Publisher Gungho Entertainment announced today that the dystopian stealth game, Republique, is heading over to the PS4 in early 2016, including a list of several changes for the port of the game. All five episodes of the title are planned to release together on the Playstation Store, and players are said to be given the ability to watch over the character Hope and train her with more direct control. In the original PC version, gameplay was more strategic and planned out.
According to a post on Gamespot, Republique on PS4 is being developed by Camouflaj Studios, with Ryan Peyton of Metal Gear Solid 4 leading the team.
“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. I can’t thank GungHo enough for supporting our efforts to faithfully translate République into a true console experience.”
The PC version of the game was $25 for all five episodes, and while no pricing was announced, I wouldn’t be surprised if it was the same on Playstation. Republique started off as a Kickstarter game that released on mobile devices, only being ported to the PC later on. I’ve been putting off this game for awhile, but maybe now I have a reason to purchase the console version.
