Season: A letter to the future Gameplay
Meg Hutchinson, Narrative Designer for Season at Scavengers Studio gave more details about Season: A letter to the future in the PlayStation Blog: “Your camera can capture anything you see. Your microphone can capture and playback anything you hear, through directional sound recording. This action also prompts moments of reflection and inquiry as you understand your surroundings, sparking thoughts and investigation from Estelle. Use these recordings of the present to unlock answers for the future.”
To enhance the experience of Estelle’s exploration, Season will be making full use of the Dualsense controller for the PS5. “With the PlayStation 5 DualSense controller, you will feel the terrain under your tires, thanks to the controller’s haptics. When you’re cycling, you feel resistance in the controller’s adaptive triggers when pedalling up steep hills, and then enjoy a relaxing coast downhill. You won’t have to stick to the main road: cycling off the beaten path will lead you to hidden places and new discoveries,” Hutchinson said.
Season: A letter to the future will be available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC on Steam this Fall 2022.
