Gris, A Soulful Indie Platformer, Hits PS4 This Week
It'll be upscaled on PS4 Pro, too.
Gris, which first launched on PC and Switch back in December 2018 and came to iOS earlier this year, is getting a surprise release on PlayStation on November 26 (or November 27, depending on your time zone). The impending release was announced on the PlayStation Blog, where programmer Roger Mendoza detailed what is different about Gris on PS4. Essentially, it'll be the same game but with higher quality assets.
The team at Nomada Studio wanted to create "the absolute best version of Gris possible," and to that end the art team went over the game again to prepare it for 4K displays. According to the post, the art team has "revamped over five thousand unique assets", increasing the resolution by up to four times. This resolution bump will be possible for anyone playing the game on a PS4 Pro. The game's score will also be less compressed for the PS4 version of the game.
This version of the game will also receive a physical release from Limited Run Games. The boxed copy costs $30, and pre-orders are open for the next five weeks. It comes with three reversible art cards and interior case art.
Gris received a 9/10 in our review of it, with Tom Mc Shea writing that Gris "understands intrinsically how magical video games can be and continually pushes your imagination until you’re almost bursting with joy." Earlier this month, the game made headlines after a wellness app was found to have plagarized artwork from it.
