Tchia Releases in March, Day One on PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium
The adventure game gets an official release date and is a bonus for PlayStation Plus subscribers.
Tchia will launch on March 21 for the PlayStation 5, PS4 and PC through the Epic Games Store. It will also be playable at release for PlayStation Plus members subscribed to the Extra and Premium tiers, Sony announced during its “State of Play” streaming event on Thursday. Inspired by the people and culture of New Caledonia, Tchia is an adventure game from the independent studio Awaceb about a young girl trying to save her father and the people of the island.
The game will cost $29.99 but currently has a pre-order and first week discount of 10 percent off.
Awaceb also announced an Oléti Edition of the game. This version comes with several extra cosmetic items in the “Kepler Customization Pack” like outfits, accessories and boat customization options. These cosmetics are based on other games from its publisher Kepler Interactive, like Sifu, Scorn and Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn. This special edition will cost $34.99 but also currently has a 10 percent off discount. Oléti translates to “thank you” in Drehu, one of the island’s indigenous languages in New Caledonia that’s also featured in the game.
The upper tiers of Sony’s services with a PlayStation Plus Extra subscription costs $99.99 for 12 months while a Premium subscription costs $119.99 for 12 months. Both subscription tiers include monthly free games and a rotating, large catalog of downloadable titles. PS Plus Premium also includes retro games from the PS1, PS2 and PlayStation Portable eras and cloud streaming of PS3 games. The service launched last June and revamped PlayStation’s existing subscription program into three tiers for PS5 and PS4.
Tchia is one of the few games that will be playable at launch on the upper tiers of PlayStation Plus, unlike Xbox Game Pass that sees a lot more day one titles on that service. Stray, the cat-themed adventure game from BlueTwelve Studio, also released day one for PS Plus Extra and Premium in July 2022 on PS5 and PS4.
