The first day of PAX has seen a ton of announcements as the expo begins to heat up, and, to join in on the fun, Ubisoft has announced Outland for the PSN. In development by Housemarque, the minds behind Super Stardust HD, the game takes a lot of inspiration from the Prince of Persia series.
The press release from Ubisoft can be read below along with a few screens of the game. Look for Outland to release on the PlayStation Network early 2011.
Outland puts players in the middle of a world of balance and chaos where their efforts allow them to bridge the ancient divide, or doom the world to destruction. Each player’s adventure will take them between light and darkness and force them to adapt to an ever-changing world. This light versus dark core gameplay is inspired by the arcade classic Ikaruga.
Immersed in a beautiful world doomed by chaos, players will test their swordplay by running, jumping and climbing to dodge the deadly traps of a world on the brink of collapse. Outland will feature unique high-definition graphics and an immersive soundtrack composed by Ari Pulkkinen, acknowledged for his work on the award-winning Trine project.
