Thatgamecompany have emerged from development slumber and a new blog post has appeared on the Playstation blog that announces the release date and pricing of Journey on PSN.
We have been expecting this news ever since thatgamecompany tweeted that development on Journey was over and the game was complete, finito. We previously reported that Journey was coming to PSN in March after reading the news in the latest issue of Game Informer, but we didn’t have any confirmation outside of that. That has now changed.
Jot this down in your diaries – you need to jump on to PSN on March 13th (14th in the EU, 15th in Japan) with a spare $14.99 to purchase Journey.
Like Flower three years prior, Journey will be kicking off PSN’s Spring Fever event. The developers describe Journey as an “experience like no other”. There’s a pretty summary of the game along with the announcement too:
“You wake alone and surrounded by miles of burning, sprawling desert, and soon discover the looming mountaintop which is your goal. Faced with rolling sand dunes, age-old ruins, caves and howling winds, your passage will not be an easy one. The goal is to get to the mountaintop, but the experience along the way is discovering who you are, what this place is, and what your purpose is. Travel and explore this ancient, mysterious world alone, or with a stranger you meet along the way. Soar above ruins and glide across sands as you discover the secrets of a forgotten civilization.”
We’ll be in there, though due to the anonymity of the strangers you meet in Journey, you won’t know it’s us. Just how we like it.
You can find out more information on Journey over on the official website.
