Despite releasing in 2012 on the PS3, you will need a relatively recent iOS device to play Journey. According to the game’s App Store page, you will need to have either your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch updated to iOS 12.2 or later in order to play the game. It’ll also take up a large slice of your available storage space, weighing in at 1.1 GB. Make sure you have some room available on your iOS 12.2 or above device before diving in.

“Explore the ancient, mysterious world of Journey as you soar above ruins and glide across sands to discover its secrets. Play alone or in the company of a fellow traveler and explore its vast world together.”

Fans of the game’s iconic multiplayer will note that Journey while can be played either alone or online with a friend, players will need Game Center in order to play Journey online.

Journey follows in the wings of Sky: Children of the Light in releasing on iOS in recent days. It appears as though thatgamecompany is happy to release its games on iOS right now. Unfortunately, there is no word on a Journey Android release date as of writing. Despite this, you can pick Journey up on PS3, PS4, PC, and now iOS.
