Sony is strengthening its Chinese game publishing efforts, and it’s picked up the rights to publish co-op shooter Convallaria worldwide. Scheduled to release on both PS5 and PS4, this one reminds us a little bit of Lost Planet – albeit without the snow. According to PlayStation’s official description, the title blends “PVP and PVE”, as “players travel through a unique world in which science fiction and fantasy intertwine”. It actually looks very beautiful in the gameplay trailer above.

The blurb continues: “Players will be able to work together to take down large bosses as they leverage a diverse collection of weapons, and combat styles. For the more combative player, they’ll be able to go head to head in with up 100 fellow combatants as they seek to compete missions and secure resources in an openly hostile game world.” So, structurally it sounds a little bit like EXOPRIMAL, with its uneasy alliances.

The game’s being developed by a team called Loong Force, and it’s thankful for Sony’s support: “During the past few years of development, we have faced many challenges, but with funding from, and the help of Sony Interactive Entertainment and our partners, the team has overcome many difficulties,” lead Xu Min said. “We are looking forward to the opportunity of sharing more news on Convallaria very soon.”

Is this one on your radar at all?
