The Persistence Enhanced

The Persistence Enhanced will launch for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, and PC on June 4, developer Firesprite announced. Users who own The Persistence for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, or PC will be able to upgrade to the Enhanced edition free of charge.

“We’re really excited to debut The Persistence on next-generation hardware, bringing improvements that intensify the immersive stealth horror for both existing players and newcomers alike,” said Firesprite managing director Graeme Ankers in a press release.

Here is an overview of the game, via Firesprite:

The Persistence offers a brutal take on survival-horror that integrates an innovative rogue-lite design into the genre, as players are tasked with surviving aboard a doomed deep space colony starship in the year 2521, repeatedly heading deeper and deeper in the decks of The Persistence on each run, to repair the systems and prevent the ship from being torn apart.

The Persistence Enhanced dials up the atmosphere and tension further with improved lighting and particle effects and the addition of a Raytracing “Quality” mode for Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, which also includes immersive haptic feedback via DualSense. DXR implementation is enabled for PCs with a supported graphics card.
