As for the North American release, it'll be hitting the aforementioned platforms on September 29th.

The Persistence offers a brutal take on survival-horror that integrates an innovative rogue-like design into the genre and players are tasked with surviving aboard a doomed deep space colony starship in the year 2521. Said ship is overrun with horrific and murderous aberrations that make their presence known as players explore, evade and fight their way through the depths of an ever-changing labyrinth to bring the ship back to Earth.

"We’re excited about bringing the game to physical formats in partnership with Perp Games," said Graeme Ankers, MD and Co-founder of Firesprite Games. "The Persistence is a totally unique survival-horror experience and we’re looking forward to seeing it hit retail shelves."
