Acclaimed platformer 'Inside' is coming to PlayStation 4

Limbo studio Playdead’s latest effort is hitting Sony’s console on August 23rd.

Limbo developer Playdead has revealed it will be releasing its latest acclaimed platformer, Inside, for PlayStation 4 on August 23rd. The date was announced via a new trailer which shows the game's main character falling into an abyss.

Inside has been available exclusively on Xbox One and PC since late June. It's a 3D side scroller that has you control a young boy in a monochromatic landscape where you solve environmental puzzles. It's visually similar to Limbo, with a minimalist art style and muted color pallet.

It might come as a slight surprise to see Playdead porting its latest game over to a PlayStation platform so quickly. Limbo came out for Xbox 360 in July 2010 and was a timed-exclusive on Microsoft's console for a year, before it was released for PlayStation 3 and PC. Inside's Xbox One exclusivity, on the contrary, only lasts two months. That means, PS4 owners won't have to wait too long to play a game Game Informer called "the perfect showcase of the kind of emotion an interactive experience can inspire."
