Aksys Games and Spike Chunsoft recently announced that the North American version of Zero Escape: Zero Time Dilemma will arrive on PS4 this fall.
The game will be available both digitally and physically at retail, along with full HD remastering to bring the trilogy to a close.
The game centers around trying to escape from an underground facility where torture and death await a select number of unlucky individuals. Players will have to overcome the puzzles, follow the clues and watch as the visual story unfolds across multiple branching paths based on the decisions you make throughout the tale.
Spike Chunsoft released a trailer a while back to give gamers an overview of how the game is played, which you can check out below.
It really is truly Japanese.
There are a lot of little ins and outs that determine how you’re capable of succeeding, failing or progressing through the story.
The hook for the game is that in order to escape from the facility, six people must die. Each death unlocks a password that’s used to open the giant door with the ‘X’ on it. Once the door unlocks, the remaining survivors can escape.
The game sets itself up much like SAW, but there’s an added twist: the nine people attempting to survive also have the lives of all of humanity in their hands.
And just like with saw, after the 90 minutes expire and no decisions are made, a drug is administered to those remaining.
It’s a literal do or die situation where players will have to think fast, make bold decisions and do whatever they can in order to help the survivors escape.
It’s an interesting game with a unique twist on the typical narrative-driven story structure. You can pick up a digital copy of the game right now on PC, or you can grab a digital or physical copy when it’s ported over to the PS4 later this year.
