PS5: Sony’s New Game – What Is It About?

The year 2021 already has a few PS5 aces up its sleeve. These include games like Horizon: Forbidden West, Kena: Bridge of Spirits, Returnal or Stray – what was still missing was a new survival game and that’s what Sony is now introducing.

The upcoming PS5 exclusive game bears the name Abandoned and was announced with a short teaser. It’s supposed to be a hyper-realistic open-world experience. In the game, your task is to find an escape route while defending yourself against enemies, surviving in the wilderness and searching for resources to keep the character Jason alive.

The decision as to whether you fight in certain situations or prefer to hide should also play a major role. On the official PlayStation Blog Blue Box Game Studios Game Director Hasan Kahraman explains that “one wrong move can be the deciding factor in whether or not you survive a battle scenario” – So tactics seem important.

You can get a first impression through the trailer:

Abandoned is supposed to take advantage of the power of the PS5

The upcoming survival horror game could be a real hit with genre fans, and Kahraman is already promising that Abandoned will take advantage of the next-gen console’s power. Abandoned should be with 4K and 60 FPS run and show off realistic character animations captured using motion capture. That too haptische Feedback des DualSense-Controllers and the console’s innovative 3D audio should be used to create an even more immersive experience.

When exactly the game will be released is not yet known. So far, there is only talk of 2021.
