Xing: The Land Beyond has come a long way since its 2013 Kickstarter days, releasing on HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and traditional monitors back in late 2017. Today, indie studio White Lotus Interactive cuts another important notch on their belt as they bring the otherworldly puzzle-adventure to PS4 and PSVR— along with it some well-timed DLC to all platforms.
The game, which sends you on a head-scratching journey through the land of the dead, will be available today on the US PlayStation Store for PS4 and PSVR.
White Lotus says the European release is slated for February 13th, or possibly later depending on Sony’s regional scheduling.
At the time of this writing, White Lotus hasn’t released pricing info, although the game is currently $20 on Steam, so we’d expect to see similar pricing on the PlayStation platform as well. The studio says PlayStation Plus Members will also be able to pick up Xing at a discount this week.
The PlayStation 4 version is launching with an exclusive new level too. Dubbed ‘Agnirok’, White Lotus says in a blogpost that the new level is “a combination of our Short Stories and Main Levels, and includes a new puzzle mechanic.”
Also incoming—this time to all supported platforms—is a new level called ‘Ice Scape’, a similar combination level that features a new story along with a complex puzzle, taking place is a pretty frosty-looking environment.
In Xing, you’re tasked with earning your freedom by freeing other spirits trapped in the ‘inbetween’. Spirits help you along the way with the game’s various puzzles as you make your way to the final gate of oblivion.
We haven’t had a chance to go hands-on with Xing, although it’s fared well with its userbase, garnering a ‘Very Positive’ user ranking on Steam (Vive, Rift) and a [4.6/5] stars on the Oculus Store (Rift).
