Update (20 August 2019): Erica is now available on the Asian PlayStation Store for the price of just RM39.


During the Gamescom 2019 Opening Night Live press conference, a new PS4 exclusive live-action thriller a la Netflix’s Black Mirror: Bandersnatch was unexpectedly revealed to immediately launch today, simply titled ERICA.

Developed by Flavourworks, ERICA is essentially a live-action movie in which players will have the choice and option to shape the fate of Erica, a young woman who has been thrust into the middle of a murder mystery connected to her family’s history and the traumatic events that impacted her childhood.

Featuring a haunting score by acclaimed composer Austin Wintory (Journey), players will use either their DualShock 4 controller’s touchpad or the touchscreen of their mobile device to choose the multiple dialogue decisions and actions to influence the game’s multi-branching narrative.

They will also utilize the same controls to physically interact with their environment, including carefully placing a record player’s needle onto a vinyl or slowly peeking through doors to spy on people without being seen.

ERICA is currently available on the US PlayStation Store for US$9.99 or roughly RM42.

In the meantime, check out the trailer below.
