Annapurna Interactive and developer Heart Machine Games have revealed the gameplay for 3D platformer Solar Ash during the PlayStation State of Play.
As previously reported, players must travel through the Ultravoid, a rift in space that is devouring worlds. The lands inside are bizarre and dangerous. “Familiar though alien, lush but grotesque, peaceful at times and supremely violent in others.”
Players must attempt “high-speed traversal challenges with wild gravity and beautiful vistas,” slaying giant monsters, finding other “lost souls,” while avoiding starving remnants.
The new gameplay reveal trailer also features a walkthrough by Creative Director Alex Preston. He describes the gameplay as being focused on speed and fluid movement. Players must venture into the Ultravoid black hole as a Void Runner Ray, in order to save her home.
Players “ski” across the world, along with grappling, and dashing. As players pummel foes as they move, players will meet larger and larger goes; some which will require timing to beat. The giant Sentinels are the starving creatures holding the “key” to Ray’s mission.
