A new 8-minute long Kena Bridge of Spirits gameplay video has surfaced online ahead of the game's launch this August.
Glad to see Insomniac is gonna have competition in the pixar animation esc department.
It’s a beautiful game. Hopefully it runs a 60fps on PS5.
I can only assume there will be a performance mode.
Heard it's short, but getting it regardless
“Heard it's short, but getting it regardless” It’s also $40 which is great,
Pretty sure it's running 60 in that video but seems to have a few skipped frames. I'd have to look again. Could just be my phone making it look smoother than it is
Visually speaking, this is one of my most anticipated games. I do think, however, that the animation blending could use some more polish. But I've just come off beating Rift Apart, which has such wonderful blending with classic use of stretch and squash that it may have spoiled me.
“Pretty sure it's running 60 in that video but seems to have a few skipped frames. I'd have to look again. Could just be my phone making it look smoother than it is“ That’s because it’s 4K 60fps PC footage. Says it right in the title.
Hopefully its a great game regardless of frame rate or resolution.
Man..i would love for Jak and Sly Cooper getting the Pixar Animation quality...:-(
Hey man, maybe Sony will acquire Bluepoint and have them remake all the classics!
Yes please! While I was playing Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart all I could think was, "I wish they would do this with Jak and Daxter" maybe even let Insomniac have a try at making it.
It looks great, though I'm not sold on the character animations. A very small concern, but worth mentioning. That is clearly not the focus of the game at all but as I've said, worth mentioning.
Right, not a deal breaker but I felt the jogging animation was rigid and tunnel vision like a Soldier. But the swimming animation seamed natural. Other than that it looks like a cool puzzle adventure.
If you are talking about Rachet & Clank Rift Apart sorry but Kena cannot compete. You don't see worlds instantly loading like R&C
The gameplay looks pretty stiff. I’m worried this might be an all style no substance game.
After the reveal trailer, the more they show, the more “only good” it seems. If the game is not great, I hope they make better design choices next, because visual quality they surely nail.
Yeah, hate to say it but it does look a bit boring. Hopefully there's more action and not just basically linear walking finding those cute little things and simple puzzles and couple of jumps.
I was worried about it too. The studios history is in animation not games so I'm sure they have lots to learn in that regard but I hope they find enough success to continue with another game. And with how much press and only $40 I'm confident it will sell well, I just hope peoples expectations don't backlash.
I love that music.
oh my god, it has an elevator. I thought we would never see elevators because of PS5 speed but I am glad we can have few games with elevators :) This game slightly reminds me about Okami, how you can restore vegetation etc.
An elevator?? Xbox port confirmed! /S
hehehe it could be part of Halo universe /s
Well Halo Infinite had that elevator ride too. I guess that's the connection! Lol
@solideagle with Craig as exclusive NPC
This is also a cross-gen game. It's coming to PS4 as well. This is not a designed from the ground up next gen game.
Yeah, in fact this started out as a PS4 only game. Sony asked these guys to make it for PS5 as well.
Looks really good. Little shit like the jiggle on the bow after a shot makes a big difference.
Ohh yes baby thats gorgeous gameplay right there
more gameplay than the whole of MS E3 show
Feels a little janky. Looks pretty though.
Looks very beautiful and spiritual. Can't wait to play it.
it looks great but...boring
Been waiting for this. Playing it ASAP as the Diablo II game will be out shortly after. I definitely will be on that game when it drops. How I miss those days
Another hit for the summer.
Great, i want it. Now.
Ehh, this looks downgraded from the original reveal.... still excited though.
Starting to look like an insomniac competitor, Sony will be probably looking at sales on this before buying these guys
Certainly looks pretty, but I can't comment past that. We'll see.
Day 1 buy on PS5.
I can't tell if the game is open world or not. It seems there are closed paths for the,most part.
