Luc Bernard, game director at Arcade Distillery, has revealed that Plague Road will be coming soon to PS Vita and PS4 digitally via the Playstation Network with cross-buy support. The game is compatible with PlayStation TV and also supports the PS4 Pro. Plague Road also gets a limited physical edition published by Limited Run Games.
Set around a city consumed from within by disease, Plague Road tells a story of a lone doctor who having once abandoned their home, now returns in search of survivors. Over the course of the game, players will learn how the city fell victim to the growing sickness within its walls, why the Plague Doctor left, and what brought them back – in a tale of regret and redemption.
In Plague Road you will have a farm where you will be able to unlock new buildings (by finding NPCs in the world and doing quests for them), upgrade and see the progress you’ve made. So even if you mess up while venturing out into the world, you will always be improving your farm.
When you find survivors in this world, you can choose to bring them with you to help reach the city or you can retire them into buildings, which will unlock new skills. On the topic of skills, you can see in our new trailer that some of those will be quite powerful, but will require a lot of stamina – so you must be wise about when you use them. Also each survivor you collect will be unique in terms of their stats and initial skills. You’ll constantly be exploring to find the best survivors for your party.
Don’t be reckless when you bring survivors out on the road – if they die it’s permanent. But don’t fear, you can always find new ones. The only character who you will not lose due to death is the Plague Doctor.
