The Persistence is an atmospheric and intense roguelike spin on the survival-horror genre set aboard a starship floating in the darkest depths of space. Players take on the role of cloned security officer Zimri Elder as she battles mutants aboard her seemingly doomed vessel, one that redesigns itself each time she is killed. Will she ever be able to make the necessary repairs and return the ship to Earth, or is she doomed to relive this nightmare for eternity?
The Persistence was first released back in 2018 as a PlayStation 4 VR title. It was so well received that Firesprite ported it to PC and console, ultimately leading to the much anticipated physical releases this weekend.
The game will drop for UK players on Nintendo Switch on July 31st, with PlayStation 4 and Xbox One receiving their own physical launch from September 4th. Fans in the US will have to wait until the stateside launch on September 29th, but we’re sure it’s going to be worth the wait to add this unique title to your physical collection.
You can check out the official blurb here:
The Persistence offers a brutal take on survival-horror that integrates an innovative rogue-like design into the genre and players are tasked with surviving aboard a doomed deep space colony starship in the year 2521. Said ship is overrun with horrific and murderous aberrations that make their presence known as players explore, evade and fight their way through the depths of an ever-changing labyrinth to bring the ship back to Earth.
We here at Two Beard Gaming hope to have a review of The Persistence in the coming weeks.
