EXO One Announced, Gets Trailer
Exbleative has announced EXO ONE, a surreal, exoplanetary exploration game currently in development for PC. A teaser video is available using entirely in-engine footage and displays a mix of gameplay and atmospheric shots. You can watch the new trailer for the game below.
In EXO ONE, the focus is shifted away from traditional sci-fi and space game tropes, such as space combat. Instead, it encourages a relaxed state of flow by using a gravity-based movement system to traverse and explore high sci-fi planets. Pilot a spherical, gravity powered probe through awe-inspiring, enigmatic alien worlds. Watch cloud formations float across barren, lightning wracked fields. Drop beneath the waves of an ocean world. Ride the peaks of mountain tops and slide down alien dunes.
Upon reaching the first planet, players will encounter a surreal alien presence almost defying explanation. Accompanying the gameplay are highly atmospheric visuals, otherworldly audio and a hypnotic, electric guitar and synth-laden soundtrack. EXO ONE is and continues to be inspired by the many discoveries of the Kepler spacecraft, and the mysteries of what may lay out in interstellar space for future explorers.
The game is set to have a number of features, including:
- An array of unique, open worlds to explore, from traditional terrestrial planets to water worlds to gas giants
- Pilot a probe featuring multiple movement modes. Rolling, sliding, gliding/flying, with control over gravity and anti-gravity.
- Use these movement modes to build momentum, slide down dunes and catapult off hilltops.
- Glide through clouds and catch thermals that lift you high into alien atmospheres.
- Drop beneath the waves of boiling oceans under the glow of distant suns.
- Wind down and travel at your own pace. There are no challenges, wars or enemies.
- Listen to the sounds of the planets and contemplate the alien presence that occupies them.
- A minimalist yet mysterious narrative that allows players to form their own conclusions of the story.
