Experience Journey, Out Today on PlayStation 4

“St. Augustine wrote: ‘People will venture to the heights of the mountains to seek wonder. They will stand and stare at the widths of the oceans to be filled with wonder. Yet they will pass each another in the street and feel nothing.’ Every individual is a miracle. Journey is a reminder of the wonders we find in each other. - Jenova Chen, Creative Director, Journey

In partnership with original creators, thatgamecompany, and developer, Tricky Pixels; today we are proud to bring the award-winning experience to PlayStation 4. Journey for PlayStation 4 supports cross-buy, meaning if you have digitally purchased it already for PS3, you can download it free for PS4, and vice-versa.

Additionally, we are also releasing for sale a very elegant Journey dynamic theme to bring your PlayStation 4 dashboard to the ruins and sands of this beautiful universe.

Two weeks ago we launched #OurJourney at journey.playstation.com, and asked “What Did Your Journey Experience Mean To You?,” and the response was far beyond our emotional expectations. Today we continue #OurJourney, and encourage everyone who has ascended the mountain on PS3 or is beginning right now on PlayStation 4, to share what it meant to you.

  • Grab your phone, turn it toward you, record, and share your video testimonial on YouTube & Twitter
  • Please tag it with the hashtag #OurJourney and visit journey.playstation.com to see if we feature it, and include it in our upcoming testimonial reel.

Here are a few incredible #OurJourney testimonials that may inspire you:

Finally, we have a pretty cool surprise to share we’ve kept under wraps until now. Since Journey debuted in 2012, PlayStation fans worldwide have iconized the game through cosplay, artwork, and many other forms of fandom. Today we’re happy to open the online doors to the new Journey PlayStation Gear Store which has some incredible official merchandise, including the first ever Journey collectible statue:

I’ve been excited to play this game for a really long time, but because it was only on PS3 I’ve never had a chance. Now I’m going to play it today when I get home! I’m so grateful for this port!

Such an amazing game, I’m glad to get to play it again on the ps4. This is one of those that everybody should at least play once, especially as low as the price is. It may not be long, but you can see that Journey has more heart put in it than pretty much any other current Gen games. Can’t wait to see what else you guys have cooking up!

Was just wondering if anyone can help me. I purchased the game digitally on my PS3 a few months after it was released and now I still don’t see the free download anywhere on my PS4, I’m in Nova Scotia, Canada if that makes any difference, I feel like this is taking far too long. Has anyone else been able to get it for free yet?

Truly a wonderful and amazing game; one of my new favorite games I’ve ever played. I indeed LOVE the artistic style and feel of the game, and considering that I am an artist and animator myself I’d love to know more about the animation software you used to create Journey. Could you possibly tell me more? -Dom

@Dom Thanks for sharing such kind words with us! To answer your question, I asked Journey Feel Engineer John Nesky, who told me:

“Maya was the tool that animators used to make animations for the main character. Outside of Maya, we also designed some animation-related features specifically for the game, mostly for blending between relevant animation loops such as walk-cycles.

Maya has many internal tools that were used for designing animations.
There are whole classes on how to use Maya, and our animators had years of animation experience with it.”

We hope that helps! Many wonderful Journeys to you.

I love Journey, it is unique in its category, and it really brought me a new interactve experience, with feelings and perceptions i never had anf felt before.
You guys really should keep working on the story of Journey, and release updates. It is an amazing game to be left behind with a single story.

Just played the game. It is an incredible piece of art–Intellectually stimulating and emotionally engaging. I have had many entertaining experiences playing games, but this may be the very first meaningful one that caused me to reflect on my own beliefs and see them represented in a beautiful allegory that I could experience firsthand. Great work. You’re bringing real value to this medium.
