Another World coming to PS4

The cinematic classic, Another World, is returning, arriving on the PS4 next week...

Another World is over 20 years old (23 to be precise), and is one of the earliest examples of cinematic gaming, blending platforming, shooting and puzzling with a level of storytelling and characterisation few games had even started to approach at the time. Even today, Another World, also known as Out of This World in the US, is more adept at delivering an unforgettable tale than most releases, even without a word of dialogue, and it's headed back to our screens via the PS4.

Set to arrive on PSN next week, the game has been remastered to run at 2560x1600 with full anti-aliased visuals, at the same time retaining the unique feel of the original vision. Creator, Eric Chahi, more recently known for From Dust, and previously Heart of Darkness and Time Travellers, is returning to his magnum opus to bring it to a whole new generation of gamers.

If you've never played Another World, you really should check it out. It's a legitimate piece of gaming history, and is one of the most challenging and rewarding games you're likely to play. It's a true work of art, and it's great to see it return to our screens one again.

Another World will arrive on the PS4 on June 24, and it's also planned for PS3 and PS Vita, but dates for these platforms have yet to be announced.
