Kena: Bridge of Spirits has received new screenshots showing a thundering storm at night. The devs have also shared a character render for Christmas.
Looks amazing. Please be good! This game has had my attention since the reveal.
This and Little Devil Inside which I'm dying to hear more about.
"This screenshot looks unreal at first glance because of how good it looks, and can be easily mistaken for a CGI movie." funny how this was mentioned actually, It was originally operating on the Unity engine but then switched to Unreal engine 4. https://www.gameinformer.co... goes to show that UE4 still has more than enough features and power to power future games.
Unity is catching up but UE is still the higher quality.
@Babadook7 After reading and researching more about the upcoming Unreal engine 5 Unity has a long way to go
I mean the main developers arguable largest work was a amazing Zelda Majora's Mask animation. And they are working together with Sparx. One of the most prolifere animation and VFX studios out there. So quality art is not really going to be a problem. Where they might run into problems is in actually making it fun to play. As this is also their first game.
This game's art style is stunning - looking forward to this one!
Whens it out?
Might be my most anticipated game. The game looks incredible and full of life.
This is looking real good.
Hopefully this game turns out to be as good as it looks and if so Sony really considers adding Ember Labs to the Playstation family.
They don't have enough capital bud. I'm sure Sony would love to be able to cut 7 billion dollar checks as well. But they're not that big of a company.
They wouldn't need 7 billion for this deal bud, just like they didn't need 7 billion to buy Insomniac. Pretty sure a company worth north of 45 billion could work out a deal with a brand new developer.
Been a while since I've got to read something with so much reach, well done ranger👏🤣
Ember Labs have just 31 staff members and you believe they are worth 7 billion? New to gaming by any chance?
LMAO, how misinformed on multiple levels?!
Trying to understand some people is like trying to smell the colour 9.
Woah wayyyyy too early to consider purchasing them. As far as I can tell this is their first game as a new studio. They probably want to be independent before being bought by a company. Also we don't know how good the game will be. Usually a company needs a portfolio of games before they are considered valuable to bigger companies.
"They probably want to be independent before being bought by a company." Or they dont and would like to have the financial backing and support that would come from being in Sony's first party family of studios. "Also we don't know how good the game will be." Hence the, 'Hopefully this game turns out to be as good as it looks' point of my original comment. "Usually a company needs a portfolio of games before they are considered valuable to bigger companies." Not necessarily in every case.
A follow up to my previous comment: Microsft/xbox purchased Compulsion Games after only two games neither of which were very good. 'Contrast' from all the way back in 2013 was a small downloadable puzzle based platforming game that I actually played and enjoyed but it wasn't the kind of game that would prove the company was worth a purchase. Their second game from 2016 'We Happy Few' was well a failure by all accounts metas in the mid sixties and that's it and yet Microsoft still purchased them for some reason so as you can see its like I said not necessarily in every case, if Kena turns out to be great having an acclaimed portfolio isn't a deciding factor.
I'd rather that sony added a different developer, since Sony has plenty of 3rd person action games.
Doesn't hurt to have more if its great.
This and hellblade2 are probably the most impressive looking next gen games so far. This game looks amazing so far and the world looks so creative.
I'm not saying what you are saying is wrong but have we seen actual gameplay of Hellblade yet? I'm not saying if the game won't look amazing, I'm sure it will, but what we seen was actually CGI. But I can't wait for both either.
The in-engine footage looked out of this world, but yah no gameplay footage yet like kena has shown.
I hope it’s good. Playing immortals reminded me of the old Sphinx and mummy games. I’d like to see that brand of platforming adventure games make a comeback with the new technology and new characters.
I f'n loved those games - I think one was called Sphynx and the Shadow of Tset? I remember enjoying torturing the mummy with electricity to solve puzzles lol
Yeah me too. I think it would be great for the next generation to have those. It’s a good family genre. I can’t remember the exact names either. Sphinx and the cursed mummy or something like that.
^ You're spot on - i just looked it up for a nostalgia trip. It was originally called 'Sphinx and the Shadow of Set' when they released the demo (that I got for PS2 via OPM lol) and they changed it during development to 'Sphinx and the Misfortunate Mummy' and then they changed it AGAIN for launch to 'Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy'! As for family game - yup, I played this with my dad and he was gagging for a sequel for years after lol ...I might have to look up a little walk through one sleepless night soon lol
They're called bullshots. let's not get carried away.
Waiting on this, and waiting, and waiting patiently.
Really am looking forward to this game! I hope it holds up! Looks fantastic!
Will it look like that during gameplay?
When is the release date for this game ?
It was delayed from holiday 2020 to Q1 2021, so not long to wait.
Ohh cool thanks. Ive been waiting for a good ps5 game to buy, hoping it turns out good and something I will like.
Looks amazing, but I wasn't sure if I was looking at cutscenes to further the story or actual gameplay?
What's the holdup Sony? You wanna see this talent develop on Microsoft and Nintendo hardware?
whats wrong with you
Seems to be drawing a lot from Avatar: The Last Airbender with the whole bridge of spirits thing and being passive etc. Which is good!
It also reminds me of Kameo Elements of Power in alot of ways.......Interesting that both names start with a K. https://www.xboxachievement...
