The Vanishing Of Ethan Carter Is Coming To PS4!
In an awesome post on the PlayStation Blog, Adrian Chmierlarz - founder of "The Astronauts" who developed the game - revealed that The Vanishing Of Ethan Carter will be coming to PS4 on July 14th. He also talked through some of the development process and about the music of the game. You can go read it here.
The game looks beautiful, the story and world intrigue me to no end, and it comes at the perfect time for many people: the summer drought when not much really comes out. It's a good move on Sony's part to get it out now, and I'm sure many people will be overjoyed to play it on their PS4's!
