Building off the excitement generated by the latest Detroit: Become Human trailer, Quantic Dream has announced that they will be bringing Indigo Prophecy to the PlayStation 4 next month. Released in Europe as Fahrenheit, the cinematic mystery will carry a cost of $14.99.
Originally released in 2005, Indigo Prophecy centers around a series of mysterious murders that have taken place throughout New York City. Each of the killings follows a similar pattern: strangers are murdered in cold blood by seemingly possessed individuals. Players step into the shoes of possessed murderer Lucas Kane, as well as detectives Carla Valenti and Tyler Miles as they try to crack the mystery.
Despite the recent re-release of the title on Steam, the version of the game coming to the PS4 will not be a complete remaster. Instead, the game will be coming to the console through the “PS2 on PS4” initiative. In addition to Quantic Dream’s working relationship with Sony, this probably explains why the port isn’t also coming to the Xbox One at this time.
Although it tends to get a bit of a bad rap at times, I will always have a place in my heart for Indigo Prophecy. The thriller introduced me to the crazy cinematic adventures designer David Cage has come to be known for over the years. Sure, the story kind of falls apart by the end, but I love it all the same. I even enjoy it more than Heavy Rain, and I’m a huge fan of the 2010 PS3 exclusive.
Indigo Prophecy will be out to possess PS4 owners on July 18. Tell us, are you interested in re-living one of the crazier stories to spring from the team at Quantic Dream? Let us know in the comments section below.
