No Matter Studios has announced that its Shadow of the Colossus-inspired game, Praey for the Gods will be coming to Steam Early Access on January 31st. In order to celebrate this announcement, the team has also released a brand new gameplay trailer that you can find below.
Praey for the Gods is described as a brutal journey set on a desolate frozen island, where your only chance of survival is to destroy the very gods you believe in. Gamers will play a lone hero sent to the edge of a dying world to discover the mystery behind a never-ending winter.
“Arriving with only the clothes on your back, you must survive the colossal dangers that you encounter. To restore balance and reclaim the land from the brink, you will be faced with questions that not even a God knows the answer to.”
The Steam Early Access version of the game will feature all the game content the team achieved in its Kickstarter campaign. This basically means that the 5 bosses are done and fully playable, along with cutscenes, open world exploration, minions, puzzles, and all the additional Kickstarter Backer Content.
“It’s a fully playable game that is exactly what you backed us for when we started on this journey. However, we love working on this game and our engine and tools have come leaps and bounds since we started development. This is allowing us to develop faster and better and it feels silly to stop development on the game when we’ve just hit our stride. While Chien is working on getting the game further optimized and certified for PS4/Xbox One, Tim and I will add what additional stretch goal content we can prior to a final launch on consoles. We found this to be a win/win for both PC backers and console backers as PC backers will get the game as well as additional content over time and console backers will have some fresh content and a somewhat spoiler free conclusion to the game.”
