Ubisoft has announced Grow Home, a new “experiential climbing game” in development at its Reflections studio.
The game, due out for PC via Steam on February 4, puts players in the role of BUD, a child-like robot sent on a mission to search the galaxy for a new species of plant that can oxygenate his home world. To do this, he’ll explore a “strange” and open world full of floating islands, caves, and waterfalls, reshaping the world to create a climbable landscape.
Grow Home promises “unique climbing controls and abilities” that challenge the player, and suggests one wrong move could mean a long fall.
Ubisoft further details the game’s two main pillars below:
- Climbing: The world of Grow Home is built for vertical exploration and the unique climbing mechanic brings unprecedented freedom. Players control BUD’s hands independently to grab onto any surface, scaling the giant Star Plant as it grows and expands.
- Exploration: There are no set paths in Grow Home. Players are free to explore the many micro islands and hidden caves in this fun and beautiful open world. Every island encountered is scattered with hidden crystals to power the players’ journey and expand their abilities.
