First look at Giant Squid’s Abzu

From the art director of Thatgamecompany’s Journey.

Abzu

Game Informer has gone up with its online preview of Abzu, Giant Squid’s first game announced for PlayStation 4 and PC during Sony’s E3 2014 press conference.

The publication got to go hands-on with the title. Here are their tidbits:

  • Players can press a button to assemble and swim with schools of fish… or even ride larger, more solitary animals like this sea turtle – if they trust you.
  • The game contains tens of thousands of fish of all kinds and through different eras, with possibly thousands onscreen at the same time. They have their own routines and exist in the game’s food chain – which the player can have a hand in.
  • Drones can be revived in order to mine mineral pools in the environment… or be eaten by the sharks.
  • As you explore deeper into the game you’ll uncover different environments with their own puzzles.
