PlayStation 4 owners can now play one of the most critically acclaimed and visually stunning games of the past few years, “Journey.” It originally came out for the PlayStation 3 in 2012, and the PS4 version can now be played at 1080p and 60fps, making this version of “Journey” the most visually impressive so far.
According to the official PlayStation Blog, fans should be able to download the game right now on the PlayStation Network (or PSN Store). Fans who have subscribed to PlayStation Plus can get the game at 20 percent off right away, while those who have previously downloaded the title on the PlayStation 3 will be getting this version of “Journey” for the price of nothing.
“Journey” was developed by thatgamecompany (or TGC), the studio that also brought us artistic titles like “Flower” and “flOw,” both of which are also available for the PlayStation 4 via the PSN Store. All three games have been praised for their graphics and gameplay, while proving to many naysayers that video games can also be art. Fans who downloaded “Flower” and “flOw” on the PlayStation 3 can also purchase the PS4 versions for free.
Fans of the original game should expect no major changes to the gameplay aside from the aforementioned 1080p graphics, as this is essentially the same game that came out for the PlayStation 3. This is probably why the game is free for those who have already purchased it.
There seemed to be a problem with fans getting the free version or cross-buy version, but it was fixed, GameSpot reports. PlayStation users should be able to choose a different version instead of getting only a buying option, so fans will have to click the option that lets players choose which version to get.
PlayStation owners new and old can pick up “Journey” right now, whether it is for the PlayStation 3 or the PlayStation 4. Veterans who originally picked up the title have the option of getting it free in 1080p, so if they want to go on a “Journey” again, they can.
