Indie Hits Journey And The Unfinished Swan Coming To PS4

To follow the host of Playstation 4 announcements coming out of today’s Gamescom press conference, Sony has also revealed a little surprise on their blog. 

Indie hits Journey and The Unfinished Swan will be coming to the PS4 later this year. Both games will be ported at 1080p and 60 FPS, and will hope to bring the definitive edition of the two classic titles to the PS4 console.

Journey first launched for the PS3 in 2011, and went on to collect many game of the year awards for developer thatgamecompany. They posted a statement on the Playstation Blog about the newest version of journey, saying:

Today we are happy to share that a whole new generation of players will experience the wonder of Journey when it comes to PlayStation 4 later this year.

Thanks to the heartfelt efforts of fellow developers Tricky Pixels, players new and old alike will share in the beloved Journey experience in visually stunning 1080p. More details about Journey’s release on PlayStation 4 are in the works for future announcement.

As mentioned, not only one Playstation indie hit will be making the leap to PS4, but two. The Unfinished Swan is another critically acclaimed title that will be heading to the system later this year.

The Unfinished Swan is being brought to the PS4 by the people at Armature Studio, who are better known for Batman: Arkham Origins. Similarly to JourneyThe Unfinished Swan will also be delivering a 1080p 60FPS gameplay experience. Ian Dallas, the creative director of the developer Giant Sparrow had this to say about the game:

The Unfinished Swan is about awe and wonder — the kind you experience as a child when reading a book for the first or even tenth time. We hope to inspire this same feeling in people that are new to the game or have already enjoyed it on PS3.

Both titles will also be cross-buy compatible, meaning if you already own the games on your PS3 you can download them completely free when they release for the PS4 and vice versa.
