Curve Digital is bringing The Chinese Room’s Dear Esther to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this summer, the publisher announced.
The console versions will feature an all-new “Director’s Commentary” mode, where subsequent replays will be accompanied by an audio retrospective of the game’s inception, development, release, and impact. There are also subtle tweaks to how the game looks and plays.
Dear Esther sees players explore a remote island in the Scottish Hebrides, assuming the role of a troubled man piecing together the chain of events which lead to his wife’s death. Fragments of letters appear throughout the island, weaving a complex narrative of both the recent and distant past. As the island’s secrets are gradually revealed, players will piece together a tale which the publisher says “will remain with them long after the screen has faded to black.”
