Another new announcement at today’s State of Play livestream, Away: The Survival Series puts you in the shoes (so to speak) of a sugar glider making their way in the animal kingdom. While sugar gliders are adorable, those adorability isn’t going to save you from other animals, so interacting with the rest of the world in a way where you do not die is paramount.
Check out the trailer for the game below.

The game is set in the distant future and is intended to feel like the player is stepping into a wildlife documentary rather than just playing a game set in nature. On the PlayStation blog, director Laurent Bernier explained how much detail they are really going into in order to create the best possible natural world.
“In order to feel truly immersed in nature, we set out to create a visually stunning world filled with colorful, vibrant environments. Given the Sugar Glider’s small size, we made sure every plant, leaf, and blade of grass was accounted for, and this attention to detail pays off when you navigate the wide variety of landscapes in Away.”
Away was not given a release date, but one would presume it isn’t coming until 2020. The game has only been announced for the PlayStation 4.
