Kepler Interactive and Ironwood Studios announced their survival adventure road trip Pacific Drive will launch on PlayStation 5 and PC via Epic Games Store on February 22, 2024.
Further, the publisher revealed their retail exclusive physical release on PS5, coming later in Spring 2024. This version will include the base game, a set of three art cards from the heart of the Olympic Exclusion Zone, traveler’s journal, deluxe sleeve, reversible coversheet as well as a pack of in-game cosmetic items for your station wagon.
Pacific Drive invites players to explore the enigmatic Olympic Exclusion Zone, a once-thriving region in the Pacific Northwest, now isolated behind a massive 300-meter wall. This zone, central to the game’s narrative, has transformed into a land of mysteries and untamed nature. Players embark on a journey through new and intriguing biomes, delving deeper into the unknown. The game is not just about exploration; it’s a quest to chart the Zone, discover its concealed history, and evade the lethal anomalies that make this surreal environment so perilous.
The player’s primary companion in this adventure is a uniquely outfitted station wagon, which serves as more than just transportation. This vehicle is vital for survival and must be carefully maintained and upgraded with essential tools. As players navigate the hazardous terrain, they must also gather supplies and withstand intense encounters with the Zone’s dangers. Adding to the eerie atmosphere, mysterious transmissions crackle through the car’s radio as players venture further into the Zone, posing questions and issuing ominous warnings. These signals hint at the presence of others in this desolate area, adding layers of intrigue and suspense. The game challenges players to survive in this haunting landscape, posing the question: Will you endure and uncover the Zone’s secrets, or become yet another forgotten remnant of its past?
