The Chinese Room’s breathtaking narrative adventure Dear Esther lands on consoles for the first time today, in the form of a stunning Landmark Edition.
Dear Esther is a narrative adventure that takes place on an uninhabited Hebridean island, upon which a lone man must piece together the chain of events which lead to his wife’s death. Widely acclaimed upon its original release on PC in 2012, it is a game unlike any other; a visual and aural experience which has rarely been bettered.
What makes the Landmark Edition different from the original PC version is the inclusion of new commentary material by the original team of Jessica Curry, Rob Briscoe and Dan Pinchbeck . The Landmark Edition also boasts some additional tweaks not seen in the current PC release, including additional accessibility options. In addition, the Landmark Edition introduces respectful trophies and achievements.
“Dear Esther has been with us for eight years now, but our passion remains undiminished – and we are as excited about it now as we were the first time,” says Dan Pinchbeck, The Chinese Room. “This Landmark Edition is the culmination of the work of an extraordinary team of individuals and we’re excited to see how console players will respond.”
Available now with a limited-time discount of 20 percent off the MSRP of $9.99, Dear Esther: Landmark Edition gives PlayStation 4 owners the opportunity to experience the game which defined a genre.
