Earlier today, developer Digixart And publisher Ravenscourt announced that their award-winning road-trip adventure, Road 96, will be coming to PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X | S, and Xbox One on April 14th.
The news comes by way of a tweet from the French studio’s official Twitter account, which you can see for yourself below:
For those unaware, Road 96 is a procedurally generated narrative-focused experience that shows players setting out on an epic journey of self-discovery. Not only is it inspired by the likes of Tarantino and The Coen Brothers, but it also brims with charming ’90s tunes and witty dialogue as you try and escape the authoritarian rule of Petria.
Our very own Chris Jecks reviewed Road 96 when it launched on PC last year and was thoroughly impressed with the title, finally awarding it a 4/5, concluding:
Road 96 is a special title well worth checking out for anyone with an itch for adventure. Its replayability may be limited, but for its budget price tag, it is a narrative-driven, decision-based adventure that almost completely delivers on its ambitious vision for the genre.
And for more information, here’s a general overview via an official press release we received today:
