Inside comes to PS4 on August 23rd

The brilliant follow-up to Limbo is headed to PS4 much sooner than expected.

Inside launched as an Xbox One exclusive a little over a month ago, but it turns out PlayStation fans won't have long to wait until they can experience the acclaimed 2D puzzle platformer.

Developer Playdead has announced the game will make its way to PS4 on August 23rd. This marks a vast improvement over the studio's previous game, Limbo, which took a year to release on a Sony console.  

Despite having hefty boots to fill, Inside received rave reviews when it launched on Xbox One, with many suggesting the follow-up not only lives up to, but surpasses the brilliance of its predecessor. 

Inside bears a striking resemblance to Limbo both visually and technically; it stars a young boy exploring a primarily monochromatic world where failure to correctly traverse the gloomy, puzzle-filled environments results in a certain and traumatically gruesome death for the tiny hero. 

The news of the inbound PS4 version was also accompanied by a new trailer, which you can check out below:
