Way of the Samurai 4 PC Beta Starts Next Week

By   /   Nov 13, 2014

Publisher Ghostlight Games has revealed a bit more info for its Way of the Samurai 4 port to Steam, which it announced in September. It’s currently working on the game’s controls.

In a blog post, the company noted that porting something from Playstation 3 to PC isn’t simple, likely due to the PS3’s different architecture. That’s why the new consoles, both Xbox One and Playstation 4, are more structured to facilitate PC development.

So, Way of the Samurai 4 still has some compatibility issues to take care of, before it can be brought over. There is, however, talk of a Beta phase that will start next week.

Ross Brierley mentioned that there was already a sizable interest from the community for the Beta test of Way of the Samurai 4, stating:

Given the number of requests I’ve been receiving, I know that a lot of you are very excited at the prospect of being part of the BETA phase.  So, you’ll no doubt be pleased to hear that in the next week I’ll be inviting a limited number of you into the first phase of the closed BETA.

Those who aren’t selected to participate in the Beta may still receive an invitation later on, as more community members are brought in. Next week, the company will also release footage of the ported version.

Way of the Samurai 4 is a new adventure for localization specialist Ghostlight Games. It’s much more of an open-world action game than its previous efforts.

The company does have experience with bringing over PS3 games to PC. For instance, it has localized the Record of Agarest War series.
