Merge Games has announced its partnership with DigixArt to bring its procedural road trip adventure Road 96 to PlayStation and Xbox consoles on April 14th, 2022. This means that you can play the game on the new-gen and the previous-gen consoles of both Xbox and PlayStation.
Road 96 was released last year in August on PC and was expected to head to consoles ever since its debut in 2021.
Check out the trailer below:
Summer 1996, Today is the day!
You hit the road. Adventure. Freedom. Escape. Run.
Flee Petria, flee the Regime, try to survive.
On this risky road trip to the border, you’ll meet unusual characters, discover their intertwined stories and secrets in an ever-evolving adventure. But every mile opens up a choice to make. Your decisions will change your adventure, change the people you meet, maybe even change the country’s destiny.
There are thousands of roads across the authoritarian nation of Petria.
Which one will you take?
Road 96 is a project that comes from DigixArt, headed by industry veteran Yoan Fanise, who is known for Valiant Hearts and Memories Retold. Players will experience a unique and ever-evolving, story-driven adventure which is said to be inspired by Quentin Tarantino, The Coen Brothers, and Bong Joon-ho.
From moments of action, wacky situations and human encounters, to exploration, all come in a stunning visual style, a soundtrack filled with 90s hits, and thousands of routes through the game that will help players create their own unique stories on Road 96. The backdrop, though, is set against an authoritarian rule and oppression, which sets up the story and the adventure.
