Breaking Walls has just revealed a long video with some of the many wild features of the next Away sugar glider adventure: The Survival Series, and so far, this game looks at a good time. The developers have actually managed to do something as simple as catching a dragonfly in an epic adventure while the sugar glider plane in the air, coming in air pockets to gain more lift and rushing In narrow tunnels in the pursuit of a snack insects.
In real life, sugar gliders are legendary for their skiing capacity, but they are not exactly known to perform aerial maneuvers like hunting planes or, more precisely, Star Fox. However, this does not prevent Away: The Survival Series to take some freedoms concerning the real behavior of animals, and if this preview video is something to do, the risk paid.
First of all, the video shows the mechanisms of gliding and hunting of the game, the lush environments and a narrator who would have just as well emerged from a real documentary about nature. Then he begins to enter in more detail regarding the frame, revealing that Away: The Survival Series takes place on a future land that has been definitely marked by natural disasters and climate change.
Plants, terrain and predators all represent serious danger for your small player character. The narrator is openly wondering how sugar gliders have survived while so many other species perished.
The video then shows the photo mode of the game, which allows you to freeze the action at any time and to apply filters to get the perfect nature photo. Then, it presents the possibility of playing as animals other than sugar gliders, including a black and yellow salamander and a religious mante.
New creatures will appear in the world based on the day-night cycle, which will also change during specific missions. Players will be able to explore different biomes, digging clues on what happened to the planet and fight venomous snakes as a boss.
Away: The Survival Series will be available later this summer on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
