October 17, 2016 Written by Jason Dunning

Deponia, the first chapter in the adventure trilogy already available on PC/Mac and iPad, is coming to PlayStation 4 on November 15, Daedalic Entertainment announced today. In addition to a digital release through the PlayStation Store, Deponia will be available at retail in “selected countries,” though Daedalic didn’t say which ones.

An Xbox One version of Deponia will be released in the near future, and the remaining two installments of Deponia will be released on PS4 and Xbox One by the end of October 2017.

Along with re-worked controls that now let you directly control Rufus, the protagonist, here’s what you need to know about Deponia for PS4:

Deponia marks the beginning of the adventure trilogy previously released for PC, Mac and iPad. Taking center stage is Rufus, a cranky and ill-tempered inhabitant of the junk planet Deponia. He lives in a small settlement somewhere in the most remote quadrant of the planet-wide garbage dump of Deponia. But Rufus feels destined for greater things and dreams of a life on the spaceship Elysium, the floating city high above the planet’s surface.

When the beautiful Goal suddenly falls from these privileged spheres into a neighboring trash heap, Rufus sees his chance. He decides to take the unconscious beauty back home. Though this plan provides only a vague glimmer of hope at first, an unscrupulous scheme soon takes shape: Rufus turns out to be an exact likeness of Goal’s fiancé from the upper world. The planned handover is the start of a dizzying chase, full of crazy mix-ups…
