Heavy Rain – The Taxidermist release date and price

Submitted by on Monday, 22 March 2010One Comment

It has been revealed via the US and EU blogs that Heavy Rain Chronicle: Episode 1 – The Taxidermist will be released on the PS Store in all regions on April 1st, and will cost $4.99/€3.99/£3.19.

Up until now, this first piece of DLC for Heavy Rain has only been available to American users who pre-ordered the game, or European users who bought the Special Edition, so it’s great to know that soon everyone will be able to get their hands on it.

We looked at The Taxidermist a couple of weeks ago as part of our Special Edition Unboxed feature. For those of you who don’t know, this episode stars Madison Paige, in a prequel to the events of the main game. She investigates the house of (surprise, surprise) a taxidermist, who is suspected of being the Origami Killer. It’s brilliantly paced, and should certainly get your heart racing.

It should take you about fifteen minutes to complete in your first play through, but closer to an hour altogether if you try for all endings. Therefore, the price isn’t an incredible deal, but equally, it’s not exactly expensive.

If you liked the full game then the chances are you’ll like The Taxidermist, and for Heavy Rain fans, this should be a definite download.
