An exploration sci-fi shooter with platforming elements, Morphite is releasing on September 7 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, and iOS, Blowfish Studios has announced. It’s priced at £11.99 (should be $14.99 USD) on the European PlayStation Store, and pre-ordering saves PlayStation Plus members 20%.
Drawing inspiration from Ratchet & Clank and Metroid Prime, Morphite is set in a distant future where humanity has colonized the far reaches of space and stars Myrah Kale, a young woman whose routine mission turns into an adventure revealing her past and connection to the coveted substance, Morphite.
The description adds that Morphite includes both hand-crafted and procedurally-generated worlds:
Myrah will voyage to the furthest corners of space to explore uncharted planets with diverse landscapes teeming with exotic flora and fauna. With the help of a scanner, Myrah can sell the biological information of organic lifeforms she comes across to purchase upgrades for her ship, suit and weapons.
Inside Myrah’s vessel, players will face random encounters in real-time combat, trade with other space travelers, and utilize an easy-to-use Starmap to navigate a galaxy full of hand-crafted worlds where the fully-voiced main story takes place as well as procedurally-generated planets brimming with side quests.
The features list also reveals that there are huge bosses to battle, you can upgrade your suit to survive harsher conditions, and random weapons and vehicles can be found on planets.
