Journey releasing on PC in early June

Critically acclaimed indie title will be available from the Epic Games store

Celebrated indie adventure game Journey will be released on PC on June 6 through the Epic Games store, publisher Annapurna Interactive has announced.

It’s available to pre-order now for $14.99/£11.99, although US customers can currently get it for $4.99 as part of the Epic Games store Mega Sale promotion.

Following earlier releases Flow and Flower, Journey was the third and final title in a three-game exclusivity deal developer Thatgamecompany signed with publisher Sony.

It was originally released for PS3 via PlayStation Network in March 2012 and became the fastest-selling game on the service in both the US and Europe, before arriving on PS4 in July 2015.

Thatgamecompany describes it as an “anonymous adventure” — players can meet and assist each other on their journey, but they’re unable to communicate via speech or text (instead, the game features an audio ping system) and their names aren’t revealed to one another until after the game’s been completed.

“Explore the ancient, mysterious world of Journey as you soar above ruins and glide across sands to discover its secrets,” reads the Epic Games store product description.

“Play alone or in the company of a fellow traveler and explore its vast world together. Featuring stunning visuals and a Grammy-nominated musical score, Journey delivers a breathtaking experience like no other.”

Journey won multiple game of the year awards and both the PS3 and PS4 versions have a score of 92 on review aggregation site Metacritic, based on 78 and 45 reviews respectively.
