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, releasing yesterday, 14th December 2021.
As you can see from the above launch trailer, there are strong Shadow of the Colossus vibes, with huge monstrous beings to clamber across and ultimately take down. There are some notable differences, however; this game whisks you away to a freezing open world tundra, which will be just as big a threat as the giants. Aside from facing those big bosses, you'll need to set up camps to keep warm, hunt for food, and find better equipment. You can also climb, glide, and swim basically anywhere, so exploration will be a big factor as well.
On top of all that, you'll have some more sensible-sized enemies to deal with on your quest to find out why the land is trapped in an everlasting winter. It's described as a non-linear experience, so you can tackle the beasts in any order and freely explore the world. It sounds great on paper — now, though, we can all finally try it for ourselves.
It's available now on PS Store for £24.99/$29.99, which entitles you to both the PS5 and PS4 versions. Will you be checking out Praey for the Gods? Stab the weak spots in the comments section below.
