Hi people! I’m delighted to be able to tell you all that Exo One is coming to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 this summer. Exo One started five years ago with a relatively simple idea about using gravity as a mechanism of motion, and gradually grew into something weird and special, inspired by my love for sci-fi cinema and games that moved me emotionally. I’m super excited to see it find a new audience and reach new technical heights with this PS5 port.
In Exo One, you’ll embark on a journey beyond the solar system, discovering everything from terrestrial deserts to dreamy gas giants as the pilot of an alien probe. Glide and roll across the landscape, controlling gravity itself to reach colossal speeds and exhilarating heights.
You’ll ride thermal updrafts in boiling cloud formations, swoop down hills and take off from mountain peaks, drifting towards the bright blue beam on the horizon all the time.
I designed this game as a sort of meditative focus on traversal. There is no timer measuring your progress, monsters or enemies to fight. It’s really about the atmosphere and the mix of speed and stillness, like a flowing roller coaster.
Immersive PS5 experience
PS5 gamers with high refresh rate TVs or monitors will have the ability to experience the game in the smoothest and most responsive way, thanks to the 120fps support we’ve added. We’ve also managed to add a few more features for the DualSense wireless controller, with haptics that mirror each planet’s terrain and weather, creating a more immersive experience than ever before.
There is wind resistance in the game, which makes it more difficult to fly. Thanks to the PS5’s haptics, you’ll feel the resistance on the trigger as you glide through winds and updrafts.
The terrain you traverse will also influence the vibrations – on some types of terrain your journey will be accompanied by a steady pulsation, while others will give off a stronger, more shaky vibration.
Controller vibration changes based on your speed. The faster you go, the more strong vibrations you will feel.
Thank you very much for testing Exo One. This game is a real labor of love and means a lot to me, and I think it will be right at home on PlayStation when it launches this summer.
