Psychological thriller The Signifier, which first launched on PC last October, is getting an extended director’s cut on PlayStation 5 and PS4 this year, which will feature new narrative content, including “new memories, dialogue, and voiceover, three additional story endings, and a new epilogue giving greater insight to key characters and choices”.
The title – described as a “surreal first-person adventure” – blends “experimental investigation [with] psychology and artificial intelligence”. The blurb explains: “When the vice president of the world’s largest tech company turns up dead in her home, it’s up to you to explore her memories and emotions with a revolutionary brain scanner to uncover what happened.”
The game will run at 60 frames-per-second in 4K on Sony’s next-gen console, and will also boast various optimisations compared to its PC predecessor. There’ll also be an extra difficulty setting for those planning to revisit the release and play through the story multiple times. You can get a taste for the experience in the trailer embedded above, with a release planned for later this year.
