Inscryption console port rated for PS4

Since it launched on PC last year, gamers have been asking for an Inscryption console version. This is looking a lot more likely now following a listing over on the Australian ratings board that clearly points to a PS4 edition of the creepy card game.

There’s no Inscryption console release date given here – the purpose of a ratings board is to analyse a game’s content in order to determine any age restrictions. In this case, Inscryption gets an M rating due to its “supernatural themes, violence and coarse language”.

The game originally launched in October 2021 and immediately shot its way to the top of many GOTY shortlists thanks to its clever blending of genres and some truly surprising meta-level curveballs. If you’re even remotely interested in playing Inscryption, we highly recommend going in blind as not to spoil those delicious twists.

Even without the trickery, there’s an addictive albeit brutal card game at its core. This was recently expanded via the free Kaycee’s mod DLC which has you pit your deck against a roguelike gauntlet, unlocking new cards and challenges while probing further into the game’s mysterious lore.

Inscryption Overview

From the creator of Pony Island and The Hex comes the latest mind melting, self-destructing love letter to video games. Inscryption is an inky black card-based odyssey that blends the deckbuilding roguelike, escape-room style puzzles, and psychological horror into a blood-laced smoothie. Darker still are the secrets inscrybed upon the cards…

In Inscryption you will…

  • Acquire a deck of woodland creature cards by draft, surgery, and self mutilation
  • Unlock the secrets lurking behind the walls of Leshy’s cabin
  • Embark on an unexpected and deeply disturbing odyssey

Although the ratings board listing has only confirmed a PS4 version, we wouldn’t be surprised to see other Inscryption console ports for Xbox systems and the Nintendo Switch. Hopefully we won’t have to wait too long for an announcement from Devolver.
