The Town of Light first lit up the PC gaming world a few years back, but today, Wired Productions and Italian devs, LKA.it have announced that they will be bringing a fully updated version of the award winning psychological adventure to both console and PC.

Arriving at some point in Q2 2017, Xbox One and PS4 players will get a first look at The Town of Light, whilst PC gamers will also be able to head off and experience the updated version. It’ll offer fresh story-supporting content and a whole host of enhancements over the original release. It will also offer new puzzles, additional story elements, reworked voiceover dialogue, more interactive elements and a huge graphical and UI overhaul that aims to deliver a more polished and immersive experience.

A  first-person, psychological story-driven adventure game set in the Volterra Psychiatric Asylum – a former mental treatment facility based in Tuscany, Italy, The Town of Light will take you on a trip to the asylum which was shut down in the late 1970s due to an Italian law that instructed all asylums to close completely and give back patients their civil rights. Based on extensive research and inspired by real facts, The Town of Light is played through the fictional eyes of Renée, a 16-year-old girl who suffers from the symptoms of mental illness. She is searching for answers to the many questions from her past, while she explores and uncovers the place where she spent most of her youth. What happens next is a dark and emotional journey where the lines of interactive entertainment, storytelling, and reality frequently tend to blur.

After winning multiple awards back in both 2014 and 2015, it’s pretty exciting to see an updated version making its way to our consoles.

“Thanks to their passion for the game and Renee’s story, we are immensely proud to bring The Town of Light to console audiences together with Wired Productions,” said Luca Dalcò, Creative Director at LKA.it. “It has been a long journey and our experience developing the PC version allowed us to learn a lot. Those learnings and the warm community feedback were instrumental in creating the enhanced version of the game we are developing.”

“We followed the progress of The Town of Light since its first showcase in 2014, and we are really excited to work with Luca and his team to bring this very special experience to console,” added Leo Zullo, Managing Director at Wired Productions. “The merging of real events and places with a powerful and an often uncomfortable storyline makes for a compelling combination.”

We will of course bring you more as and when we have it.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore.
