The former Xbox console exclusive Somerville is now available on PlayStation consoles. It was released on August 31, 2023 for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. The game was developed by Jumpship, a studio co-founded by Dino Patti, who previously worked on indie hits like Limbo and Inside. Somerville is a short third-person adventure in which players explore a city during an alien invasion. It received positive reviews from critics, and was highly regarded on Xbox Game Pass. The PlayStation ports were optimized for the PS5, utilizing the DualSense controller’s adaptive triggers.
Here are some other former Xbox console exclusives that have been released on PlayStation consoles in recent months:
- High on Life (July 2023)
- Naraka: Bladepoint (July 2023)
- Scorn (October 2023)
It is worth noting that not all Xbox console exclusives will be released on PlayStation consoles. Microsoft has a number of high-profile exclusives in development, such as Starfield and Redfall, that are not expected to be released on PlayStation. However, the release of Somerville and other former Xbox exclusives on PlayStation is a sign that Microsoft is becoming more open to cross-platform releases. This is good news for gamers, as it gives them more options to play the games they want.
