Sword of the Sea is a Stunning New Game From Journey Devs

Giant Squid Games, the studio responsible for Abzu, The Pathless and Journey, has announced a stunning new game titled Sword of the Sea. The surreal reveal trailer transports players to desert sands and vast oceans, sometimes merging the two to create striking imagery reminiscent of the best aspects of Giant Squid’s past games. While no release date was announced, it will be coming to PS5 and PC.

Speaking on a recent PlayStation Blog post, Giant Squid creative director Matt Nava offered some of the first details for Sword of the Sea. Nava describes the game as the studio’s most ambitious work to date, taking place in an abandoned realm where the environment seems to flow like ocean waves. A brand new gameplay mechanic called the Hoversword allows players to glide across the terrain and even pull off airtime tricks (that will surely make Tony Hawk jealous).

Nava talked in a bit more detail about Sword of the Sea and its various gameplay mechanics, stating:

“Sword of the Sea is our most ambitious game to date. Taking place in an abandoned realm where the terrain flows in constant waves, Sword of the Sea features a brand-new movement mechanic: the Hoversword. The Hoversword controls like a snowboard, skateboard, and hoverboard all in one. Build momentum to achieve great speeds and catch big air as you explore skatepark-like ruins, lost in the tides of the Necropolis of the Gods. The Hoversword embodies the feel of snowboarding and skating games, but in an entirely new context of adventure.”

You take control of the Wraith, a resurrected individual who must restore life to the world as you explore submerged ruins and cultures. “Surf through sinking tombs, mysterious shipwrecks, and petrified battlefields – and bring giant shoals of fish and creatures back in the process,” said Nava. “But beware – this land is also home to massive leviathans that will stand in your way.”

Sword of the Sea is currently in development for PS5 and PC. Check out the beautiful reveal trailer below:
