July 5, 2016 Written by Jason Dunning

A third-person action-adventure game with an old-school sci-fi story, Lifeless Planet Premier Edition from Stage 2 Studios and Serenity Forge is coming to PlayStation 4 on July 19 in North America.

A remastered version of Lifeless Planet, the Premier Edition includes an updated main character model with more details and double the texture resolution. Additionally, the game runs on an updated game engine and includes advanced physically based shaders and improved lighting.

The story in Lifeless Planet sees an astronaut discovering an abandoned Russian town while searching for life on a distant planet. He thinks it’s a hoax at first, but changes his mind when a young woman saves him from a strange and deadly phenomenon.

Creator David Board said:

Lifeless Planet was inspired by Cold War era science fiction stories, posing questions about humankind’s desire for space travel. What if you journeyed across the galaxy to another planet, only to find humans had already been there? What kind of person would sign up for a one-way mission, leaving behind planet Earth and everyone they’ve ever known and loved… to go in search of an Earth-like planet?

And here’s a list of features:

  • Explore 20 unique and atmospheric environments on a vast and treacherous planet.
  • Follow a mysterious young woman as she guides you past dangerous terrain and deadly life-forms.
  • Investigate the startling discovery of an abandoned Russian town.
  • Experience an exciting and intriguing story through rich graphics and cinematic cut-scenes.

If the PS4 version is anything like the PC and Xbox One versions, expect Lifeless Planet Premier Edition to cost $19.99.
