It's also leaving Google Stadia where it lived as an exclusive updated version of the already brilliant OG release for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Come mid February, however, Journey to the Savage Planet: Employee of the Month Edition will land on both PS5 and Xbox Series X|S sporting new visual upgrades and options as well as collected downloadable content.
Check out the original Google Stadia trailer for the Employee of the Month Edition below.
That’s right, Valued Employee, your journey to ARY-26 as part of the Pioneer Program is now even better (improving on perfection has been hard!) with juicy DLC, new ads, bonus chats with Martin Tweed and an enhanced photo mode! Even better, the game is now fully optimized for new consoles AND features a Performance vs. Graphics option. Honestly, you barely deserve it, but you’re welcome. We’ll give you a moment to collect yourself and digest that amazing news.
Digested? Good. Experience planets ARY-26 and DLC-1 with support for up to 4K (native or upscale) on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. And if you previously bought the game, you get the upgrade for free! What a time to be alive!
As you might already know, Kindred Aerospace is responsible for determining the viability of human life on planet ARY-26. Data suggests the planet’s atmosphere may have hallucinogenic properties, but as you know, we have a strong anti-drug policy. Learn about the planet’s undiscovered flora and fauna and document the bizarre life forms our researchers have scientifically classified as “icky.” Conduct research with the standard tools of the trade: laser pistols, bombs, acid, and other explosives or requisition ARY-26’s resources to create tools using 3D printing technology. Just remember that your benefits don’t include health insurance. You die, it’s your fault, Valued Employee.
“We’ve been through an acquisition, we’ve been made redundant, we’ve formed a new company, and reacquired our IP, but some way, somehow, the Employee of the Month Edition of our wacky game is finally coming to new consoles,” said Alex Hutchinson, Creative Director, Raccoon Logic, weeping only a little. “Thanks to everyone who supported us, especially you, Value Employee. You’re my favorite, whatever your name is.”
The updated version of the game releases on February 14 and will be a free upgrade to anyone who already owned it on a previous-gen machine. New buyers will find the game for less than $60 AUD.
