Solar Ash is the next title from Heart Machine, the creators of Hyper Light Drifter. The publisher Annapurna Interactive has now announced that the game will be released on October 26th of this year. Solar Ash will be available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC on the Epic Games Store on this date.
In Solar Ash, players take control of Rei, a Voidrunner who looks a bit like a 3D version of the protagonist from Hyper Light Drifters. Rei goes on a journey through a colorful, rather nicely designed world as she tries to save her planet from the Ultravoid.
For this she has an immense speed, agility, and other useful tools at her disposal. For example, the protagonist can surf on clouds and a grappling hook is also part of her arsenal.
Of course, Combat is again a big aspect of the new Heart Machine game. The further you advance in the title and the more you explore the world, the more dangerous your adversaries become. The greatest threat are the creatures within the Ultravoid, who hold the key to saving your home.
Heart Machine’s previous project, Hyper Light Drifter, is hugely popular with numerous gamers. We also found a few words of praise for the title in our test. So, with Solar Ash, we can probably look forward to another pretty fun video game experience.
