Coming off the hit survival horror title Slender: The Arrival, developer Blue Isle Studios have made a name for themselves in immersive first-person experiences, with the studio having revealed its next project for release this summer.

Blue Isle Studios have revealed their next project titled Valley, a first-person adventure game that the studio says is “like no other,” and will release for PS4, Xbox One, and PC in summer 2016.

Valley will embark players on a first-person adventure with the aid of the “L.E.A.F.”, and exoskeleton suit granting players with enhanced speed and agility while also providing other more supernatural powers, such as the “phenomenal ability to manipulate life and death,” and to “give and take life away from any living thing.”

The ability to give (and take away) life will tie in to the game’s “unique death mechanic,” where the more that players die or take away life will directly affect the game world you and make it die as well.

A full description of the title from Blue Isle Studios is below:

“Hidden deep within a remote region of the Rocky Mountains, you find yourself bewildered within a secluded valley. With the power of a recently discovered L.E.A.F. suit (Leap Effortlessly though Air Functionality), run and jump your way through beautiful forests, dangerous ruins and vast environments; all the while utilizing the power to control life and death to uncover the startling secrets of the mysterious valley.”

Specifically, the studio expressed with Valley that “we wanted to do something completely unique that offered players an amazing amount of freedom,” with Blue Isle expressing that for them, Valley is “something totally new and distinct, that we expect will intrigue players.”

Valley will release for PS4, Xbox One, and PC in summer 2016 – in the meantime, you can check out the game’s announcement trailer below:
