The Sinking City Getting PlayStation 5 Version Tomorrow
Today Frogwares has announced they’re bringing their Lovecraftian detective game The Sinking City to PlayStation 5. Best of all, it’s happening tomorrow.
The PlayStation 5 version of The Sinking City will have all the upgrades you’d expect for the game. For starters, it will now run at 60fps and in 4k, which should help make the improved graphics look just that much better on a nice TV. In addition to this, the game now features DualSense support, making use of the PlayStation 5’s fancy controller features. The loading times have also been shortened. To add to this, the PlayStation 5 version of the game will see a permanent $10 price reduction, bringing it to $49.99.
While the game is coming to the PlayStation 5, there is a bit of bad news to go with it. It won’t be a free upgrade, and PlayStation 4 owners will have to repurchase the game in order to get the PlayStation 5 version. Frogwares noted that the reason for this is because the game is under a different publisher, with the original release of The Sinking City still under Nacon. Since they’re currently involved in a lawsuit, it doesn’t seem likely that this will change any time soon.
If you’re interested in grabbing The Sinking City, it’s currently available on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. It launches on the PlayStation 5 on February 19th.
