31 January, 2019 – Indie publisher Digerati is pleased to confirm the twinstick roguelite action RPG Unexplored: Unlocked Edition will launch on PS4 February 19th/20th (NA/EU respectively), with the Xbox One version set to follow that same week on the 22nd.

Developed by Netherlands-based studio Ludomotion, Unexplored first launched on Steam where it was met with wide acclaim. A roguelite that feels like a roguelike, Unexplored is an accessible yet challenging action RPG that has won praise for its groundbreaking ‘cyclic dungeon generation’ technology. This brand-new tech creates procedurally generated levels that feel hand-crafted, making every dungeon run both unique and memorable.

Descend into the depths of the Dungeon of Doom and complete your quest: steal the Amulet of Yendor from the fearsome dragon and make it out alive. Explore dangerous dungeons, forge magical items, solve mysterious puzzles and battle hundreds of foes!

Unexplored: Unlocked Edition includes the main game and its three DLC packs: Mithril Run, Ripley Run, and The Dark Ritual.
