game with their phone or tablet and hacking into the ship’s computer. Once in the ship’s system, players get to control doors, freeze or distract enemies, disable traps and find hidden items to scavenge for the PSVR player. Be aware though, sometimes the tablet player gets rewarded if you die, do you trust your friends?
Check out the trailer and screenshots below.
We’ll bring you more news as we get it.
