Indie developer Jasper Byrne's survivor horror game Lone Survivor is coming to PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita this July, publisher Curve confirmed today.
This new version of Lone Survivor will support cross-saves on both hardware as well as Sony's cross-buy promotion will and feature expanded content exclusive to the PS3 and Vita. According to a post by Byrne on the PlayStation Blog, this includes 19 new items, new trophies, two new "extensive" sidequests and a new "Yellow" ending, which will feature new background music. Byrne also notes that the team is "investigating" touchscreens controls for player movement and inventory management.
Curve first announced Lone Survivor would be coming to Sony's consoles in a post on the PlayStation Blog last fall.
"Lone Survivor's release on PlayStation consoles is a dream come true for me," Byrne said in a press release. "I've been a big fan of Sony's hardware all my life. I really hope PS3 and Vita owners enjoy the game and its new content."
Curve announced last month that it would be publishing Mike Bithell's platformer Thomas Was Alone, which won a Games BAFTA this year in the Performer category for its narration, for PS3 and Vita this spring.
"We're very happy to be partnering with Jasper on this project," said Curve director Richie Turner. "I've always been a massive fan of Lone Survivor and PS Vita is the perfect platform for the game. The cross save functionality means players will always be up to date if they're playing on PS3."
