Sony’s recently concluded State of Play event brought plenty of news, but one of the more intriguing reveals has to be Away: The Survival Series.
Playing as a Sugar Glider possum, your only aim is to survive the world while natural disasters loom (flaming tornadoes, anyone?). Developers Breaking Walls was inspired by nature documentaries, and the way the game is positioned seems to suggest as much.
Players can zip around the world using the possum’s elastic skin to glide through forests, caverns, and swamps, all looking breathtakingly gorgeous.
Your adorable possum can also run quickly and dodge, evading the many predators that await. That includes some nasty looking scorpions and spiders, and the much larger creatures like deer that can easily crush you.
Away: The Survival Series will also feature music by Mike Raznick, who has worked on awesome nature documentaries like Life and Planet Earth II.
No release date has been announced for the game just yet, but hopefully, a 2019 release is still possible.
The State of Play event featured plenty of other news, including more details on the MediEvil remake, a new Predator multiplayer title, a new PS4 console, the Iceborne expansion for Monster Hunter World, and of course, the big one, Final Fantasy VII Remake.
Trophy hunter and dedicated completionist, love to talk all things games!
