PlayStation players had to wait a year for Limbo, the first game from talented indie studio Playdead.

This time around, with Inside, they'll only have to wait a few weeks more.

Inside will launch for PlayStation 4 on 23rd August, which is far sooner than we were expecting. The side-scrolling platform adventure arrived only a month ago as an Xbox One exclusive, although it is now also available on PC.

Years in the making, Inside received critical acclaim upon its release despite tough comparisons with Playdead's much-loved Limbo. In fact, some reviewers such as Eurogamer's own Christian Donlan deemed it even better.

Inside "is a superior game in every way", Donlan wrote in our Inside review. "Its puzzles are better, its staging and its pacing is better. It has ditched a little of Limbo's lingering triteness, its smugness as its own singular nature. It's also, it must be said, pretty similar to Limbo in a lot of ways."
