The Vanishing of Ethan Carter has just turned up on PS4

In Europe anyways. He’s still missing in the US

The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is headed to PlayStation 4 on July 15.

A teaser tweet from developer The Astronauts last week hinted that the game was due in “weeks, not months”, and they weren’t wrong – the game turned up on the European PlayStation Store yesterday for a modest £14. 

That said, it’s not yet showing up on the Store for our friends in North America. We’ve reached out Sony and will let you know as/when/if we know more. 

Not played it and wondering if you should pick it up? In our review, we said that “while some will find the pace far too slow for their liking or the crime-scene puzzles too simplistic, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter holds up well.

“Having the story told almost out of sequence makes it even more chilling as you see people slowly turn on each other. The melancholy tale is matched with some wonderful visions to make a game that really sticks in the mind.”
