Survival-horror roguelike “The Persistence” to launch on PS4, Xbox, Switch and PC


The rouge-like survival horror game The Persistence will look for its PC and console digital release this early summer.

Originally released for the PSVR in 2018, The Persistence will be releasing digitally for the Nintendo Switch, The Xbox One, PS4 and PC on May 21st 2020. Created by independent developers Firesprite Games, The Persistence, a deep space colony spaceship, you as the player face horrific mutant type enemies as you type to survive long enough to make it back to Earth.

“When we made the move to bring The Persistence to new platforms, our key focus was to ensure that the particularly brutal nature of gameplay made the leap to non-VR,. As a result, The Persistence keeps players on edge from beginning to end, and with a procedurally generated environment forming around them, no two playthroughs are ever identical, meaning you will never find safety in the same spot.” – Graeme Ankers, MD and founder of Firesprite Games

The Persistence features: –

  • A brutal take on the survival-horror genre that integrates rogue-like design elements to give the action an extra edge

  • Procedurally generated stages that change with each playthrough, creating a labyrinth-like experience that adds to the tension

  • Live, die, repeat. Play as dozens of different clones on board the ship, each one with the potential to be stronger than the last

  • Tailored controls. enhanced environments and post-processing effects for PC, PS4 and Xbox One deliver a heightened fidelity of horror for fans of the genre

  • Atmospheric, cutting-edge visuals in docked, handheld or tabletop modes for the Nintendo Switch platform
