Well well well, what have we got here? Do you remember Project Awakening? It was announced for PlayStation 4 during Sony's pre-Tokyo Game Show press conference in 2018. It got that amazing looking CG trailer. We suggest that you go watch it if your memory's a little fuzzy.
Anyway, near the beginning of this year, Project Awakening: Arise was trademarked in Europe, and now it's back. The same product has been rated by Europe's PEGI board, which can often mean that some kind of official announcement -- or even release -- is imminent.
The rating reads: "This trial version will allow players to get a taste of the combat and action available from Project Awakening, an action role-playing game featuring photorealistic graphics. In Project Awakening: Arise..."
Could developer Cygames be about to shadow drop this "trial version"? Maybe it's going to feature in Sony's Tokyo Game Show 2019 livestreams? We just don't know, but something's happening behind the scenes.
If you're wondering what Project Awakening actually is, we got quite a few details back in June. An E3 interview revealed some interesting bullet points: it's an open world title, it has some form of co-op multiplayer, and it was said to be in heavy development. Indeed, it sounded like Project Awakening was destined to be a PS5 release, but if this trail version is being rated for PS4, it might be farther along than we thought. We'll have to wait and see.
