While the lucky Americans will be able to get their hands on the platform mining adventure from Image & Form today, priced at $9.99, we here in Europe will be able to find the game on PSN for PS4 and Vita from tomorrow (March 19th) at €8.99.
PlayStation Plus members will be able to pick up SteamWorld Dig, which is cross-buy, with a 20% discount for the first week as part of Sony’s Spring Fever promotion.
Branded as a “platform mining adventure” in a steampunk/western setting, SteamWorld Dig lets the player take the role of the Eastwood-esque robot protagonist Rusty in order to save a mining town in need. The plot thickens as he digs deeper into an underground full of treasure and terror…
“We are thrilled to present SteamWorld Dig to the PlayStation community,” beams Image & Form CEO Brjann Sigurgeirsson. “This is our first release ever on a stationary console, and a long-standing dream of ours. So many PlayStation gamers have asked us to bring the game to their hardware, and we can’t wait to join the community both on PS4 and Vita. We have a fantastic following on 3DS and Steam, and now we will reach a whole new audience. We are really very excited.”
Thanks to SteamWorld Dig’s immersive gameplay, unique mechanics and stunning presentation praise has been unanimous. As a result, Game of the Year nominations and awards have rained over the game.
