Gone Home PS4 PlayStation 4 1

Fullbright's critically acclaimed walking simulator Gone Home was announced for the PlayStation 4 eons ago, but financial issues at publisher Midnight City meant that the port was put on hiatus. Fortunately, those problems appear to have been resolved, and the game will open the front door of Sony's new-gen format on 12th January. Hurray!

During the downtime, the developer's taken the opportunity to upgrade the release's engine from Unity 4 to Unity 5, so you can expect the exact same experience that released in 2013 with some additional bells and whistles. "Our goal wasn't to add or change things, but just to bring the game that players know and love onto consoles in the best possible form we could," founder Steve Gaynor explained.

Having not played the game yet – no spoilers, please – this author's really excited to finally "go home". And the fact that the title's barely more than a month away makes this news even more exciting.
