If you’ve played Detroit: Become Human or Heavy Rain, you’ll know what studio Quantic Dream is all about. The French developer, led by David Cage, is all about interactive dramas and interweaving stories, and it’s been that way since the start. Fahrenheit, or Indigo Prophecy as it’s known in the USA, was its big break in 2005, and this year marks the murder mystery’s 15th anniversary.
To celebrate the milestone, Quantic Dream has announced a partnership with Meridiem Games to produce a special physical edition of the game for PlayStation 4. Available in Europe and Australia, the 15th Anniversary Edition of Fahrenheit includes a fancy case and sleeve, set of stickers, artbook, and a thank you letter from the developer. The package will be available to buy in late November for £24.99 / €29.99.
There’s no word on a North American release, although it is worth noting the game is available via PlayStation Store.

Having grown up alongside PlayStation, Stephen has developed a wide knowledge of video games, from AAA blockbusters to the smallest indie gems. He also has the Platinum for The Witness, so there’s that.
Never actually played it. Might have a look and see if its my kind of thing!
I do rather enjoy murder mysteries, and also enjoyed Heavy Rain. If Fahrenheit is any good, then I’ll likely get this.
I got to that part where you have to run through a partioned office and avoid giant insects and gave up.
@Daleaf It’s just a re-release of the PS4 port. I think it’s upscaled to HD but that’s about it.
Of course they’re not getting Fahrenheit over their in the States. That’s because Fahrenheit had the name changed to Indigo Prophecy over there to try and create more sales in the same vain as Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, Northern Lights and The Madness of King George III
@Quintumply well I didn’t even know there was a ps4 port out already haha, but will still be picking it up got a nice sleeve book and for 25 can’t really go wrong such a good game.
Hum, I played all of the Quantic Dream games on Plus and enjoyed them. This looks kinda rough though.
It’s a disgrace this isn’t being upgraded for free for the people with the original PS2 disc! A disgrace I say!
Loved Beyond 2 Souls, Heavy Rain was Ok, couldn’t get in to Detroit. Never played this but I heard it’s considered a bit of a classic. Hopefully it comes to PS Now at some point, QD seem open to these games released on subs.
I played it on pc years ago, it’s a good game although toward the end the story become full weird.
@lacerz The original Harry Potter title was Philosopher’s Stone. That’s the original English Publication name. Sorcerer’s Stone is an American change. The film release also stuck to the book’s original title here too
I was teasing…I’m familiar with the Harry Potter Europe/North America name changes. I actually didn’t start reading the books until Order of the Phoenix. I was in a judge’s chambers for a case I was working when his Amazon order arrived. I laughed at him (NOTE: DO NOT LAUGH AT JUDGES) and he asked if I had read any of the books. I told him no, but I had seen the first two movies and wasn’t impressed. He told me to read the books…so I did. Loved them. Luckily, the movies got better as well.
@pip_muzz Fahrenheit did get a PC release, however it was either unrated or actually got an AO rating due to having sex scenes and full-frontal nudity (think of the children!). I managed to buy it off of a service called DIrect2Drive way back when.
Later, Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy Remastered was released on PC – still completely uncensored – and received an M rating. How times change.
Omikron, in Europe also had full-front nudity, but the texture was changed in the North American release. The internet solved the problem by simply providing the uncensored texture and instructions on where to copy/paste said texture to restore the game to it’s original European version.
I wanted to like this but man, did I end up hating it once every level turned into Simon Says. Heavy Rain and Beyond Two Souls were much much better.
