PS4 Getting Acclaimed Stealth Game République Next Year
All five episodes coming in one package to the PlayStation Store.
République is a stealth game in which you assist a young woman named Hope to escape from a totalitarian state. You help to guide her around from the perspective of surveillance cameras, interacting with the environment in various ways to keep her out of danger. GungHo says in this version "players finally take full control of Hope," suggesting you'll have more of a direct effect on things when playing on PS4.
Republique is developed by Camouflaj, a studio headed up by Metal Gear Solid 4 producer Ryan Payton. It began as a Kickstarter game back in 2012 and was originally slated to only release on mobile platforms. When it looked as if that wouldn't attract enough money to reach its goal, Camouflaj decided to also bring it to PC, helping the crowdfunding campaign to ultimately raise $555,000.
"Having been so inspired by early PlayStation titles, it's with much joy and a touch of irony that the full République experience will arrive on PS4," Payton said of today's announcement. "I can't thank GungHo enough for supporting our efforts to faithfully translate République into a true console experience."
The first three episodes of Republique have already been released on PC and mobile, with two more episodes still to come. When it launches on PS4--where it'll be available on the PlayStation Store--the game will consist of all five episodes. A price was not announced, but the existing PC version goes for $25.
