Dreadlocks, a game development studio from the Czech Republic along with BadLand Games bring Dex to PS4 today. A physical version will also be released in select territories too. A PS Vita release is planned for later this year.
Dex is a cyberpunk 2D side-scrolling RPG following the story of an AI, Dex, and her quest for Singularity, a theoretical “event horizon” in which artificial intelligence will surpass human intelligence. Chased by corporate mercs, without a clue as to why, Dex gets thrown into a web of intrigue, leading her to question the origins of her own existence. A trio of hacktivists help her in her quest — the mysterious Raycast, the protective Decker and the light-minded Tony. Only you get to decide how the story ends. The outskirts of the city are plagued by crime, poverty and filth. Out there, every day is a new struggle for survival. The wealthier districts are full of skyscrapers and bustling businesses. Yet beneath the sleek exterior, another war is going on, as powerful corporations are constantly at each other’s throats. Woe to those who become entangled in their conspiracies.
The streets of Harbor Prime offer countless opportunities. In this open world, you get to influence the fate of everyone you meet, fight against dangerous gangs, expose corporate secrets, dive into the depths of Cyberspace and develop Dex’s skills.
Check out the trailer below.
We first reported on Dex back in 2014.
