Solar Ash is poised to be a fast-paced, smooth-as-silk action platformer from Hyper Light Drifter studio Heart Device, and now theres a trailer to show it.
Heart Machine first showed off Solar Ash in June throughout Sonys huge PlayStation 5 video games occasion, however we didnt get a great appearance at gameplay till todays State of Play livestream. The Solar Ash gameplay trailer features video caught on PS5, and reveals an extensive setting starring Rei, a Voidrunner on a mission to save her planet from a great void that devours worlds. Gameplay is quick and fluid, with a focus on skating over the ashen clouds and leaping between platforms, slicing down opponents along the method.
Hyper Light Drifter was a smash-hit 2D action RPG that came out in 2016, and Solar Ash is a faithful evolution of imaginative director Alx Prestons visual. It transitions the studios hallmark neon-lined, radiant art style into a 3D environment, putting a small-yet-mighty lead character in the center of a big and frightening world.
Solar Ash is heading to PlayStation 4, PS5 and the Epic Games Store later this year. Its released by Annapurna Interactive.
Hyper Light Drifter co-designer Teddy Dief is also dealing with a brand-new project, We are OFK, with their studio at Palmtree Team. We are OFK is a musical interactive series about four friends in their early 20s trying to make it as a band in modern-day Los Angeles, and it has a distinctly more pastel scheme than Hyper Light Drifter– or Solar Ash, for that matter.
