Journey Confirmed for PS4 Release on July 21 Featuring Cross-Buy Support
Much like the story of Journey itself, fans of thatgamecompany’s PS3 indie classic have waited patiently for the long-awaited PS4 version of the title: luckily, the mountain has been climbed and the wait is over, as the game will be coming to PS4 in just two weeks from now.
After the Docs at PlayStation website teased a release date yesterday, over on the PlayStation Blog Journey has officially been confirmed to release for PS4 on July 21st, 2015. If you previously owned the title on PS3, you’re in luck as the game will feature Cross-Buy support between PS4 and PS3, allowing users to get a free copy of the title on one platform for owning the other.
The PS4 version of the title will re-release the original PS3 game, though the new version will also include visual enhancements for full 1080p/60fps support.
As a particularly beloved and memorable experience from last generation, PlayStation is also leading up to the game’s release with a social media campaign allowing users to share their testimonials and memories of the game. All you have to do to join in is record a video testimonial through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or YouTube and use the hashtag “#OurJourney”, where the official Journey website will collect the numerous memories and experiences that many have had with such a particularly special game.
Journey is currently available on PS3 and will release for PS4 on July 21st, 2015 – in the meantime, you can check out a new trailer for the game’s PS4 release below, along with a video testimonial for the “#OurJourney” campaign featuring Journey Creative Director Jenova Chen:
