Today Granzella had two surprises in store for the fans of its upcoming PS4 exclusive game Disaster Report 4 Plus: Summer Memories.
First of all, they mentioned on the Japanese website of the game that it will receive a PlayStation VR demo in January 2017.
You’ll notice that I mentioned a “Japanese website,” and that’s because the second surprise is the opening of a website in English, which provides an official translation of the game’s story summary if you’re not familiar with it.
The harsh sunlight, the scorching asphalt.
Buildings continue to collapse under their own weight one after another.
Immediately after the earthquake, the city is filled with danger and people are panicked.
The protagonist of the game (which can be selected as male or female), who arrived in the city to find employment just before the major earthquake hit the city, is now left alone, being unfamiliar with the area.
He (or she) wanders around the city to survive as aftershocks continue.
Cooperating and having conflicts with other people, the protagonist collects information to escape from the collapsing city.
We also get a translation of the official FAQs, that clarify PS4 exclusivity, optional VR support and more:
