The PS4 is losing an Xbox-exclusive console next week, or more specifically, the Xbox One, though the game will be playable on Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X via backward compatibility. Unlike Xbox, which has struggled to develop compelling exclusive games for Xbox One, Sony has delivered a variety of not only great games but also generation-defining titles, most of which were exclusive to its latest PlayStation machine. generation. These PS4 exclusives include God of the war, Ghost of Tsushima, transmitted by blood, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, Marvel’s Spider-Man, The Last of Us Part 2, Death stranding, and Horizon Zero Dawn. None of these games are coming to Xbox One, and they never will because they are proprietary versions. That said, Harbinger of sorrow – a non-proprietary PS4 exclusive – arrives on Xbox One on September 15. According to developer AOne Games and publisher Eastasiasoft, the horror fighting game will be available at 20% off during its first two weeks of release.
Harbinger of sorrow debuted in November 2018 via the PS4, and only the PS4. A year later, it arrived on PC through the Epic Games Store. So far, this is the only platform it has branched out into, but next week that will change. As for a Nintendo Switch version and a PS5 version and an Xbox Series X | S version, there is still no word on what the game will be coming to these platforms. What the pair note is that the game is coming to Steam “very soon”.
“Harbinger of sorrow is a classic 2D four-button fighting game, featuring graphics powered by Unreal Engine 4, a cast of characters inspired by classic horror, fantasy and mythology, and a combat system designed from the ground up for take advantage of player skills, rather than stats or haphazard, with deep combat mechanics that favor movement and spacing over tight execution to provide an engaging experience for pros and newcomers alike, ”reads. we in an official pitch of the game.
While the PS4 technically loses an exclusive console with this, PlayStation fans probably won’t care much. When released, the game only managed to get a 64 on Metacritic, and sadly, it’s unclear how it holds up in 2021, and how many playerbase it has.
