THE PATHLESS: Creators of ABZÛ Release Over 5 Minutes of Stunning Gameplay Footage

There's no denying that The Pathless is one of the most promising games on the horizon, and if you can't wait to play the original sandbox, Sony has shared over 5 minutes of gameplay footage from the project.

The game's brand-new trailer — which made its debut during yesterday's State of Play event — puts the spotlight on its unique features and stunning universe inhabited by various — often enormous — creatures.

For those unfamiliar with The Pathless, it's being developed by Giant Squid, the renowned makers of ABZÛ.

In the game, you take on the role of the Hunter, a master of archery who embarks on a great journey to lift the curse of darkness that grips her world. The Pathless will arrive on PS4, PS5, and PC sometime this year.

According to the team at Giant Squid, the PS5 version of The Pathless will offer a true next-gen experience, featuring a handful of unexpected innovations and no unpleasant load screens. "We stream our level from the disk as fast as possible, and with the unparalleled power of the PS5’s SSD we can stream in distant parts of the level with no loss of performance," Creative Director Matt Nava said. "Slowly filling progress bars are a thing of the past; the only thing you won’t be able to do is check your phone."

To learn more about the gameplay mechanics of The Pathless, take a closer look at the trailer down below:

From the creators of ABZÛ comes a new atmospheric adventure- The Pathless. Become the Hunter, a master of archery whose mission is to dispel the curse of darkness that grips her world. Forge a connection with an eagle companion as you explore a vast, forested island full of secrets. Solve puzzles in ancient ruins and test your skill in epic battles. Hunt corrupted spirits, but be careful not to become the hunted yourself. The bond with your eagle and the fate of the world hang in the balance.

The Pathless is coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC (via the EGS) in 2020.
