Ever since its initial announcement last year, Rain has been a prominent part of Sony's innovative game line-up, with its imaginative visuals and original concept, leading ghostly-like characters through the rain in order to find one another. Today, Sony announced a release date and price for the game, and you won't have to wait long.

Rain, developed by the team at PlayStation C.A.M.P., will release on October 1st in the U.S., and a day later in Europe. The game will be available for $14.99.

That's not all. You can pre-order the game on PlayStation Network now, and doing so will net you a very cool bonus. You'll receive a "music montage," which features sound effects from the game, along with a digital soundtrack, an Avatar pack with characters and a dynamic theme for your system.
