A shadow of its inspiration
Praey for the Gods will no doubt look instantly familiar to PlayStation veterans. Developed by No Matter Studios, the team has always been open about the game's stark similarities to Shadow of the Colossus, one of Sony's most iconic games. It largely follows the same structure, tasking you with traversing a frozen...
Shadow of the Colossus-esque adventure out now
If you've been following its journey, Praey for the Gods has been a long time coming. After years of development and a legal issue forcing a (slight) name change, No Matter Studios has finally finished its open world survival action game. It's available right now for both PlayStation 5 and PS4,...
No Matter Studios issues update
Praey for the Gods developer No Matter Studios announced in late October of last year that it was targeting a Q1 2021 launch for its Shadow of the Colossus-like title, but that sort of hasn't happened. The game hasn't hit either of Sony's platforms just yet, so the team
Shadow of the Colossus-like
It's been a seriously long time since we last heard from Praey for the Gods, hasn't it? This upcoming experience that attempts to emulate Shadow of the Colossus has just been confirmed for PlayStation 5 alongside a current-gen release, arriving in early 2021 for both consoles. Check out the gameplay trailer above to see...
Praey for the Gods is a boss climbing open world adventure game where you play as a lone hero sent to the edge of a dying frozen world to discover the mystery behind a never-ending winter. Arriving with only the clothes on your back, you must survive the colossal dangers that you encounter. To restore balance and reclaim the land from the brink, you will be faced with questions that not even a God knows the answer to.
Scale Massive Beasts: Overcome impossible odds to climb atop and defeat the massive beasts that are bound to this land.
Climb, Glide, Swim: You can climb on virtually anything you can get your hands on, from ruins and mountains to the massive beasts that inhabit the land. Ascend to the tops of mountains and then glide over the open world to reach previously inaccessible locations. Swim in frigid water to uncover hidden locations that contain secrets and treasure, but don't stay in too long or your swim could become your last.
Explore, Craft, and Survive: You'll arrive on a frozen island with only the clothes on your back — it's up to you to survive. Make fires, hunt for food, and find the equipment you need to make it through an eternal winter. Nature isn't the only danger, so craft weapons, defeat minions for better gear, and venture into long forgotten caves to discover their secrets. Triumphing over these trials will prepare you for the impossible odds that wait.
Make Your Path: Praey for the Gods is a non-linear game where you choose who you battle and how. The large beasts can be attempted in any order allowing you to set the course.
Unravel the Mystery: Why won't the winter stop? Why has no one returned? Cryptic paintings left behind allude to a story once thought forgotten. To restore balance and reclaim the land, you will be faced with questions that not even the gods know the answer to.
A Beautifully Frigid World: Explore a landscape of unending winter framed by snow-capped peaks and crawling fog. The remnants of an ancient civilization lie before you, but don't let awe turn into carelessness — snow storms can crop up at any moment and bury you in a blizzard. Luckily, you can leave footprints in the snow and follow your footsteps back if you are lost.
