Developer Strange Scaffold has announced it's porting last year's indie favourite El Paso, Elsewhere to PS5, with a view to launching the new version later this year digitally on the PS Store and physically with a boxed copy. The new physical version will include the game on a disc along with an exclusive poster and a code for the digital soundtrack, distributed by Nighthawk Interactive. You can see the game in action in the trailer above.

With a view to releasing the game in the final few months of 2024, the game tasks you with hunting "werewolves, fallen angels, and other damned creatures in a vivid slow motion love letter to action classics." You'll battle through a "reality-shifting motel", going floor by floor to save those captured by Draculae, the lord of the vampires. "Destroy the villain you loved — even if it means dying yourself." The game costs £16.75 / $19.99 on PC, so expect a similar price on PS5. Fans of Max Payne and the bullet time feature will be right at home, it seems.

The game originally released for PC and Xbox consoles last year to a positive critical reception. With a Metacritic rating of 78, GameSpot awarded an 8/10 and said: "Despite taking more time than it should to really hit its stride, El Paso, Elsewhere is unrelenting once it does. Its straightforward action is enhanced by its consistently evolving enemies and delicate balancing of power, while its captivating love story presents a novel take on established mythologies with some impressive performances to back them up. It wears its inspirations on its sleeve but has its own ideas to add to the mix, making El Paso, Elsewhere much more than the sum of its apparent parts."
