A post from PlayStation blog has revealed that indie game There Came an Echo will be coming to PS4 on May 31st.
There Came an Echo is a strategy game focusing on the character Corrin Webb, “an ordinary cryptographer”. Webb is thrown into a deadly game of secret agendas when he is tracked down by a group of mercenaries. Being guided by “the mysterious Val”, Webb will have to escape from a foe that has “seemingly limitless resources” and discover what his own unbreakable algorithm, Radial Lock, is protecting.
The main focus of There Came an Echo is the use of voice commands for controlling units. The voice commands let you do a number of things, including moving your units to particular points across the map, issuing targets for your units to attack and switching between weapons, just to name a few. But if you don’t like the sound of the commands given to you in the game, you can change the phrase or the name of a character to something you prefer. For example, you could use “power to forward deflectors” to replace the phrase “shields up”. Iridium Studios has said in the post that they worked directly with Sony’s engineers “to modify internal libraries, all in order to make There Came an Echo’s exceptionally complex voice recognition work”.
There Came an Echo will also have a stellar voice cast with the likes of Wil Wheaton, Ashly Burch, Laura Bailey, and Yuri Lowenthal voicing characters in the game. So, are you looking forward to giving There Came an Echo a shot? Let us know in the comments below.
