After reporting on the possibility of PlayDead’s 2010 XBLA hit, Limbo, coming to the PlayStation Network, it turns out that the game will indeed be coming to PSN, and to Steam as well. The game is set for a July 19th release on PSN (July 20th in Europe, and sometime later in Japan) and an August 2nd worldwide release date on Steam. It’ll give players on other platforms the chance to finally experience the charmingly dark little platformer/puzzler that made so many waves a year ago.
One of my chief complaints about Limbo (echoed by many others) is that it’s too short for the price. While no price has been announced, having it cost $10 instead of $15 would seem a lot more reasonable considering it’s been out for a year. Also, PlayDead’s Dino Patti made mention of “a little extra secret we have in store for you…” on the PlayStation Blog but did not elaborate, so it seems there will at least be some exclusive content here. What exactly it entails is anyone’s guess, but we’ll know soon enough.
