Here’s what the game is about from the official description.

Tad: The Lost Explorer and the Emerald Tablet is a 2.5D / 3D action-adventure where players will visit iconic and exotic locations (Paris, Veracruz, Chicago and El Cairo) in an epic journey to retrieve the emerald tablet while saving his friends. This time, Tad has found himself in a huge mess. During one of his expeditions, our beloved explorer has unleashed an ancient curse and now some of his friends have fallen under a wicked spell. To save them, and save the world, Tad will have to travel with his long-life friends, solve puzzles, overcome platforming sections and climb buildings to solve the ancient mystery that pursues him.

And if that didn’t tantalise you enough, here are some of the game’s key features.

  • Join Tad in his quest to retrieve the Emerald Tablet. Explore four different locations (Veracruz, Chicago, Paris, El Cairo) with your friends on an epic journey.
  • Immerse in Tad’s world. Traverse platforming sections, climb buildings and even swim among piranhas to solve an ancient mystery. 
  • Find the lost relics and collect brushes. Solve puzzles to discover every hidden treasure in each of the four locations.
  • Enjoy reading Tad’s comic books. Follow the adventures of Tad, Sara, Jeff, and Belzoni in the comic books that you will find along the game.

Tad: The Lost Explorer and the Emerald Tablet will launch for PS5 and PS4 on November 16th. The game will release digitally on the PlayStation Store and the press release also mentions that there will be a physical release on the same date.
