Lake PS5 and PS4 versions finally have a release date. The slice-of-life interactive story game will release on Sony’s platforms on Friday, April 8th, following a successful launch on PC and Xbox consoles last September. Over on Twitter, developer Gamious thanked PlayStation players for their patience and said that it needed some extra development time.
Lake PS5 is getting a physical release
Perp Games has announced that it’ll release Lake physically at retailers worldwide. However, only the game’s PS5 version is listed on its website. It’s unclear if the PS4 version will get a physical release or not.
Lake lovers, listen up! We’re super excited to finally bring our game to @PlayStation this Friday, April 8th!
Thanks for your patience, everyone. Granted, it needed a little time in the oven, but now that it’s (almost) here, we hope you’ll enjoy it. Who wants coffee and pie? https://t.co/TRodS2P6Xs

For the uninitiated, Lake is an open-world game that consists of free-roaming driving sim elements, and a story-driven point-and-click adventure. Set in 1986 is Providence Oaks, Oregon, the game has players assuming the role of Meredith Weiss, who leaves a flashy city life behind for two weeks to visit her charming lakeside hometown and deliver mail on her father’s behalf as he’s out. When her two-week vacation is up, Meredith must decide if she wants to stay or return to her city life. Check out a brief trailer below.
According to Gamious, the game has been optimized for the PS5 but we’re not told what the optimizations entail. We’re assuming that it has a graphics mode or two, and utilizes the DualSense’s features.
