Arise: A Simple Story Release Date Announced

Revealed during Sony’s recent State of Play presentation, the gorgeous looking game Arise: A Simple Story, now has an actual release date to mark down.

Even amongst some big game trailers/reveals (like The Last of Us: Part II release date), the announcement trailer for Arise: A Simple Story really stood out to me. It’s simple, yet engaging graphics paint a stunning picture, combined with the interesting idea of playing through this person’s journey through the afterlife, has me eager to pick it up.

While the trailer told us it’d be hitting sometime this December, this morning, the developers/publisher has announced a more specific date we can put on our calendars. The game will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Epic Games Store on December 3, 2019.

Arise is an emotional journey through the life of two people where memories come alive and time bends to the player’s will. Each chapter represents a specific turning point in a man’s long life filled with relatable moments of joy and sorrow. Arise’s heartwarming love story will have players experience diverse powerful emotions – both the protagonist’s and their own.

Your journey begins, as our protagonist’s life ends, in limbo.  Relive crucial events of his life as you make your way towards the mesmerizing light beckoning from a mountaintop, using your newfound gift of time manipulation to help you overcome many obstacles along the way. 

Will you be picking up Arise this December?
