PS5 Games Can Soon Solve The Mystery Around Marissa Marcel In Immortality


The PS5 release date for Immortality is now set so more gamers can interact with another movie with Immortality

It may have taken a little bit, but those gamers only playing games on the PS5 will soon get to experience what Immortality has to offer up out there. It is a title that Half Mermaid has out there on the Xbox Series X|S and PC for a good while now, but the other big console had to wait a bit. More than a year for those who do not remember when we had the original reveal to look at. Nonetheless, Immortality will be dropping on the PS5 on January 23rd to let us solve another mystery and with a lot of live action to experience it all along with. Very neat!

Since it has been a while since the announcement for Immortality, this is a title that is an interactive movie more than a traditional game. We have had some solid titles like this come out there in the past, so do not write it off yet. This one takes us through a cinematic trilogy where we get to solve the mystery behind the acclaimed actress in each of them. Along with going behind the scenes of the film shoots to find other clues and using the ‘match cut’ mechanic to try to piece more of the footage together. A solid little twist instead of Immortality just opting to go with the usual QTE or button press mechanics that other titles go with.

Immortality — PS5 Announcement

Half Mermaid is excited to announce that their acclaimed and award-winning interactive cinematic trilogy Immortality is coming to PlayStation 5 on January 23rd.

The PlayStation 5 edition of Immortality restores all three of Marissa Marcel’s lost movies and their hours of footage, with new haptic and controller speaker features to bring to life the game’s virtual moviola. For true cinephiles, the game includes a Platinum Trophy.

An Interactive Movie Trilogy

Marissa Marcel was a film star. She made three movies. But none of the movies were ever released. And Marissa Marcel disappeared. An interactive trilogy from Sam Barlow, creator of Her Story.

Immortality is Sam Barlow’s first return to the horror genre since Silent Hill: Shattered Memories in 2009. In this game, players get to explore a treasure trove of newly discovered footage from the three lost movies of Marissa Marcel. By using a magical new mechanic – the ability to ‘match cut’ from a visual at any point in a piece of footage – players navigate via cinematic language to dig up the secrets beneath the surface.

Written with Allan Scott (Don’t Look Now, Queen’s Gambit), Amelia Gray (Mr. Robot, Maniac), and Barry Gifford (Wild at Heart, Lost Highway), Immortality is a boldly ambitious attempt to deconstruct cinema whilst riffing on the mechanics of Pokémon Snap. Barlow’s goal has been to create a game as messy and personal, as wild and unconstrained as his favorite movies and books.

What happened to Marissa Marcel?

I, for one, know I missed out on what Immortality had to offer us all out there due to the limited release that we got. This one will be added in for the other ‘cozy gaming’ I do. However, this does look like there will be more interaction and attention required to help piece it all together in the end. Unless some of these match cuts are paired up easily so it would be hard to not be able to follow the story. I mean, there are only so many paths that Immortality can go down with everything being filmed and set in stone before we even load the game. Not terrible at all since the story has to be the best selling point of all of this.

Did you have to wait for Immortality until this new release or did you give it a go a few years ago now? Is there more to the gameplay than just the story or will it be only that with something engaging to watch being the biggest highlight? Are my choices for ‘cozy games’ a little weird or does it always come back to what you can just kick back and enjoy? Take to the comments to let us all know your thoughts on this and then discuss. We will share more for Immortality if we can, and all you have to do is keep on coming back to see and hear it all. You should not be disappointed at all.
