The Bridge Curse: Road to Salvation from eastasiasoft and Softstar Entertainment is a cinematic horror experience on PlayStation. It’s based on the legend of the haunted bridge at Tunghai University. In fact, it’s a video game based on the movie The Bridge Curse, which tells the aforementioned story in film form. Six college students try to take on the legend of the female ghost that haunts the grounds, thinking they could turn it into some sort of attraction by first filming the whole experience during a live stream.
While everyone involved knows that everything is supposed to be fake – you know, since they set things up themselves – some things start to go terribly wrong and out of script. You’ll be experiencing the same series of events but from the point of view of the different characters in The Bridge Curse: Road to Salvation. You won’t have any control over when you’ll be switching between since that would break the flow of the experience.
Since the game is played from a first-person perspective, that means you’ll control your character with the left analog stick as you look around by moving the camera with the right one. Pressing in on the left analog stick will allow your character to run, while doing this on the right one will make it crouch. Press the X button to interact with NPCs or objects as needed. The X button will also be used when your character needs to hide in a locker or a mobile toilet. Do know that you might be seen going in there, which will certainly be bad news!
You can open up your inventory with the Triangle button, which will open up your mobile phone. While there, you can switch between tabs by pressing the L1 and R1 buttons. You’ll have to do this several times as you play through The Bridge Curse: Road to Salvation since you’ll have to use the items you find to solve puzzles. You might need to locate a missing piece to supply energy to an electrical box so that you can open the door to a building. You could find items for an exorcism and must read the instructions to place each item at the right spot.
As you switch between different characters and relieve each event from a different perspective, you will need to keep an eye out for the female ghost who is out for revenge. There are some plot twists here and there that I won’t spoil, but rest assured that you will need to make good use of any hiding spots you can find so that she doesn’t slash you to death. And maybe, just maybe, you’ll run into other entities that have been corrupted by the ghost’s dark energy.
The game has a full trophy list with a Platinum trophy for you to aim for. The good news is that none of the trophies are really missable since the game offers a chapter select option. On top of that, this is a Cross-Buy release, so your purchase will allow you to download both the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation 5 versions of the game, and each one will have its own separate trophy list. Each list will be split into 2 Bronze trophies, 7 silver trophies, and 9 Gold trophies for you to work on.
What are the objectives you’ll have to complete to get that shiny Platinum into your collection? Along with all of the trophies that will pop along the way as you progress further and further into the story, there’s a trophy for hiding inside of a portable toilet for the first time, two trophies are for dying a specific way, and then there’s one tied to collecting a particular item.

The Bridge Curse: Road to Salvation is a cinematic horror experience based on the movie of the same name, which takes on the legend of the cursed bridge at Tunghai University.

The Bridge Curse: Road to Salvation is available as a Cross-Buy title with a $29.99 price tag, so your purchase will allow you to download both the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 versions of the game at no extra cost, with each one offering its own trophy list for you to work on.
