Jett: The Far Shore Announced for the PlayStation 5
During PlayStation's digital showcase, we got a look at Jett: The Far Shore, an interstellar single-player adventure.
During yesterday’s The Future of Gaming showcase yesterday, Sword and Sorcery co-developer Superbrothers and Pine Scented Software announced Jett: The Far Shore for the PlayStation 5.
This single-player adventure has you play as Mei, a scout that’s deployed to a mysterious ocean planet. The game’s story is told through five acts as you coast over waves, explore parts of the planet, and face creatures along the way.
“There’s a type of videogame I’ve longed for, a traditional enough console action adventure that can reel me in with character, story and concept but that then lets me cut loose, go fast, be clever and soak in rich audio and music,” says Creative Director Craig D. Adams in a press release. “After all these years it’s exciting to be bringing JETT out of the shadows into the light of day, with the help of partners like Playstation and Epic Games.”
Jett: The Far Shore was far from the only game announced yesterday. PlayStation showed off major first-party titles like Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Gran Turismo 7, Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart, and Horizon: Forbidden West. As for third-party developers, we got a look at Resident Evil VIII: Village, Deathloop, and Ghostwire: Tokyo. Additionally, we got our first look at what the PlayStation 5 looks like.
“JETT has everything I look for in a video game – exploration, adventure, a riveting story, a richly drawn world – this along with the fresh tone and startling vision we saw from Superbrothers in Sword & Sworcery,” says Randy Smith, game and production designer. “It’s breathtaking to experience that aesthetic evolved successfully into 3D and a much larger scope. My role was to enrich the open world systemic gameplay using my immersive sim background. I’m very excited for gamers to get their hands on this lovely offering.”
Jett: The Far Shore launches this holiday on the PlayStation 5. If you’re interested, you can watch the game’s announcement trailer below.
