Curve Digital and Molasses Flood to Release The Flame in the Flood: Complete Edition January 17 on PlayStation 4
[LONDON – January 5, 2017] PlayStation gamers get ready to raft down a perilous river filled with danger at every turn as the multi-award-winning The Flame in the Flood makes its PlayStation 4 debut on January 17. Launching as The Flame in the Flood: Complete Edition from The Molasses Flood and Curve Digital, this exclusive PlayStation 4 edition contains a brand new Directors’ Commentary – which offers incredible insight into the design and development – a wonderful dynamic theme, two new system avatars, plus a host of gameplay tweaks designed to offer the most complete The Flame in the Flood experience possible.
The Flame in the Flood is a voyage of the unknown through a visually beautiful, yet impossibly harsh wilderness. Taking place in post-societal America, players must traverse through procedurally-generated landscape, foraging for supplies, crafting survival tools and evading predators. It’s a hostile environment, with every fresh discovery providing players with reward or taking them a step closer to death.
Released on PC and Xbox One last year to critical acclaim, including numerous awards such as Game Informer’s “Best Game Soundtracks of 2016” and GameRant’s “Best 2016 Video Games You Didn’t Play,” The Flame in the Flood was created by The Molasses Flood, a team of AAA refugees, with veterans members hailing from the likes of Irrational, Harmonix and Bungie. The team has contributed to massive critical and commercial successes, such as the BiosShock games, Rock Band, Guitar Hero and the Halo series.
“Curve Digital has been monumental in bringing The Flame in the Flood to PlayStation 4 and we believe the Complete Edition is a game every PlayStation® fan will want,” said Forrest Dowling, president and lead designer of Molasses Flood. “Not only will players get to experience the award-winning gameplay, art and story of the original, but the additional content and gameplay tweaks very much make this the definitive version.”
