Fullbright's Tacoma brings its space-soaked narrative to PS4 this summer
Did you miss Fullbright's space adventure game Tacoma when it came to Xbox One and PC last August? You don't need to rush out and buy a new platform. You can pick it up on PlayStation 4 when it comes to the console this May, announced via the official PlayStation Blog.
The studio that brought us Gone Home took a different approach when it came to Tacoma, putting players in the shoes of a subcontractor known as Amy Ferrier, who's traveled all the way out to the space station in an attempt to figure out what happened to the crew members. She's also tasked with retrieving the old AI system that was instrumental in the station's upkeep. Not long after Ferrier arrives, she knows something isn't right -- which will be very apparent to you as well when you start playing through the game.
Eagle-eyed Tacoma fans have already spotted the game available on the PlayStation Store, where you can preorder it right now. It's running at at a discounted rate of $15.99, though if you're a PlayStation Plus member, you'll get an additional 5% off the asking price all the way up until May 7 at 11 PM ET.
If you're thinking about taking the plunge, keep in mind that this is a very different game from Fullbright's cult hit Gone Home, as it requires a lot more investigation and action-based exploration. It's an interesting riff on adventure games, however, with realistic and believable characters worth getting to know.
