There’s no shortage of high profile AAA blockbuster releases to grab your attention right now, but amidst that barrage of new big games, there are also plenty of relatively smaller titles that might be worth a look. One of those is Scars Above, developed by Mad Head Games and published by Prime Matter. Announced roughly two years ago, the sci-fi action title has launched today for PC and consoles, and to commemorate its release, Prime Matter has released a launch trailer. Check it out below.
In Scars Above, players will step into the shoes of Dr. Kate Ward, who finds herself trapped and isolated on a hostile alien planet brimming with unknown, terrifying threats, from ancient mysteries to nightmarish alien monstrosities. Combining elements of the likes of Returnal, Soulslike games, and more, Scars Above promises a blistering action experience.
In our review of the game, we awarded it a score of 8/10, saying, “There is a lot to like in Scars Above. If you can get past the issues with the character models and animations, there is a really fun, unique sci-fi shooter with an interesting story to experience.” Read the full review through here.
Scars Above is available on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
