During PlayStation’s State of Play broadcast, Annapurna Interactive and Heart Machine revealed new narrated gameplay for Solar Ash.

Releasing for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, as well as on PC via the Epic Game Store, Solar Ash is a 3D third-person action platformer filled with sunken cities, water shelves, dangerous lava zones, and more.

Developed by the folks who brought you Hyper Light Drifter, Solar Ash has you taking on the role of a Voidrunner named Rei who traverses through the biomes in hopes of saving her homeworld from a black hole that swallows entire worlds.

Luckily, you have speed, agility, and other tools to help you cover vast distances as you surf across ashen clouds. You can grapple across gaps and up vertical spaces and use rails to reach “greater heights and secret enclaves.”

As you progress, you’ll encounter larger and more dangerous creatures, which will escalate in challenge and scale the more you explore.

Eventually, you will come upon the largest creatures in the Ultravoid which hold the key to progressing your quest and saving the world.

Solar Ash will release later this year.
