It’s been around on PC for a couple of years now, with the very first video game released in 2017. What sets these games apart from other co-op puzzlers is its dependence on interaction– literally. Utilizing just the in-game walkie talkies, you’ll have to talk to your partner in order to fix various puzzles and leave the castle. It’s worth discussing that, while We Were Here is indeed a giveaway, you will need a PS Plus subscription to play it; it’s online co-op only.
Here comes Sony, simply casually dropping a new game on PlayStation 4 free of charge. We Were Here is a well liked series of online co-op puzzle games. It’s been around on PC for a few years now, with the very first game launched in 2017. Well, today, that initial entry in the series has been made readily available on PlayStation Store free of charge for a minimal time, with the other 2 games to follow later in February.
What sets these games apart from other co-op puzzlers is its reliance on interaction– literally. You and a buddy will wind up inside the walls of a strange castle, and end up being separated. Utilizing just the in-game walkie talkies, you’ll need to speak to your partner in order to fix various puzzles and get away the castle. It seems like an excellent concept; you and a pal will have to explain what you see on your particular paths, and determine how you can assist each other advance.
As pointed out by the developer on the PlayStation Blog, you can technically utilize PS4 or PS5’s celebration chat abilities to circumvent the walkie talkies, but where’s the fun in that? Managing director and co-founder Lucia de Visser suggests using the in-game system “to set the state of mind and for some extra difficulty”. With only one channel on the radios, you’ll need to try not to speak over each other.
The 3rd and second video games in the series, We Were Here Too and We Were Here Together, will likewise be coming to PS4 on 23rd February. There will be a cost connected to these, and all 3 video games will be offered together in a bundle if you prefer.
It’s worth mentioning that, while We Were Here is certainly a giveaway, you will need a PS Plus membership to play it; it’s online co-op only. What do you consider all this? Will you be inspecting out We Were Here on PS4 (or PS5 with in reverse compatibility)? Inform us in the comments area below.
