Inside's PS4 release date confirmed

Playdead's acclaimed second game will be out very soon.

Playdead, the developer of acclaimed puzzle platformer Limbo, has announced its latest game, Inside, will launch for PlayStation 4 on August 23. The date was revealed in a new trailer for the game, which you can watch below.

Inside was released on Xbox One and PC in June and received very positive reviews. Talk of a PS4 version began when Trophies for Inside appeared online, and a report later said it would be available by the end of August.

In GameSpot's Inside review, Alex Newhouse awarded it an 8/10, describing it as a "beautiful, haunting and memorable game" and "a worthy followup to Limbo."

He continued: "The real achievement of this game is the way that it crafts its narrative: detailed environments convey the bizarre world that you travel through; introspective moments are filled with minimalist sound design and just the barest touches of music; and the things you must do to complete your journey force you to confront the realities of humanity, freedom and existence."

Following the launch of Inside, Playdead's chief executive, Dino Patti, left the company to "seek new challenges."

"Following almost 10 incredible years building Playdead from an idea to two dents in the games industry, I'm leaving to seek new challenges," he said.
