Acclaimed Thriller “The Town of Light” Heading to Consoles June 6

The acclaimed psychological horror game The Town of Light is heading to the PlayStation 4, XBox One, and PC in an enhanced edition on June 6, 2017.

This new release of The Town of Light will offer a host of new puzzles, new story-supporting content, reworked voiceover dialogue, additional interactive elements and a huge graphical and UI overhaul that aims to deliver a more polished and immersive experience for its console debut and enhanced Windows PC release. Played through the fictional eyes of Renée, a 16-year-old girl who suffers from the symptoms of mental illness, players must search for answers to the many questions from her past while exploring and uncovering the place where she spent most of her youth. What happens next is a dark and emotional journey where the lines of interactive entertainment, storytelling and reality frequently tend to blur. As Ars Technica wrote, the game “takes a brave stab at presenting a fresh examination of what constitutes horror.”

The Town of Light will be available for $19.99 in both physical and digital formats.
