A brutal VR sci-fi-stealth, horror, roguelike, The Persistence challenges you to survive aboard a doomed colony ship, overrun with mutants. The crew have all been killed, but the Security Officer and Engineer survive as digital recordings... With just a clone printer to provide host bodies, and an Armory Fabricator to supply weapons, can you survive long enough to repair the ship and make it back home?


First person horror meets roguelike exploration in VR

Everyone’s dead… even you. But there’s a slim chance you could still escape, and take back your life, if only you can repair the ship’s devastated systems before the black hole that has trapped it rips The Persistence apart. In an entirely new kind of stealth horror game, exclusively for PlayStation 4 with PlayStation VR, you must hide in the shadows and battle terrifying mutants as you strive to get the engines back on line, plot a course – and somehow get the ship back to earth. Can you stay alive long enough to save The Persistence?


Different every time

An insurmountable horde stands between you and success, and to make matters worse the ship’s macrostructure is malfunctioning, rearranging the deck modules into random configurations. Procedurally generated decks mean that no two games of The Persistence will play the same – and every time you awaken in another clone host, a new challenge awaits you on the next deck…


Stealth and VR, a perfect match

The heart-pounding thrills of a stealth game are raised to new levels by the immersive presence of VR. Sneaking around, hiding behind cover – feel the adrenalin pumping as you lean out of safety to see the terrifying dangers that stalk you in the dark. 


Collaborative Play: Phone a Friend

Your friends can also help out by connecting to the game with their phone or tablet and hacking into the ships engineering systems.

Once inside the ship’s system, they can control doors, freeze or distract enemies, disable traps and find hidden items to scavenge for the VR player. Watch out, though – sometimes they can get rewarded if you die… and with the ability to spawn and lure enemies, do you really trust your friends?
