HEAVY RAIN RELEASES ON PS4 WITH HD UPGRADE BY VIRTUOS

Saigon, Vietnam – 24th March 2016 – Virtuos is proud to announce our first co-development project of 2016: Quantic Dream's title Heavy Rain HD on PS4.

Virtuos fully remastered the 2010 PS3 version of Heavy Rain, providing a second life for the title on PS4.  This process involved upgrading all visuals, taking the pipeline and engine from 32-bit to 64-bit, and adding PS4 exclusive features such as PLAYGO & Share.

This is our second co-developed PS4 title after Final Fantasy X & X-2 HD and another important milestone in Virtuos’ flourishing co-development track record.

Originally released on PlayStation 3 in February of 2010, Heavy Rain was an interactive drama action-adventure game developed by Quantic Dream. It has come to be known as a “film noir thriller”, featuring four diverse protagonists. Each are uniquely involved in the mystery of the Origami Killer, a serial killer who uses extended periods of rainfall to drown his victims.

Heavy Rain HD is the first of 7 new-gen console titles which Virtuos is due to complete in 2016, thus allowing our clients to offer their games to a significantly larger audience.
