Journey to the Savage Planet downloadable expansion “Hot Garbage” will launch for Xbox One and PC on April 15 for $7.99, and for PlayStation 4 “soon,” publisher 505 Games and developer Typhoon Studios announced on the latest episode of Inside Xbox.
Here is an overview of the expansion, via 505 Games:
Journey to the Savage Planet’s “Hot Garbage” expansion rockets players to a new alien planet DL-C1 and tasks players with investigating reports of strange spikes in pollutants at Kindred Aerospace’s (voted 4th Best in Space) new interstellar waterfront resort. After discovering robotic representatives from Vyper Corp. (voted 2nd Best in Space) are using Kindred’s resort as a toxic waste dump, players will explore their way through more alien goo and report their findings back to corporate headquarters. Using the Kindred scanner to report their discoveries, players will unlock new upgrades to gear and abilities including lead boots for adventuring underwater, a specialized Kindred suit for traversing toxic areas, an unlimited stamina ability for endless sprinting and the power of flight (well, sort of).
Doubling down on its cast of sarcastic robotic intelligence, the “Hot Garbage” expansion in Journey to the Savage Planet introduces Kronus, a trash talking piece of Vyper Corp. property with a single mission to berate players throughout their adventure. The new area of this weird and wonderful world also brings new flora and fauna, including a goofy variation of the bird-like Puffer and a fleet of ‘harmless’ Vyper Corp. cleaning and flying security bots. After a long day of dumpster diving, return to the Javelin habitat to view a selection of new commercials for the galaxy’s hottest products and services the future has to offer.
Journey to the Savage Planet is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via the Epic Games Store.
