Meridiem Games and Quantic Dream have announced they’re collaborating to release a new physical version of Fahrenheit on PS4. Dubbed the 15th Anniversary Edition, this new physical release will be available to buy in retail across Europe and Australia in late November, and will cost £24.99 / €29.99.
What The Hell Is Fahrenheit?
Oh, buckle up. Fahrenheit, or Indigo Prophecy to give it its American name, was a narrative adventure game from David Cage, founder of Quantic Dream. Before becoming more mainstream with titles like Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls and Detroit: Become Human, Quantic Dream released Fahrenheit in 2005, and it’s certainly something to behold.
In the early-going, players control both sides of a police manhunt, as the game opens in the shoes of Lucas Kane, an everyday guy who just happens to commit a murder in the bathroom of a diner. With no memory of what happened, Lucas flees the scene, at which point the story switches to detectives Carla Valenti and Tyler Miles. Essentially, you’re supposed to be in control of how well Lucas covers his tracks, and how efficient the police are at hunting him down.
It’s a brilliant enough premise, but if you haven’t yet experience the story of Fahrenheit, I’d implore you to pick up a copy, either through this retail release or via the PlayStation Store, where the PS2 version is available to buy digitally. The plot and characters manage to veer further off the rails than the train at the beginning of Unbreakable, and it’s just a sight to behold. Seriously, give it a go if you haven’t already.
So What’s In The 15th Anniversary Edition?
Aside from the game on disc, obviously, the package will also include a newly designed case and sleeve, some stickers, an artbook and a special letter written by the developers of the original game. The Fahrenheit: 15th Anniversary Edition is available to pre-order right now from selected retailers, and if I hadn’t sworn not to buy games until next-gen comes out, I’d be buying one myself.
