RedBedlam in association with Standfast Interactive, has announced that upcoming, genre-hopping FPS, Bedlam, will be released for PlayStation 4 in August.
The game, based on the novel of the same name by acclaimed author Christopher Brookmyre, will also be released for Xbox One, Windows PC and Mac on August 13th 2015.
“Bedlam has been a labour of love for over eighteen months” said author, Christopher Brookmyre. “It’s been great to work so closely on the project alongside the passionate team at RedBedlam. They’ve put a ton of effort into transferring the Bedlam ‘gameverse’ from page to screen, and it’s really great to know that gamers will soon get to experience it all firsthand.”
In Bedlam, players take on the role of Heather Quinn (aka Athena), a programmer at medical scanning developer Neurosphere, who finds herself transported into the world of Starfire: a nineties FPS she remembers from her teen years. Searching for an explanation and a way home, she ventures beyond Starfire, to discover a vast realm of interconnected game worlds documenting the evolution of the FPS genre and of video games in general.
