Journey Is Finally Coming to Steam This Summer

Even more scarves are on the way.

The wild and wonderful Journey from thatgamecompany is coming to a new storefront. Annapurna Interactive announced today that Journey is coming to Steam on June 11, 2020.

Originally a PlayStation 3 exclusive when it launched in 2012, Journey has been ported over the years to PS4, iOS, and Windows. The Steam store listing adds another way to play to the pile, after a year on the Epic Games Store.

Journey is a moody adventure across ruins and wastes where players can search for secrets and forward progress alone or, preferably, with a silent fellow traveler. Each robed figure can walk, slide, and jump around the environment, while also using their scarves to momentarily fly. It's a short game, but a memorable one.

Thatgamecompany, the developer of Journey, has made a number of soothing and fascinating experiences, including the recent Sky: Children of the Light. But Journey has remained a classic for a reason: there's simply not much else like the adventure it crafts, and a good deal of that hinges on its multiplayer experience.

The first time you see another player in Journey is an incredible moment, and over the course of the actual journey, it becomes a partnership. It's cool that even more players will get to experience all the wonderful emotions of skating across sand and seeing scarves swirl around in the air. Also, doing little call-and-response chime conversations with their partner. I wasn't the only one that did that, right?

Hopefully a Steam launch leads to many more players jumping into the servers and making the great trek across the hills and crumbled buildings of Journey. You can wishlist it right now on the Steam store page.
