Update: Sony has now confirmed that The Last Campfire will indeed launch on PS4 tomorrow via a PlayStation Blog post from Hello Games founder Sean Murray.
"For the last few years a couple of members of the team had that opportunity to work on something more hand-crafted for PlayStation, a game called The Last Campfire. It’s a game about loss, hope and empathy. You play as Ember, a lost soul in a charming but dark world. On your path you find others like you, some of whom have lost their way and turned forlorn. It’s up to you as a player to choose who to help."
Original story: You know British developer Hello Games because of No Man's Sky, but for the past couple of years, it has been quietly working on another title for PlayStation 4 named The Last Campfire. It was first announced way back at The Game Awards in 2018, and Geoff Keighley might be about to reveal that it's available starting tomorrow. That'll take place during Gamescom Opening Night Live, and the Trophy list may have given the surprise away.
As spotted by Gematsu, The Last Campfire's Trophy list is live right now on Exophase -- this usually indicated that a game is drawing close to its launch date. More evidence can be sourced from its Apple Arcade listing, where it was previously stated that the title will indeed launch on 27th August 2020. This is by no means confirmation of any kind that The Last Campfire will indeed come to PS4 tomorrow, but given the developer's close ties to Geoff Keighley after debuting the game a few years back, the reveal makes a lot of sense to us.

I know British developer Hello Games because of Joe Danger. Hope this does turn out to drop tomorrow. Been looking forward to this for ages.
Waiting for the comments about "Oh no they screwed me over with NMS" I won't buy from them again blah blah.
End of the day they turned around a game that they over sold at launch it should have been delayed for a year, and then a roadmap of content produced over the years that would be released. Sony didn't help them and should have maybe stepped in as guidance but end of the day they supported that product and made a game that's got so much in it for those who like those games.
They could have done a EA or Activision released a broken game and left it as it was after a few patches
Wow I forgot they were working on this! I'm interested to see how it turns out.
I love no man sky from the day it launched, they stuck with it; it is An awesome game I’m sure this next game will be cool as well!
Apparently they've promised to recreate every National Park, globally, all of which can be camped in, in glorious multiplayer. I can't wait!
So what is this game even about? What's its genre?
@Nakatomi_Uk The weird thing for me with No Mans Sky is when i try to play the 'proper' game i get bored quickly. The flip side to this is i can spend hours and hours in sandbox mode, especially since VR support came in. The feeling you get peering out of your ships window as you hover just outside the atmosphere of a planet is second to none.
@Nakatomi_Uk agree the work they put into the game since launch has been great.
Given that this game just launched on the Switch today you might be right @LiamCroft
I loved No Mans Sky when it launched. I will be buying this new game to support Hello Games because of No Mans Sky.
I put 500hrs into the original game and added another 300hrs because of all the updates to No Mans Sky. I picked up a 6 section S-class freighter last night!
I apologize in advance for being so cynical, but this looks like it should just be called 'Indie Game, The Game'
Looks good, don't get me wrong, but still.
I'll come back in 2 years time when it's playable.
It had to be said!!
Looks like it was made in Dreams.
But still looks quite charming.
@Nakatomi_Uk if they had gotten help from Sony, they probably would've ended up like Evolution after Driveclub.
Ill get it hopefully a physical release later i will double dip for these guys great commitment to fix their games for free too.
This will be the first pancake game I've bought & played in almost a year. Very much looking forward to it.
