There Came an Echo comes to the PlayStation 4 on May 31st
Iridium Studios, developer of the critically acclaimed Before the Echo, is proud to announce that its second title, There Came an Echo, will be releasing next week as a console exclusive on the PlayStation 4 for $14.99. The game features a complex, cyberpunk narrative starring Wil Wheaton, Laura Bailey, Yuri Lowenthal, Ashly Burch, and more.
“It turns out porting games is hard,” said Jason Wishnov, CEO of Iridium Studios, who enjoys stating obvious facts. “But after some significant period of time, and the help of Sony’s engineers, we managed to bring the exceptionally advanced voice recognition in There Came an Echo to life on the PlayStation 4.”
Players will soon be able to order their units across the battlefield with standard commands (“All units, move to alpha three!”) as well as custom commands they can enter themselves (“Johnny Depp, do that crazy walk thing to alpha three!”). Narratively, they’ll watch as Corrin Webb, played by Wil Wheaton, is thrown into a worldwide game over global intrigue over a piece of transhumanist technology that threatens to upend the world’s status quo.
