Sony consoles are getting ready to welcome a new pearl of the independent scene this summer. Indeed, Lone Survivor, the vintage survival-horror by Jasper Byrn arrives on PS3 and PS Vita after seducing PC gamers.
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.

But every chance of introducing that variety they either drop, cancel or don't follow through with improved sequels. E3 needs to be amazing from them. (1 Hour ago)
Before we get them. They need variety to bring in new people. Because forza and halo aren't going to do that (1 Hour ago)
@Moonwalker: basically MS say a lot of things but nothing about what they're ouputting suggests any of it is true. Even if they announce new games, or a SO, or recore sequel, it could be years (1 Hour ago)
I think people who want Rainbow Six to have a narrative focus must be the minority. (1 Hour ago)
@AndreasZ94: I don't think of GR as one of those service games is all. And I'm not sure that Rainbow Six would benefit from having a narrative focus is all. (1 Hour ago)
@AndreasZ94: why does it have to be single player *only* anyway? Games like Halo get by just fine doing both. I think there's room for all three experiences. SP, MP, and games that do both. (1 Hour ago)
Going to guess one is the new Wolfenstein and the other maybe The Evil Within 2, hope not. Please let it be Bethesda Game Studios' new IP. (2 Hours ago)
