Lone Survivor is making a break for PS3 and Vita this summer, featuring two new locations and sidequests, new NPC dialogue, more than 20 fresh items, and a new ending, all initially exclusive to Sony consoles. Lone Survivor will support Cross Buy, Cross Play and Trophies.
From developer Jasper Byrne, Lone Survivor is a blend of psychological horror, point-and-click adventure and survival simulation, starring a man in a city brimming with disease and monstrous creatures. While those circumstances are terrifying enough, the protagonist questions how much of what he sees is even real, taking players on a deep mental journey as they battle the physical demons.
"I wanted to try and make a role-playing game with meaningful choices," Byrne writes on his Superflat Games blog. "It's an experiment in making every insignificant fact in the game having an invisible, or murkily visible effect on your outcome, however small."
Byrne is looking into touch control for inventory management and movement, and any features that can make the PSN version "enhanced in every way, smoother, nicer to control." Lone Survivor launched on PC and Mac in March 2012 and Byrne announced the Sony versions in November.

Critically acclaimed survival horror game is Curve's latest high-profile indie collaboration project
London, UK – 13/03/2013: Curve confirmed rumours today that it would be bringing Jasper Byrne's critically acclaimed psychological survival game Lone Survivor to PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita.
The development of Lone Survivor for PlayStation is Curve's latest high-profile indie collaboration. It follows the announcement of their work on converting Mike Bithell's BAFTA-winning platforming adventure Thomas Was Alone for PS3 and PS Vita for release this spring.
The version of Lone Survivor released on Sony consoles will feature exclusive expanded content, including new locations, sidequests and items. Players will also be able to finish the game with a new ending.
Speaking about the collaboration, Lone Survivor's creator Jasper Byrne said "Lone Survivor's release on PlayStation consoles is a dream come true for me. I've been a big fan of Sony's hardware all my life. I really hope PS3 and Vita owners enjoy the game and its new content."
Curve's Director Richie Turner added "We're very happy to be partnering with Jasper on this project. I've always been a massive fan of Lone Survivor and PS Vita is the perfect platform for the game. The Cross Save functionality means players will always be up to date if they're playing on PS3."
Lone Survivor will be available on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita via the PlayStation Network this summer.
