Jett: The Far Shore, the upcoming space exploration game from Canadian developer Superbrothers, looks like it has a shot at being the next great, stylish PlayStation-exclusive indie adventure, and now it also has itself a launch date. During Gamescom a new Jett: The Far Shore trailer was released, which shows off a wider array of landscapes than we’ve seen before, hints at the game’s narrative, and reveals an October release date. You can check out the new trailer for yourself, below.

Steel Assault Delivers its Payload of Explosive Old-School 2D Action This Month

I have to say, this game grows on me a little more every time I see it. Here’s hoping it delivers on its promise. Here are the game’s key features:

  • Embark on an exploratory single-player adventure presented in five captivating acts encompassing monumental moments, laid-back exploration, occasional white-knuckle action, moments of heartfelt companionship, and a helping of existential dread.
  • Soak in a sea of music and 3D sound, with a breathtaking score by Scntfc.
  • Deploy to the surface of a mythic ocean planet: skim up undiscovered coastlines, inspect indigenous flora and fauna, adapt to new perils, and problem-solve tough obstacles using your jett's array of scientific tools.
  • Investigate the source of 'the hymnwave', an interstellar invitation that propelled a people to look beyond their troubled skies and across the sea of stars, for salvation
  • Rendezvous at 'Ground Control' and get to know fellow scouts in relaxed first-person sequences, as the scouts struggle together to “satisfy ‘Jao's directives’” and acquit themselves with honor.
  • Endure hardships, evade pursuers and grapple with massive 'kolos' creatures by out-pacing or out-smarting adversaries and navigating hazards.

Jett: The Far Shore begins its exploration on PC (via the Epic Games Store), PS4, and P55 on October 5. The game will set you back $30, but those who pre-order can grab it at a 20 percent discount.
