Developer Midboss has finally announced a release date for 2064: Read Only Memories for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita: August 16, 2016.

The cyberpunk adventure is a point and click adventure set fifty years in San Francisco’s future as you solve a mystery to save your friend. The plot addresses questions about what it means to be human, technology and its place alongside humanity, and the consequences of discrimination.

Releasing earlier than the planned December window, 2064: Read Only Memories will be available for $19.99 and feature a 10% PlayStation Plus discount during launch week. It also supports cross-buy between PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.

Having already released on PC in 2015, this version of Read Only Memories comes with some ravamped features. This includes voice work from WWE Superstar Xavier Woods (Austin Creed) and Melissa Hutchison of The Walking Dead. The full voice cast also features: Jim Sterling, Dan Ryckert, Zoe Quinn, Sarah Elmaleh (Gone Home), and Adam Harrington (The Wolf Among Us). The cast provides spoken dialogue for a majority of the narrative, which has also undergone a large rewrite.

“One of the things we’re most excited about is not only the amazing and talented cast of well-known game personalities and voiceover talent, but also how we were able to work with an incredibly diverse cast, some of whom are unknown names, but are representative of the characters in the game,” said Matt Conn, founder of MidBoss. “We worked hard to find people of color and LGBT folks to play those characters in the game. We really wanted to stay true to these characters and who they are on every level.”
