Hyper Light Drifter developer Heart Machine’s gorgeous sci-fi action-adventure Solar Ash finally has a release date and will be heading to PlayStation and PC on 26th October.

Announced back in 2019 under the working title Solar Ash Kingdom, Heart Machine’s latest adventure takes players to a “surreal, vivid and highly stylised world filled with mystery, wild high-speed traversal, endearing characters, and massive enemy encounters” as they, in the role of Voidrunner Rei, attempt to save their home planet from the Ultravoid – a massive black hole that swallows entire worlds.

In more practical terms, Solar Ash (which trades Hyper Light Drifter’s intricate top-down pixel art for a fully 3D world) is a third-person action-platformer with a focus on “fluidity of movement”. Players are able to quickly leap, slide, grind, and grapple across huge distances as they explore the likes of sunken cities, vast water shelves, and dangerous lava zones, battling ever-more fearsome enemies along the way.
