Summer Game Fest has revisited Solar Ash, the next game by Heart Machine, the developer of Hyper Light Drifter. The game arrived later this year, and the short gameplay teaser only increased the excitement for trippy adventures.
Solar Ash starring Ray, a void runner like the Spelunker of the universe. Ray’s hometown is about to be consumed by a giant black hole called the Ultra Void, so she jumps into the void first to find a way to save her planet. Solar Ash is all a high-speed platform, and gameplay consists primarily of Ray skating, flying around the beautiful alien world, and hack-and-slash combat along the way.
During her journey, she defeats Remnant, the giant beast that occupies the Ultra Void. In today’s video, I got a glimpse of a hawk-like remnant and how Ray works on it. Like Wanda and Colossus, players need to board these giant beasts and remain as attached as possible to defeat them.
Unfortunately, we didn’t yet know the exact release date for Solar Ash, but it will be released on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC in the coming months.
