Back in the woods with hundreds of upgrades. Now available on consoles!

The original Someday You’ll Return (released in 2021) is a critically acclaimed psychological horror game developed by CBE Software. With Someday You’ll Return: Director’s Cut, the game has been significantly improved and expanded, and is now available on both PlayStation 4 and 5, as well as for PC.

Someday You’ll Return is a story-driven game about the search for Stela, a young daughter lost in the surreal forests of South Moravia. Players take on the role of Stela’s father Daniel who is forced to return to the forest which he’s vowed to stay away from. The game deals with the concepts of fear, lies, and fatherhood, as well as coming to terms with one’s past. There are numerous elements of fantasy and horror involved, where it’s not always clear what’s real and what isn’t, or who the actual monster truly is.

In Someday You’ll Return: Director’s Cut, players must use their wits, a map, and local tourist signs to explore a landscape that is both beautiful and treacherous. The world is full of old memories, abandoned camps, steep hills, gloomy swamps, and collapsed bunkers. It is within these magical forests, inspired by the South Moravian landscape, where stories, riddles, and hidden dangers await.

The game also offers extensive crafting, allowing you to edit, disassemble, and craft new artifacts out of items you collect along your travels in order to advance the story. Included as well are the ancient arts of herbalism and alchemy. This enables players to craft mystical potions that will help them solve difficult puzzles and eventually lead them to uncovering the truth about Stela.

“Someday You’ll Return: Director’s Cut is a compendium of more than two years of intensive work on a title that Lukáš Medek and I are very proud of. Although the original intention was only to port the game to consoles, to complete proper support for game controllers and to localize the game into more languages, thanks to the cooperation with Bohemia Interactive, Director’s Cut now includes both a lot of new content and features, as well as adjustments to gameplay and overall better smoothness as you progress through the game. In addition to new features, the game includes over a thousand fixes and improvements that make the game an incomparably better experience. I firmly believe that players will appreciate the effort and plunge into exploring the secrets of the dark story of the search for their missing daughter,” says Jan Kavan from CBE Software, the main creator of the game.
