505 Games and developer Giant Squid have announced the release date for Abzu.
The dreamy, underwater exploration-focused game will launch for both PC and PlayStation on August 2nd. Featured above, a new trailer for the game was also revealed during this year’s E3 convention.
You can find a brief synopsis for the game below, via 505 Games:
Abzu is an epic descent into the depths of the sea, where players will explore beautifully rendered ocean environments with fluid swimming controls. The experience draws inspiration from the deep innate narrative that we all carry within our subconscious: the story of ABZÛ is a universal myth that resonates across cultures. The name references a concept from the oldest mythologies; it is the combination of the two ancient words “AB,” meaning ocean, and “ZÛ,” meaning to know. Abzu is the ocean of wisdom.
