Acclaimed PC indie title Gone Home will launch for PS4 and Xbox One on January 12, The Fullbright Company has announced.

Gone Home sees players arriving home after a year abroad, but the house is unexpectedly empty and something isn’t right. Where is everyone and what’s happened? Players will have to explore the house and inspect every detail of a seemingly normal house to discover the story of the people who live there.

Released for PC in 2013, a console version was due to follow in 2014 via Majesco’s indie publishing label Midnight City. However, when Majesco ran into trouble the port was canned.

Thankfully PS4 and Xbox One gamers will soon be able to experience the game, just as writer and designer Steve Gaynor originally intended.

“Let me just say how excited we are to put the game in front of a whole new audience of players,” said Gaynor, “Ever since Gone Home came out we’ve wanted to be able to bring it to people who maybe aren’t PC gamers, or don’t have a good enough computer, or who just want to play in their living room, maybe to share the experience with a friend or loved one from the comfort of their couch.

“Our goal wasn’t to add or change things, but just to bring the game that players know & love onto consoles in the best possible form we could. We’re really excited for you all to get your hands on it!

See you in January.”
