The "Landmark Edition" of the indie narrative adventure Dear Esther arrives on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Dear Esther is a narrative adventure from The Chinese Room that takes place on an uninhabited Hebridean island, upon which a lone man must piece together the chain of events which lead to his wife’s death. The game made its original release on PC in 2012.
The Landmark Edition introduces a new commentary which reunited the original team of Jessica Curry, Rob Briscoe, and Dan Pinchbeck for the first time in years. In addition to the commentary, the Landmark Edition also has additional tweaks not seen in the current PC release. This includes additional accessibility options. The new edition also introduces platform-respectful trophies and achievements. The PlayStation 4 version is also bundled with a dynamic theme.
“Dear Esther has been with us for eight years now, but our passion remains undiminished – and we are as excited about it now as we were the first time,” says Dan Pinchbeck of The Chinese Room. “This Landmark Edition is the culmination of the work of an extraordinary team of individuals and we’re excited to see how console players will respond.”
Dear Esther: Landmark Edition is available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and is priced $7.99 for the time being. The Landmark Edition additions and enhancements will be made available to existing PC owners as a free update at a later date.
