RÉPUBLIQUE DEBUTS ON PLAYSTATION 4, INCLUDING THE FIFTH AND FINAL EPISODE – ‘TERMINUS’
GungHo Online Entertainment America, Inc. and Seattle-based development studio Camouflaj announced today that the critically acclaimed stealth-action game République is now available on the PlayStation®4 (PS4™) which includes the highly anticipated, series-concluding “Episode 5: Terminus,” also released on PC, Mac and mobile devices (iOS and Android) today.
In “Terminus,” the fifth and final episode of the thrilling République saga, Hope’s story of escape becomes one of revenge, as she and the player learn that freedom can’t be won by running away.
Exclusive to the PS4™ edition releasing today is a new control scheme allowing players to take full control of Hope, the game’s protagonist. She is a prisoner of Metamorphosis, a shadowy totalitarian state ruled by the omnipresent Overseer. Players take on the role of an anonymous benefactor who guides Hope to freedom by hacking into the Overseer’s elaborate surveillance network. But as the game progresses, more is revealed about the sinister global ambitions of the top secret facility, which holds her captive.
“We’re thrilled to have ATLUS and NIS America as partners who have expanded the reach of République, a game we’ve worked so hard on for many years,” said Ryan Payton, founder of Camouflaj. “We are confident that our dedicated fans will be pleased with the epic series finale, as will the brand-new audience on PS4 who will be able to play the entire five-episode game as a long-form experience.”
“Terminus” is available with the full season on Steam for $24.99 or as an individual episode on mobile devices for $4.99 on both the App Store and Google Play. Players who purchased the full season will receive “Episode 5: Terminus” today.
PS4™ players can purchase the retail version of the entire five-episode game for $24.99/CA$39.99 from participating retailers throughout North America through a distribution partnership with ATLUS. The game is also available digitally on the PlayStation®Store for the same price.
NIS America is distributing a limited “Contraband Edition” for $44.99 on its online store. Available in limited quantities, the “Contraband Edition” includes physical République-themed products, such as the soundtrack and The Manifesto, a 160-page collector’s edition book that describes life inside Metamorphosis.
Developed by Seattle-based Camouflaj and led by industry veteran Ryan Payton, République has received numerous awards and accolades, including the “Excellence in Storytelling” award from the International Mobile Gaming Awards (IMGA) and has 80 percent positive reviews on Steam.
