A third-person adventure game, Spirit of the North with a Northern spirit (and touch).
„Spirit of the North is a single-player, third-person adventure game inspired by the breathtaking and mysterious landscapes of Iceland. The story takes root from various pieces of Nordic folklore. The game is unique in that it purposefully has no dialogue or narrative. Players must breathe in their surroundings to solve various puzzles and speculate the meaning of a lost ancient civilization. Play as an ordinary red fox who’s story becomes entwined with the guardian of the Northern Lights, a female spirit fox. As you journey over the mountains and under red-stained skies, you’ll discover more about your companion and a land left in ruin.
Awaken: Begin a quiet journey of discovery and companionship and awaken the slumbering Spirit of the North.
Journey: With the help of your new companion, shed light on the ruins of the past and overcome obstacles.
Discover: Traverse tundra, glaciers, and mountainsides as you follow a foreboding scarlet trail that paints the sky,” Spirit of the North‘s website reads.
Infuse Studio, the developer of Spirit of the North, announced on Twitter that the game will be available from November 1 on the PlayStation Store. Before you’d skip the game over the exclusivity, we’ll take a few quotes from the website’s FAQ section: „Spirit of the North will be launching on PS4 first then coming to PC, Xbox and Switch in the future. […] At launch, the game will only be available on the Playstation Store, but possibly in the future[, a physical version will also be available]. We will be releasing in North America and Europe to start with. [The game is] about 8 hours [long]. It is a linear story game. Development started in June 2017.”
So, November 1. Here is a trailer:
