Vanishing of Ethan Carter coming to PS4 next week

Sony has confirmed the price and release date of the PS4 version of The Vanishing of Ethan Carter.

The completely rebuilt PS4 version of the Vanishing Carter will arrive on PS4 on Wednesday, July 15.

The game, as listed on the PlayStation Network pre-order page, will retail for £13.94 when it is released next week.

Rather than simply porting the PC version of the game, developer The Astronauts has rebuilt the game so that it feels better to play on console.

In fact, the PS4 version of Ethan Carter has been rebuilt in Unreal Engine 4, which will be offered for free to owners of the existing PC game at an unknown point in the future.
