Update: As expected, Frogwares has actually formally verified that The Sinking City will release worldwide on the PlayStation 5 from 19th February. There’ll be no next-gen upgrade due to ongoing legal problems, unfortunately, however the Ukrainian designer has “thanked” fans for understanding.
Initial Story: A next-gen variation of Ukrainian designer Frogwares’ Cthulhu-inspired Lovecraftian sandbox The Sinking City has appeared on the New Zealand PS Store, and is available to acquire today. The game has actually been involved in a legal battle, which culminated in the elimination of the PS4 variation from Sony’s shop, however it appears like the developer is self-publishing this PlayStation 5 port.
According to the description, the release will run in full 4K at 60 frames-per-second on PlayStation’s new platform, and it’ll boast improved graphic fidelity, much faster filling times, and DualSense support. There’s also a Deluxe variation readily available, which bundles in numerous additional missions and content, and there are discounts for PlayStation Plus members.
While a free PS4 to PS5 upgrade would be nice, there’s no mention of that, and offered the legal fights that have actually occurred around this release– well, we would not bank on one. We’ll sign in with Frogwares all the same, as this version of the open world investigator-’em-up is technically yet to be officially revealed– even if it’s available for purchase right now.
