Solar Ash will plunge us into a world created in 3D in which the action, the adventure, and the setting itself will intermingle in the same experience.
An adventure that does not entirely break with its previous success: Solar Ash will share the universe with Hyper Light Drifter, making it even more enjoyable.
The Solar Ash Kingdom was unveiled a year ago as the new job for Heat Machine, responsible for the challenging and highly praised Hyper Light Drifter. The Californian studio, together with the Annapurna Interactive label, stayed a little while in the spotlight of the presentation of PS5 games to show how the project is going.
Where will the game be available?
The title has been changed to Solar Ash to dry, and now it will be published on PlayStation 5, PS4, Epic Games Store, and Steam on a date to be confirmed next year.
The new trailer then hints at how this colorful action-adventure will play out and again reminds of HLD-style, but in a 3D world, in a fusion reminiscent of other indie beauties Journey, Rime, or No Man’s Sky.
Details about the game
The transition from 2D to 3D does not leave behind the fast combat or “the charming characters and encounters with huge enemies,” according to the study.
The team has worked to deliver a game that is impactful to players. As they have explained, the objective is to tell a story that involves the world and the characters using a surreal style. They want to reach the heights that their previous game has set.
The studio has regards for all the fans because of the years of waiting since the 2016 release of Hyper Light Drifter. They also hope that the title will surprise them as it did then with its debut video game.
