ENTIRE RÉPUBLIQUE GAME TO DEBUT ON PLAYSTATION 4 MARCH 22; FIFTH AND FINAL EPISODE HITS PC AND MOBILE SAME DAY
GungHo Online Entertainment America, Inc. (GOEA) and Seattle-based development studio Camouflaj announced today that the critically acclaimed stealth-action masterpiece République will release on the PlayStation®4 (PS4™) computer entertainment system digitally and in retail stores on March 22 in North America and later this spring for Europe. On the same day, the fifth and final episode, Terminus, will be available for download on PC and mobile devices. The PS4 version, distributed by ATLUS, will include the complete series for $24.99/CA $39.99. NIS America will also distribute a limited “Contraband Edition” of the game for $44.99 in their online store, which includes République-themed physical goods such as the soundtrack and The Manifesto, a 160 page book detailing about life inside Metamorphosis.
Unique to the PS4 version of République is a new control scheme allowing players to control Hope, a young woman held captive inside Metamorphosis, a shadowy totalitarian state ruled by the omnipresent Overseer. By hacking into the secret nation’s elaborate surveillance network, players guide Hope on a treacherous and thrilling journey to freedom.
“The evolution of the series from the mobile one-touch control to the PlayStation 4 DualShock 4 controller is a monumental achievement and ensures our captivating stealth story reaches a truly massive audience,” said Ryan Payton, founder of Camouflaj. “What began as a small project has become a landmark title that has expanded creatively and technically throughout all five episodes. It’s been quite a journey for our studio and we are confident that fans will find the conclusion well worth the wait.”
République’s highly anticipated fourth episode – “God’s Acre” – released on PC and mobile devices in December and is available for purchase with the full season on Steam for $24.99 or by episodes on mobile devices for $4.99 each on both the App Store and Google Play. Those who purchased the full season will receive Terminus on March 22.
The PS4 version is available as an entire season on March 22 at North American retailers and digitally through the PlayStation Network. The Contraband Edition is available on NIS America’s online store in limited quantities.
