Video games publisher, Wired Productions and Italian studio, LKA, recently announced that the forthcoming first-person psychological thriller Martha is Dead will launch on PlayStation 5 in 2021 with the previously announced Xbox family of devices and PC versions.
Martha is Dead opens in the depths of the Italian countryside as Allied and Axis forces turn the nation into a pincered playground. On the shores of the lake lies the body of a young woman; Martha drowned and desecrated. Now her twin sister must deal with the fallout from her murder whilst the horror of war draws ever closer.
Announced in August for Xbox family of devices and PC, work has been progressing in tandem for PlayStation consoles, with publisher Wired Productions now able to confirm Martha is Dead will launch on all three platforms in 2021.
“Now players have next-generation consoles in their hands, it’s exciting to watch Martha is Dead take shape on both PlayStation and the Xbox family of devices –The game builds upon developer LKA’s signature style of deep, multi-layered narratives and was always intended to be a multi-platform release that raises expectations of what can be achieved by an indie studio on next-generation hardware and PC.”
