The Beauty of PLANET ALPHA for the PS4 Showcased in New Trailer

Sony has released an announcement trailer for PLANET ALPHA, which is being developed by Team 17 Digital for the PS4. Not many details were provided outside of the trailer itself, but the visuals showcased in it may be all you need to put this game on your radar.

It appears to be a side-scrolling adventure game that will mix in some platforming and puzzle elements, but the true wonder may be in its visuals, which provide vibrant looking alien planet landscapes complete with their own unique environments and native species. The game just has one of those intoxicating visual designs to it, and I’m sure the serene sounding music featured in the trailer also helps to prop up this game’s dreamy looking graphics.

At this time a release date hasn’t been posted for PLANET ALPHA, nor any additional details outside of what is showcased in the trailer above.


PLANET ALPHA is coming to PlayStation 4 in 2018. PLANET ALPHA, a beautiful alien world filled with mystery and danger. Pursued by relentless enemies, you must harness the power of night and day as you struggle to survive.
