The PlayStation 4 version will follow in early 2023. Additionally, in order to “develop the best possible VR experience,” PlayStation VR support has been removed from the PlayStation 4 version in favor of developing a “definitive VR version” for PlayStation VR2, which will launch sometime in 2023.
Here is an overview of the game, via Perp Games:
In October 1994, three film students disappeared in the woods near Burkittsville, Maryland while filming a documentary. A year later, their film was found.
Venture into a land haunted by the souls of the dead from the fierce and deadly Battle of South Mountain during the Civil War and an infamous witch hunt.
