Heavy Rain is one of Sony’s exclusive babies this year. There’s been a bit of speculation recently as to when, exactly, this adventure-slash-interactive-drama title would ship, and now we have it. I’m actually looking forward to giving Heavy Rain a shot, it interests me in ways I can’t really begin to explain. But, regardless, we’ll be able to get our hands on this interesting title on February 23, 2010.
Unfortunately for North Americans, there will be no collector’s edition like there will be in Europe, however if you pre-order you get some the first piece of DLC for the game, for free and before the rest of the world. That DLC is called “Heavy Rain: Chronicle 1 – The Taxidermist”. If you don’t pre-order, you’ll be able to buy the DLC eventually for $4.99, but there is no word on when it will be made available on the PlayStation Store. But, if this title tickles your fancy, perhaps saving a few bucks and pre-ordering would be the way to go.
