PlayStation 4, PS5, and PC.
Heart Machine, a Hyper Light Drifter creator has finally released Solar Ash sci-fi adventure-adventure Solar Ash. It will go on sale for PlayStation 2 and PC starting October 26th.
Heart Machine announced the latest adventure in 2019. It was originally called Solar Ash Kingdom. The game takes the players on a surreal, vivid, stylised journey to “surreal and vivid world filled with mystery and wild high-speed traversal. Endearing characters and huge enemy encounters.” They play the role of Voidrunner Rei and attempt to rescue their planet from Ultravoid, a giant black hole that swallows whole worlds.
Solar Ash, which trades Hyper Light Drifter’s complex top-down pixels for a fully 3D environment is an action-platformer that lets you play in third person with emphasis on fluidity of movement. You can quickly jump, slide, grind and grapple over huge distances while exploring dangerous lava zones and sunken cities.
Heart Machine explained in February that “as you move on, you will encounter bigger and more bizarre creatures. This is pointing to the more sinister nature of this maw.” These encounters are more difficult and will require you to be better at platforming and timing.
We’re in for an amazing treat if Solar Ash’s exploration platform action inspires the same wonder and amazement as its predecessor. It will launch for PlayStation 4, PS5, PC, and via the Epic Games Store on 26 October.
