New campaign and characters for Mike Bithell’s acclaimed stealth adventure
Hi, Mike Bithell here. It’s been two months since the launch of Volume on PlayStation and, thanks to your overwhelming support of the game, I’m happy to announce an expansion for Volume coming first to PlayStation VR at launch – Volume: Coda
Volume: Coda picks up after the events of the core game. I’ll avoid spoilers here, but you’ll play as a new character, brought in as a last resort by the villains hurt most by Locksley’s revolution. The new campaign features 30 new levels, a new cast of voice actors adding new characters to the story, and a new VR setting as players take on the role of The Troubleshooter.
Volume: Coda is a free expansion to Volume. When the PlayStation VR platform launches next year (nope, they won’t tell me when either ;D), you’ll be able to play the Coda expansion and Volume’s core campaign in VR. You’ll also have access to all the user generated levels and, of course, the curated Staff Picks section where we highlight the best levels designed by the community.
By the time you read this, the PlayStation 4 version of Volume will be patched in all available regions with the Checkpoints Update. The original design of Volume was heavily sided to speedrunners. The Checkpoints Update has added new modes and leaderboards for players seeking pure stealth or simply a more challenging experience. Now the different communities on PlayStation can compete against similar players on their own custom leaderboards.
Where’s Volume for PS Vita? Well, it’s still happening and the game remains Cross-Buy for PS4. We’ve hit some roadblocks, which slowed us down. Rushing out a weak port wasn’t an option, and I’m proud of what the team have managed to squeeze into that awesome little box. Oh, and the Checkpoints Update is also absolutely included in the PS Vita version. We cannot wait for you folks to be able to check it out, and it doesn’t look like it’ll be too much of a wait.
Oh, and one more thing… in celebration of the Checkpoints Update, Volume is currently on sale for PlayStation 4 at 30% off, until 4th November.
