Journey to the Red Planet with Deliver Us Mars for PS4 and PS5 — PlayStation.Blog
Hello brave astronauts! We’re very excited to share some early details on our new game, the cinematic adventure Deliver Us Mars, coming soon to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
As a studio, we’ve really been on an incredible journey over the past few years, and we’re glad so many of you have loved our 2019 debut game, Deliver Us The Moon. We always knew that our next game should be bigger and bolder than the previous one. Our ambitions as a team are constantly growing, spurred on and inspired by some of the most memorable PlayStation games of the last decade, including Naughty Dog’s masterpiece, The Last of Us Part II.
Over the past few years, our team at Keoken has been quietly creating Bring Us Mars to combine the grandeur of a sci-fi epic about saving the world with a personal story and heartfelt motives. We wanted to choose a setting for our game that would reflect our high goals for the project. In our own reality, humanity is facing enormous challenges due to climate change. Just as the space agencies (and some rich people) have their eyes on Mars, so have we.
In Deliver Us Mars, set ten years after Fortuna’s mission in Deliver Us The Moon, humanity is closer than ever to extinction. The goal of your protagonist as part of the crew of the Zephyr is to recover three stolen colony ships from the Red Planet in order to ensure the continued survival of humanity on Earth. Players will explore Mars while uncovering the origin of the mysterious distress signal that brought the crew there.
This next level of storytelling required us to take the series to new frontiers. For the first time, we have a cast fully motion-captured to heighten the emotional impact of the story, and we’re giving players new and improved gameplay mechanics, including an entire movement system inspired by PlayStation classics like Tomb Raider and Uncharted. On top of all that, we’re bringing next-gen true-to-life visual fidelity to PS5 with support for real-time ray-traced shadows and reflections.
Mars is the next frontier, an uncharted world with limitless storytelling potential. You’ll be able to explore the surface of the Red Planet like never before, encountering not only the dusty plains that are synonymous with our view of Mars, but also icy craters and canyons as you unravel the mystery at the heart of the game.
We always wanted to be astronauts. Unfortunately, we never made it, so instead we created the game in hopes of inspiring others to look at the stars – who knows, maybe some of you reading this will make a trip to Mars someday! We hope you enjoy your first look at the development of Deliver Us Mars in this video, and we can’t wait to share the details with you in the coming months.
