The news came from the developers at No Matter Studios, a three-man team based in Seattle. They also provided a new trailer to celebrate the news; you can watch it below.
Praey for the Gods was heavily inspired by Team Ico's Shadow of the Colossus, as openly declared by No Matter Studios. The game was initially known as Prey for the Gods, but the name had to be slightly changed due to conflict with Bethesda's existing Prey trademark. No pricing has been announced as of yet.
Praey for the Gods is a boss climbing open world adventure game where you play a lone hero sent to the edge of a dying frozen world to discover the mystery behind a never-ending winter.
Scale Massive Beasts
Overcome impossible odds to climb atop and defeat the massive beasts that are bound to this land.
Climb, Glide, Swim
You can climb on virtually anything you can get your hands on, from ruins and mountains to the massive beasts that inhabit the land. Ascend to the tops of mountains and then glide over the open world to reach previously inaccessible locations. Swim in frigid water to uncover hidden locations that contain secrets and treasure, but don't stay in too long or your swim could become your last.
Explore, Craft, and Survive
You'll arrive on a frozen island with only the clothes on your back -- it's up to you to survive. Make fires, hunt for food, and find the equipment you need to make it through an eternal winter. Nature isn't the only danger, so craft weapons, defeat minions for better gear, and venture into long-forgotten caves to discover their secrets. Triumphing over these trials will prepare you for the impossible odds that wait.
Make Your Path
Praey for the Gods is a non-linear game where you choose who you battle and how. The large beasts can be attempted in any order allowing you to set the course.
Unravel the Mystery
Why won't the winter stop? Why has no one returned? Cryptic paintings left behind allude to a story once thought forgotten. To restore balance and reclaim the land, you will be faced with questions that not even the gods know the answer to.
A Beautifully Frigid World
Explore a landscape of unending winter framed by snow-capped peaks and crawling fog. The remnants of an ancient civilization lie before you, but don't let awe turn into carelessness -- snow storms can crop up at any moment and bury you in a blizzard. Luckily, you can leave footprints in the snow and follow your footsteps back if you are lost.
