The former can be preordered via iam8bit, while the physical PS5 edition can be bought from various retailers via Skybound Games.
Additionally, Annapurna and iam8bit have collaborated for a vinyl soundtrack for The Pathless, featuring Journey and Assassin’s Creed Syndicate composer Austin Wintory’s score. The vinyl includes 2 xLP gatefold jacket, cleansed blue and cursed red vinyl, album art by Elaine Lee, mastering by Townsend Mastering, and can currently be preordered from iam8bit.
IGN recently went hands-on with a PC build of The Pathless and came away impressed by its mix of Journey, Breath of the Wild, and some new movement and combat ideas. We also learned a bit about how The Pathless will use PS5’s DualSense controller.
