For those who have already played Hyper Light Drifter, this name will probably be enough to attract attention. But today we are not here to talk about Hyper Light Drifter but to talk about the new project of its creators, Solar Ash, coming to PS5 in 2021.
If you liked what Heart Machine did with Hyper Light Drifter, it is time for your expectation to rise because the studio has presented its new project, Solar Ash, whose proposal has been possible thanks to the PS5 hardware. It is also worth mentioning that the game will also adapt to the technology of the DualSense.
During the PS5 presentation, Heart Machine revealed Solar Ash, a new title that according to its creator, Alex Preston, comes from an emotionally different place than Hyper Light Drifter. According to the creative, if the aforementioned game was about struggle and despair at the moment in its life, Solar Ash captures reflection and progress.
According to Preston, Solar Ash will put us in front of a crack that devours all worlds and within which there is an ever-changing environment, so it can be the quietest environment at times and the most hostile at others.
“In Solar Ash, the player journeys through the Ultravoid, a ravenous rift in space swallowing worlds. It’s a place of incredible danger and surreal spaces – a dream none can escape. Familiar though alien, lush but grotesque, peaceful at times and supremely violent in others. Our characters must find solace in each other to make it through the spiral of despair they find themselves trapped in,” reads the description of the game on the official PlayStation Blog.
Solar Ash will release on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and PC in 2021.
