The release date after Solar Ash’s postponement
Solar Ash, according to the development team, is set in same universe of the previous title created by the studio, but it is not to be considered a direct sequel to it. With this game, Heart Machine ditches 2D pixel-style graphics, in favor of a more open 3D world, and a third person view of the character. It structures itself in a platform action game, where it will be possible to find submerged cities, vast water areas, dangerous areas full of lava and much more. In the past few days, the developers expressed a desire to see how the speedrunners would “break” the game.
Alx Preston, creative director, has indeed admitted to being a lover of speedrunning, and says he is fascinated by the commitment that players put into finishing games quickly, and the union that can be glimpsed in this community. Now, even the developer of Solar Ash himself will have to wait until the release date of the game, scheduled this time for theDecember 2, 2021, on PS4, PS5 and PC. The motivation behind this was given by the desire to further improve and refine some aspects of the game, for which it seems that a little more time is still needed.
