A brutal VR sci-fi-stealth, horror and rogue-like, The Persistence from Sony Interactive Entertainment for the Sony PS4 challenges you to survive aboard a doomed colony ship, overrun with mutants.
First Person Horror Meets Roguelike Exploration in VR
Everyone’s dead…even you. But there’s a slim chance you could still escape and take back your life, if only you can repair the ship’s devastated systems before the black hole that’s trapped it rips The Persistence apart.
In an entirely new kind of stealth horror game, exclusively for PlayStation 4 with PlayStation VR, you must hide in the shadows and battle terrifying mutants as you strive to get the engines back on line, plot a course – and somehow get the ship back to Earth. Can you stay alive long enough to save The Persistence?
Different Every Time
An insurmountable horde stands between you and success, and, to make matters worse, the ship’s macrostructure is malfunctioning, rearranging the deck modules into random configurations.
Procedurally generated decks mean that no two games of The Persistence will play the same – and every time you awaken in another clone host, a new challenge awaits you on the next deck…
Stealth and VR - A Perfect Match
The heart-pounding thrills of a stealth game are raised to new levels by the immersive presence of VR. Sneaking around, hiding behind cover – feel the adrenaline pumping as you lean out of safety to see the terrifying dangers that stalk you in the dark.
The Eon-class vessel The Persistence is heading to terraform and colonize an exoplanet 1,291 light years from home. Operating with a flight crew of seven, the ship is designed for a maximum capacity of 780 settlers to be clone-printed from the engram-reservoir upon arrival at the intended destination. But it never arrives.
A freak “spark gap” in the last singularity jump has thrown it into the gravity well of a black hole. No ship has ever been known to survive a “spark gap” event – The Persistence only barely remained intact, with most of its key systems critically damaged. No help is coming. If anyone is going to escape alive, it’s up to you!
With just a clone printer to provide host bodies, and an Armory Fabricator to supply weapons, can you survive long enough to repair the ship and make it back home?
- You're the last man standing aboard a colony ship overrun with mutants.
- Procedurally generated levels respawn a new layout every time you die, so you're always on your toes.
- Horror stealth game for a more challenging, frightening experience as you sneak through the ship trying to avoid the unavoidable mutants.
- With only the digital recordings of the ship's security officer and engineer to guide you, you'll have to fight to survive and figure out how to make the necessary repairs to guide the ship home before it's too late.
