During The Game Awards 2018, Typhoon Studio–pulling together developers from Assassin’s Creed and Batman: Arkham Asylum–revealed a brand-new game coming in 2019 known as Journey to the Savage Planet. In the trailer, we see footage of an derelict pod with a lone astronaut’s body laying outside. In the distance is a bright and colorful alien world. In the background, a voice from the pod calls out to explore the new world.
According to the developers, it’s an up-beat adventure game focusing on the exploration of a hostile alien planet with little to no resources. Though the concept is prime material for another battle-royale or survival game, the developers state that it’s purely an adventure game. We’re still a bit in the dark about what to expect from the game, but the developers stated in a press release what the game’s essence is all about.
“The core tenets of Typhoon are strong flavors, lots of intertwined systems, a penchant for bad jokes and a deep and abiding love of collaborative play,” said Alex Hutchinson, creative director and co-founder, Typhoon Studios. “Journey to the Savage Planet will encompass all of those things and more.”
There’s much more to see with The Game Award 2018, including all the latest reveals and roundup of all the winners.
