Firesprite has announced a brand new sci-fi stealth horror title, The Persistence, which is coming exclusively to PS4 and PSVR.
Set on board a deep space scientific vessel called The Persistence in the year 2521, the ship arrives at the site of a collapsing star 17,000 light years from earth. While conducting a major experiment, a horrific incident occurs mutating many of the crew. As The Persistence is pulled into the gravity of the collapsing star, the ship’s computer, ‘IRIS’ wakes remaining members of the crew from cryogenic sleep – one at a time. Can you stay alive long enough to get to the engine room and save The Persistence?
The Persistence is procedurally generated. Every time you die and a new character is awoken by IRIS, the game will play out differently, with different enemies to face and loot to collect. You need to scavenge as much as you can. When you die the only thing that remains is what you have collected on your previous life, and you can use this to come back stronger.
The game will feature a companion app which allows your friends to hack in to The Persistence’s engineering computer. Once inside the system, up to 4 connected tablets have control over many areas of the game, from the ability to control doors, distract enemies, disable traps, and even to find hidden items for the VR player to scavenge. But be aware though, sometimes the tablet players gets rewarded if you die, will you trust your friends?
We look forward to more news about The Persistence soon!
