Lone Survivor is making a break for PS3 and Vita this summer, featuring two new locations and sidequests, new NPC dialogue, more than 20 fresh items, and a new ending, all initially exclusive to Sony consoles. Lone Survivor will support Cross Buy, Cross Play and Trophies.
From developer Jasper Byrne, Lone Survivor is a blend of psychological horror, point-and-click adventure and survival simulation, starring a man in a city brimming with disease and monstrous creatures. While those circumstances are terrifying enough, the protagonist questions how much of what he sees is even real, taking players on a deep mental journey as they battle the physical demons.
"I wanted to try and make a role-playing game with meaningful choices," Byrne writes on his Superflat Games blog. "It's an experiment in making every insignificant fact in the game having an invisible, or murkily visible effect on your outcome, however small."
Byrne is looking into touch control for inventory management and movement, and any features that can make the PSN version "enhanced in every way, smoother, nicer to control." Lone Survivor launched on PC and Mac in March 2012 and Byrne announced the Sony versions in November.
