Asmodee Digital and Sony Interactive Entertainment have announced today that the critically acclaimed railway-themed board game Ticket to Ride will be launching on PlayStation 4 through its PlayLink brand later this year. The game, which tasks players with collecting cards that enable them to plan railway routes throughout the world, has been a popular board game for some time but is now making the leap into the digital world.
“Digital board games are a natural fit for Sony PlayLink, and bring the tradition of board game nights to PlayStation gamers,” Pierre Ortolan, Asmodee Digital’s CEO, said. “By casting the game to a phone screen, players can hide their hands and plan their moves without revealing everything to their opponents. PlayLink allows us [to] re-create the traditional board game experience while keeping the benefits of playing digitally. We are honored to have partnered with Sony Interactive Entertainment and look forward to sharing ‘Ticket to Ride’ with PlayStation gamers.”
