Submerged Surfaces on PS4 August 4th

G’day from Australia! Ed Orman here again, and I’m very excited to be able to finally announce that Submerged is coming to your PS4 on August 4th! And to kick things off, for a limited time PlayStation Plus members will receive a 20% discount on the game starting at launch.

Submerged is a third-person, combat-free game in which you explore a mysterious, flooded city and discover the beauty of desolation in vast outdoor environments. You take on the role of Miku, a young girl who has brought her wounded brother to the city in their small fishing boat.

Navigate the flooded city streets by boat, scale the drowned buildings, and use your telescope to scour the city for the supplies needed to save your dying sibling. As you explore the city at your own pace, you encounter the habitat that flourishes in this colorful place and discover hidden objects that piece together the story of a broken world and a broken family.

Submerged won Best Audio at this years Freeplay Festival, largely due to the beautiful musical score provided by BAFTA-Award Winner Jeff Van Dyck. And Unreal Engine 4 lets us make the game visually stunning, so we’re really looking forward to finally having it in player’s hands.

See you in August!

  • Game looks amazing! Can’t wait to pick up day one. Any details on the price?

    • yowzagabowza

      What is the matter with everyone that freaking prices are such a god dam secret? Its great that plus gets a day one discount, but tell us what the price is. It’s getting REALLY old. Are you embarrassed? Do you think it will hurt sales? Its basic info, guys.
      And while im at it, DEMOS. Where’d they go? With all the indies (with their toootally unique play styles) on ps4 demos are more important than ever. Especially with the price hike on ps4. But what do we get instead? An uncharted demo for a old ass game. So dumb.

      Yow, man you really need to chill out. This whole spoiled baby look doesn’t suit you. #CHECKYOURENTITLEMENT

      @ WolfyHopeless
      You’re stripping the word ‘entitled’ of all meaning by using it with such wanton abandon.

      The guy asked for a PRICE and a DEMO. They weren’t saying they wanted the game for free. They wanted to know how much a product cost and wanted to be able to try it first to see if they like it.

      As a potential paying customer, they are entitled to at least know the price, and demos used to be standard industry practice not five years ago. Every major game that launched at the beginning of the PS3’s life-cycle had an accompanying demo, so that you could see if you actually liked a product that you were about to spend money on.

  • I really love the look and feel of this game, especially as it kinda brings to mind games like ICO. Looking forward to playing it :-)

    • Feels? You’re Funny. Games don’t have feelings.

      Lord I apologize…and be with the little pygmy in New Guinea, amen.

    • Hatchetforce

      No, but games like many experiences may engender feelings. Seeing as to how his remark is a standard usage and laden with common sense, what he infers isn’t that difficult to grasp.

    What a pleasant surprise. For some reason I had it in my head that this was coming much later in the year or even next year. Can’t wait to play!

  • Looks interesting. I really hope they come through on the concept of collecting items and information that fills in the story of the world and how it collapsed.

  • A combat free game this has potential to be reply good.

  • wow this looks beautiful, very interesting

  • N7Spartansw0rd

    Looks great, can’t wait

  • The only question I really have is… PS Plus members get 20% off, of how much?

  • iamsirjoshua

    This looks great, as I love the idea of non-combat games. Hopefully it ends up better than something like Wander.

    • My goodness Wander was a MESS! Fortunately Sony was nice enough to refund my $25 for that towering pile of excrement! And yes, here’s hoping submerged is better, it sure as heck looks like it will be!

  • Wow, this looks really good! I’m so excited, and August 4 is so soon!

  • Looking real good in my eyes just want to know the price. Most likely it will be 15 or 20 bucks. Any chance we can get a demo it’s looks like fun but I get scared to try digital games before I can test it out.

  • Nice style of game. Can’t wait!

  • When will it be up on the store? I went to pre-order right after seeing this and it’s not showing up :(

    • Most likely, there wont be a preorder for this one. I’d expect it to be available mid day (pacific time) August 4th!

  • Comes out on the first Tuesday of the month, or as I like to call it, IGC Tuesday! I doubt this will be included in Augusts IGC, but it’s possible with the vagueness of this posting as it includes info on a discount, but not the price (also, there’s no preorder).

  • Wow cool didn’t expect this game to launch so soon.The announcement post made it look like it was coming next year.Oh well good news but it would be even better if a demo was coming too…I don’t understand you devs of PSN games not releasing demos of your games….you’re losing sales.

  • Been waiting for this one. Day One for me.

  • FreshRevenge

    Maybe it is just me but the way she climbs seems like she isn’t afraid of falling to her death. She climbs that ladder like she was in a hurry or something?

    So I am assuming her brother is sick and you have to scour the remaining buildings for supplies that may have medicine. The game looks good but I hope some sort of demo would be release for this.

  • Thanks for the Gameplay trailer, the game looks beautiful. But I have questions. Are there any challenges in the game or is it just about following the story until you get to the end? Can you actually lose?

    Also, why didn’t you post a price? You want people to buy your game don’t you?

  • PINBALWIZARD33

    I was wondering will this come out,on disc?What will the price be?This game and others used to covered in the Official Playstation Magazine, in the United States.Do you know why there is not a publication, anymore in the United States?I have noticed there is still one in United Kingdom! But,the subscription is 6 times more,to have it delivered in the United States!!!Can there be another Official Playstation Mag,started back up,in the United States? It used to be Sony and Playstation set the bar.Now,we have to read Microsoft ‘s magazine and PC Gamer.They DO NOT favor anything Playstation!!Alot of information has been lost.This magazine has been out of circulation,at a year before the PS4!!

  • Kid_Fleetfoot

    Can’t review a game I didn’t play but the description and video leaves me thinking it has potential. I like games where one can just walk around like the ETHAN CARTER game.

  • do we have a price here?
