Crossing Souls will launch for PlayStation 4 and PC on February 13, 2018, publisher Devolver Digital and developer Fourattic announced.
The action adventure game will be playable at PlayStation Experience 2017 from December 9 to 10. The development team will be on hand to walk attendees through the new demo and discuss the inspirations that went into the project, which include Stand by Me, E.T., and Ghostbusters.
Here’s an overview of the game, via Devolver Digital:
It’s 1986 in California and a group of friends will live the summer of their lives after a mysterious discovery in woods outside their quiet town. By uncovering an artifact whose powers they don’t fully understand, these remarkable kids will defy the laws of nature and somehow interact between two planes of reality: life and death. Their curiosity will trigger a series of unexpected events that will get them involved in a government conspiracy and a mysterious U.S. Army general with his own nefarious plans.
Crossing Souls is a vibrant action-adventure game about a group of neighborhood buddies that set out on a quest to save their town and our world from government conspirators and shadowy forces. Switch between these unassuming heroes on the fly to take advantage of each one’s unique attacks and abilities as you battle local authorities, evil specters, and creatures of unknown origin! Collect clues from around town and jump between two realms to solve the mysteries enveloping your quiet suburban home before all is lost!
