Publisher 505 Games and developer Raccoon Logic will release Journey to the Savage Planet: Employee of the Month Edition for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series on February 14 for $29.99, the companies announced. Users who already own Journey to the Savage Planet for PlayStation 4 or Xbox One will be able to upgrade to the PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series version free of charge.
Here is an overview of the game, via 505 Games:
That’s right, Valued Employee, your journey to ARY-26 as part of the Pioneer Program is now even better (improving on perfection has been hard!) with juicy downloadable content, new ads, bonus chats with Martin Tweed and an enhanced photo mode! Even better, the game is now fully optimized for new consoles AND features a Performance vs. Graphics option. Honestly, you barely deserve it, but you’re welcome. We’ll give you a moment to collect yourself and digest that amazing news.
Digested? Good. Experience planets ARY-26 and DLC-1 with support for up to 4K (native or upscale) on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. And if you previously bought the game, you get the upgrade for free! What a time to be alive!
As you might already know, Kindred Aerospace is responsible for determining the viability of human life on planet ARY-26. Data suggests the planet’s atmosphere may have hallucinogenic properties, but as you know, we have a strong anti-drug policy. Learn about the planet’s undiscovered flora and fauna and document the bizarre life forms our researchers have scientifically classified as “icky.” Conduct research with the standard tools of the trade: laser pistols, bombs, acid, and other explosives or requisition ARY-26’s resources to create tools using 3D printing technology. Just remember that your benefits don’t include health insurance. You die, it’s your fault, Valued Employee.
“We’ve been through an acquisition, we’ve been made redundant, we’ve formed a new company, and reacquired our IP, but somehow, somehow, the Employee of the Month Edition of our wacky game is finally coming to new consoles,” said Raccoon Logic creative director Alex Hutchinson in a press release (“weeping only a little”). “Thanks to everyone who supported us, especially you, Value Employee. You’re my favorite, whatever your name is.”
Journey to the Savage Planet is currently available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC via Steam, Epic Games Store, GOG, and Humble Store.
