A JOUR­NEY UN­FOLDED

Tear­away Un­folded to be Re­leased for PS4 on Septem­ber 8, 2015

GAX (Malaysia) - - NEWSWIRE -

Con­trary to what most of you might be think­ing, not all games re­quire buck­et­loads of blood­shed and car­nage in or­der for it to be cap­ti­vat­ing. Take the up­com­ing Tear­away Un­folded as an ex­am­ple – it’s a vi­brant and light­hearted 3D-an­i­mated plat­former that’s set in the pa­pier-mâché town of Sog­port, where play­ers will be tak­ing con­trol of en­ve­lope-shaped mes­sen­ger, Iota, or his fe­male coun­ter­part, Atoi. Their mis­sion – as their en­ve­lope-shaped ap­pear­ances would al­ready sug­gest – is to de­liver them­selves to the in­tended re­cip­i­ents.

If you’re won­der­ing why the game’s ti­tle is so oddly fa­mil­iar, it’s be­cause Tear­away Un­folded is ac­tu­ally the PS4 port of the orig­i­nal BAFTA award-win­ning game, Tear­away, which was re­leased back in 2013 for the PS Vita. But don’t worry, the PS4 ver­sion of the game will have quite a num­ber of im­prove­ments in tow, in­clud­ing a new con­trol scheme, brand new ar­eas, 60 fps game­play, and of course – the abil­ity to play the master­fully de­signed game in Full HD (1,920 x 1,080).

Not only that, play­ers will also be able to use the PS4’s DualShock 4 con­troller to in­ter­act with the game as well. For ex­am­ple, by per­form­ing a per­fectly-timed swipe on the DualShock 4’s touch­pad, play­ers will be able to cast fe­ro­cious gusts of wind to hold back en­e­mies,

or ma­nip­u­late the game’s en­vi­ron­ment by point­ing the DualShock 4’s light bar to­wards the TV.

Tear­away Un­folded will be avail­able for pur­chase in both phys­i­cal and dig­i­tal for­mats dur­ing its of­fi­cial launch day on Septem­ber 8, 2015 for RM139 and RM125, re­spec­tively. PS Plus mem­bers, you’ll be given a 10-per­cent dis­count if you pur­chase the game be­tween Septem­ber 8 and 28.

On the other hand, play­ers who pre-or­der the game be­tween Au­gust 14 and Septem­ber 5 will re­ceive an adorable plush toy of the game’s male pro­tag­o­nist, Iota, as a spe­cial pre-or­der pre­mium – while stocks last.
