Thankfully, too, it looks like it'll have both cross-save and cross-play across all platforms. What we don't know is release date or business model, but it seems like it's early goings right now.Set on the planet of Tau Ceti IV, Marathon players take the role of Runners (because you know...Marathon).

Tasked with exploring a «lost colony that once inhabited Tau Ceti's surface,» Runners will group up in teams of three (or solo) to loot and extract.Speaking with the PlayStation Blog yesterday after the announcement, while this isn't a direct sequel to the Marathon games of old, there will be parts that «honor» the original according to Game Director Christopher Barrett.Finding the right balance is one of the most fun parts of development!

We have a tremendous amount of respect for the original Marathon games and, from the very start, we’ve wanted to honor that, especially the mythology, story, and themes of the world.
