Capybara Games’ punishing dungeon-crawler Below is coming to the PlayStation 4 this spring, with an added more accessible “Explore Mode”.
Explore Mode will feature adjustments to survival, death and damage mechanics – gearing the Below experience more towards action-adventure style gameplay rather than the high difficulty level of the original release. Explore Mode will also be coming to PC and Xbox One when the PS4 version launches, and those who still want that challenge can find it in the Survive Mode.
“It was clear that many players were intrigued by the game’s haunting underworld and rich atmosphere, but its difficulty made the game inaccessible to some.” said Kris Piotrowski at Capybara Games. “We hope to see new players to get into Below, and for seasoned players to revisit The Isle and enjoy the game in a whole new way.”
Below is a vast procedural labyrinth, full of secrets, shadows and danger. To celebrate the upcoming PS4 release, composer Jim Guthrie has unveiled Volume III of the official Below soundtrack, available now on Steam and Bandcamp alongside the first two volumes.
Below is currently available on Xbox One and PC, with a PlayStation 4 release scheduled for spring. For more information, head over to the game’s official website.
