Deck 13 Interactive's Atlas Fallen is an upcoming PS5 action RPG, and in a behind-the-scenes reveal, we get a few tantalising glimpses of gameplay set in this sand-strewn fantasy world. It's a vast one, with a focus on locomotion and exploration, and its launch is sneaking up: Atlas Fallen launches on PS5 on 10th August.

The developers take what was learnt in the underrated series of sci-fi Soulslikes, The Surge and The Surge 2, and dial the speed up to 11. You can still expect titanic boss encounters and tense combat, but this is a bigger, more open world with an extra emphasis placed on exploration and mobility. Actually, in a few ways, it kind of reminds us of Forspoken in that, except that this is very much a cooperative game, with the ability to tear up the dunes with a friend always on the table.
