Episode Five Coming After Seven Long Years
Seven years ago, Cardboard Computer released the first episode of Kentucky Route Zero. This month, the fifth and final episode is actually here, bringing a long weird saga to a proper close. Plus, we’re getting a TV Edition for consoles, one that bundles all five episodes into a single package. Meanwhile, PC players can just string the whole crazy story together in a season pass.
If you don’t know anything about Kentucky Route Zero, it’s one of those games you’re supposed to approach pretty much blindfolded. Frustrating, I know! Suffice to say that there is a spooky highway involved, one that runs underneath Kentucky. Yes, this is information you could easily glean from the title. No, you aren’t getting any more from me at this point in time.
Although I will say that the trailer embedded below is deliciously evocative, full of atmosphere and haunting imagery. It looks incredibly cool, in other words. I have somehow never played this game, but the impending TV Edition will be the perfect opportunity to remedy this problem. Kentucky Route Zero Episode Five is coming to PC, PS4, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch on January 28th, 2020.
