Heavy Rain developer's Fahrenheit headed to PS4 next week


PlayStation 2 interactive movie/game Fahrenheit comes out on PlayStation 4 next week, on 10th August.

The re-release was originally scheduled for July, but was held up for reasons unknown.

Fahrenheit - known in the US as Indigo Prophecy - brought developer Quantic Dream to the attention of Sony, and helped spawned the partnership which would later result in PS3 classic Heavy Rain.

Certainly, Fahrenheit's influences can be seen in Quantic Dream's follow-up - as well as in the studio's next game Beyond: Two Souls, and the upcoming Detroit: Become Human.

It's also infamous for its fourth wall-breaking appearance of director David Cage himself during the game's opening scenes.

Don't expect anything new in this latest release, other than Trophies, if they're your bag. And if you have the game already, you'll still need to buy it again.
