A new gameplay clip for Solar Ash has been released by Heart Machine, developers of Hyper Light Drifter, and Annapurna Interactive showing how players will traverse the world. In this clip the main character grinds along a surface up towards a platform where a crystal is hit to light it up. This light attracts the enemy, a giant flying creature, and when it gets close the character uses a grappling tether to hook onto the creature. Once the character is on the bird they glide across it attacking different pylons which causes damage. The whole clip lasts about a minute.
Taking place by a black hole, it’s all about speed and fluidity as you explore the large environments that are slowly being consumed. You play as Ray, a Void Runner, who’s venturing into the anomaly to try and save her home planet. Solar Ash is expected to release later this year for PC, PS4, and PS5.
