Rooted deep within the heart of the elusive Rocky Mountains lie dense forests, arcane ruins and expansive lands that beg to be explored. With aid of a mechanical exoskeleton, this is made all but possible, allowing you to fly through the air with inexplicable speed and efficiency. It also grants the ability to control life and death – but foolhardy adventurers best beware that experiencing either for oneself could well have similar effects on this mysterious, foreign realm.
Valley is the newest creation sprung from Slender: The Arrival developer Blue Isle Studios, that aims to be a “First-Person adventure unlike any other.” Empowered by the newly-invented L.E.A.F suit (Leap Effortlessly through Air Functionality) Valley sees players journey through “vast environments,” encountering “ancient ruins” and “charming creatures” as they control the life and death of the living things around them.
This new power isn’t to be taken lightly however. Whilst the upgradeable suit permits players to gain new abilities and strengths, the more you experience death in the game, the more the valley will die around you.
The game was officially announced back in April, but developer Blue Isle Studios has now revealed new footage offering a closer look at Valley’s exploratory elements and live-giving abilities. You can watch the gameplay trailer below (via. PlayStation Blog).
As seen in the video, Valley’s gameplay oversees the player’s exploration of a rusted complexes and open grasslands inhabited by intriguing, alien creatures. The L.E.A.F suit appears to grant the ability to walk on walls, as well as implement a grapple-hook-like feature that propels the player through the air between platforms. As stated on the PlayStation Blog, you’ll also be able to “give life to dying trees and animals” and “leap the distance of an entire football field.”
