The app will give players their first proper look at the upcoming game.
In a recent tweet, developer Blue Box Games confirmed that “the Realtime Experience patch will be available universally on August 10th.” Access to the app kicks off at 20:00 BST, but according to Comicbook, PS5 owners can pre-load the experience right now.
As for what you can expect from the experience, it’s still not completely clear. Blue Box says that there’ll be an “opening teaser as an introduction” and that players will “get a glimpse to [sic] ‘what you see is what you play,’ along with some announcements to look out for.”
In a prior thread, the developer said that the experience will offer the first dose of both the “high-end graphics” on offer and gameplay.
The studio says that features like this have only been made possible by the PS5’s SSD. While you’ll find the content included within the experience online after the event, the app will provide the best experience.
The arrival of the Realtime Experience comes at the end of a difficult few months for Abandoned. Rumours that the game and its developers were fronts for the next Hideo Kojima project have been swirling since the title’s announcement. Blue Box has consistently denied those rumours, but the extra attention caused plenty of distraction that game director Hasan Kahraman says hurt development. The title also had content leaked over the last few weeks which the developer had to address.
