Firesprite’s long anticipated procedurally generated horror The Persistence will spook PlayStation VR headset wearers from 24th July. Available to pre-order from the PlayStation Store now – with a discount for PlayStation Plus members – the title fuses the popular rogue-lite genre with first-person Dead Space-esque outer-space survival, with each run seeing you adopt the body of a new “clone”.
The idea is that you’re a survivor on an abandoned colony ship, and there just so happen to be a few not-so friendly faces left behind. The layout of the vessel changes with each playthrough, but as you progress further and further you’ll unlock, er, persistent upgrades which will allow you to explore further. There’s even asymmetric co-op which enables a friend to help out on a tablet of smartphone.
