Sci-fi adventure Exo One comes to PS4 & PS5 this summer
Hi folks! I’m stoked to be able to tell you all that Exo One will be landing on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 this summer. Exo One began five years ago with a relatively simple idea about using gravity as a movement mechanic, and gradually grew into something strange and special, inspired by my love for sci-fi cinema and games that moved me emotionally. I’m super excited to see it find a new audience and reach new technical heights with this PS5 port.
In Exo One you’ll embark on a journey beyond the solar system, discovering everything from terrestrial deserts to dreamy gas giants as the pilot of an alien probe. Glide and roll across the landscape, controlling gravity itself to reach colossal speeds and exhilarating heights.
You’ll ride thermal updrafts into boiling cloud formations, careen down hillsides, and launch off mountain tops, all the time drifting toward the shining blue beam on the horizon.
I designed this game as a sort of meditative focus on traversal. There’s no timer measuring your progress, monsters, or enemies to fight. It’s really about the atmosphere and the blend of speed and stillness, like a flowing roller coaster.
Immersive PS5 Experience
PS5 players with high refresh rate TVs or monitors will have the option to experience the game at its smoothest and most responsive, thanks to the 120fps support we’ve added. We’ve also managed to add some extra features for the DualSense wireless controller, with haptics that reflect the terrain and weather of each planet, creating a more immersive experience than ever before.
There’s wind resistance in the game, which makes flying more challenging. Thanks to the PS5’s haptics, you’ll feel the resistance on the trigger while going into gliding through winds and updrafts.
The terrain you’re traversing will influence the vibrations too—on some types of it your journey will be accompanied with steady pulsations, while others will give a stronger, shakier vibration.
Controller vibrations change depending on your speed. The faster you go, the stronger vibrations you’ll feel.
Thanks so much for checking out Exo One. This game is a real labour of love and means a lot to me, and I think it’ll be right at home on the PlayStation when it launches this summer.
