During today’s Stae of Play it was announced indie darling Tunic would be coming to PS4 and PS5 on September 27th. Tunic was originally released earlier this year on March 16th for Xbox consoles as a timed exclusive and PC. Tunic is an isometric action game with an emphasis on exploration and world-building. It has a beautiful interconnected world, with some amazing visuals and music. With combat reminiscent of old Zelda games and Dark Souls, strangely enough. Tunic is a game that can remind you of that feeling you got playing games as a child that I highly recommend to anyone. Check out the announcement below:
From the PlayStation Blog:
While Tunic is designed to be a single-player adventure, there’s so much to talk about, and so many puzzles to unravel, that you’re going to want to keep a dedicated party open so your smartest friends can help you decipher the hardest secrets. We’re also designing Game Help content on PS5 to always start with the gentlest of nudges, so that you don’t get anything spoiled even if you get totally bamboozled by one of the terrifying bosses or ancient riddles littering the realm.
While Tunic takes big cues from the ultra-challenging games from our past and present, it also includes a range of options that allow players to customize the combat challenge to suit their interests, without actually removing the fun of fighting ferocious fiends. Players can opt out of some of the more technical aspects of the combat, or even enable a “no fail” mode. Whether you’re new to the dodge-rolling action RPG genre and still learning the ropes, playing your first real adventure with a young one, tired from a long week of work, or mostly just here for the incredible puzzles, this game has you covered.
