thatgamecompany’s Creative Director, Jenova Chen, made an announcement on PlayStation.Blog today that should please fans of the studio’s games — their latest project, Journey, will be released on PlayStation Network on March 13 for $14.99. (The game’ll hit on March 14 in Europe.) It’ll be the very start of this year’s PSN Spring Fever event.
The game will feature a new, anonymous experience in which you travel discover your purpose together. Chen wrote:
You wake alone and surrounded by miles of burning, sprawling desert, and soon discover the looming mountaintop which is your goal. Faced with rolling sand dunes, age-old ruins, caves and howling winds, your passage will not be an easy one. The goal is to get to the mountaintop, but the experience along the way is discovering who you are, what this place is, and what your purpose is. Travel and explore this ancient, mysterious world alone, or with a stranger you meet along the way. Soar above ruins and glide across sands as you discover the secrets of a forgotten civilization. Featuring stunning visuals, haunting music, and unique online gameplay, Journey delivers an experience like no other.
When we get more information, we’ll let you know. Until then, we’ll just be glad to have a date for this new experience.
