Abzu, the underwater adventure game revealed at last year’s E3 expo, has finally gotten a proper unveiling this week.
The game is the brainchild of former art director on thatgamecompany’s Journey, Matt Nava. Now, we’ve gotten a full preview via Game Informer.
We’ve compiled the pertinent bits of information in their preview:
- Players can press a button to assemble and swim with schools of fish… or even ride larger, more solitary animals like this sea turtle – if they trust you.
- The game contains tens of thousands of fish of all kinds and through different eras, with possibly thousands onscreen at the same time. They have their own routines and exist in the game’s food chain – which the player can have a hand in.
- Drones can be revived in order to mine mineral pools in the environment… or be eaten by the sharks.
- As you explore deeper into the game you’ll uncover different environments with their own puzzles.
There’s even a first look at gameplay for the game, via Gamespot:
