Annapurna Interactive and Heart Machine, the team behind the spectacular “Hyper Light Drifter,” has come with a new title, “Solar Ash.” The game will be available for PlayStation 5 and PC via the Epic Game Store.
Solar Ash is a three-dimensional action platform. And according to Alex Preston, creative director, the transition from two to three dimensions was a great challenge for the team, who wanted to create an immense explorable world. It will be done in the role of Rei, an explorer who will try to save her homeland from the Ultra Void, which, like a big black hole, swallows everything. There will also be combat phases in which Rei will face evil creatures: as you progress, these will get larger and deadlier.

Solar Ash Plot
There is a lot yet to come out about the video game and its storyline. It is consuming countless worlds, destroying everything and reducing it to cosmic nothingness. To save one of these unfortunate planets, Rei decides to enter the anomaly to stop it. Inside, however, she does not find only emptiness and darkness waiting for her, but a world full of creatures and entities of rare power. The adventure will therefore not only prove to be more complex than expected, but also particularly engaging from several points of view.
Solar Ash Gameplay
As for the gameplay, the Solar Ash is not an ordinary platformer. But a game where the protagonist shows off the ability to move at extreme speed and leap from obstacle to obstacle with great agility. The fluidity with which all this happens represents a solid element of interest in the game. At the same time, the great variety of environments is striking, each with its characteristics and details.
In Solar Ash, the player traverses the Ultravoid, a ravenous fault in space that engulfs entire worlds. It is a dangerous place, characterized by surreal spaces: a dream with no escape routes. Familiar, even if alien, lush yet grotesque, it alternates moments of tranquility with others of extreme violence.
Players will whiz through high-speed cross-cutting challenges facing incredible gravity and beautiful vistas as they slay gigantic monsters and encounter other lost souls.
As for the fights, Rei does not seem to be equipped with particularly complex attacks. According to the trailer, the character is quite limited to unleash a series of guided shots that do not interrupt his movement.
Finally, from the trailer, it is clear of the possibility how the game contains of both more action moments and other more contemplative moments, from which particularly profound reflections and themes could emerge.
