Heart Machine’s upcoming 3D action adventure game Solar Ash received some new gameplay at the Summer Game Fest Kickoff Live show. It sees the protagonist Rei tackling a massive boss, destroying different pylons while the creature is in mid-flight. Check it out below.
The story of Solar Ash sees Rei, a Voidrunner, traveling to the mysterious Ultravoid which is consuming entire planets in its wake. Rei’s purpose is to save her planet but how she’ll accomplish this remains to be seen, especially with how surreal the environments can be. Within the void are all kinds of horrors including the Sentinels, which can be climbed on and navigated around. There’s a major Shadow of the Colossus vibe and the latest trailer only reinforces that further.
Solar Ash is currently in development for PS4, PS5 and PC (via the Epic Games Store). It’s slated for later this year but a release date has yet to be revealed. Stay tuned for more details and updates in the coming months.
