Kena: Bridge of Spirits Has Already Recouped Its Development Costs

Kena: Bridge of Spirits was released in September to largely positive reviews (including a 9 out of 10 from us) and has performed well in sales. So much so that, according to developer Ember Labs, the game has already broken even on its development cost. In an interview with Bloomberg, Ember Lab heads Josh and Mike Grier discussed Kena's road from development to release. To their surprise, the game has apparently sold well, and while they don't divulge specific sale numbers, they say it's already recouped its initial development costs. It's unclear how much money Kena had behind it, but this is great news for the small studio.  "It's hard to tell what's a huge success," said Josh in the article. "Sony's happy." Kena: Bridge of Spirits is a third-person action-adventure title that stars Kena, a spirit guide, who guides small critters called the Rot to purify a land plagued by a supernatural blight. Along the way, you'll assist wayward souls to help ferry them to the afterlife, while action consists of melee and ranged combat. The game has an old-school linear design and scope, plus it's quite the looker in the art department (Ember Labs cut its teeth as an animation studio, after all). Kena is available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC via the Epic Games Store.  Be sure to read the full interview to learn more about the Kena: Bridge of Spirits' pre-release marketing, as well as our coverage hub for extensive background on the game itself.

    No Man’s Sky: Prisms Update Now Live

    It’s been a joy to view Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox Game Pass members jump in to the new adventures offered up inside our recent Expeditions update to No Man’s Sky , starting afresh on a single planet as everybody else and getting into a fresh journey to claim limited-time rewards just like the Golden Vector Ship and the SSV Normandy SR1 from Mass Effect . We’ve more expeditions and surprises shortly coming.

    Today, excited to have the ability to release our latest update we’re, No Man’s Sky: Prisms , absolve to all owners.

    every part of the overall game has already established a visual overhaul

    Virtually. Planets, skies, stars, creatures, the elements, space stations, and much more. New technology and new art mean they look the very best they’ve ever been. We can’t await players to find the noticeable changes.

    No Mans Sky Prisms Screen 1

    While exploring planets you’ll notice new weather effects, such as for example rain which refracts the light, and surfaces that become wet and slick. Or venture to caves with new lights underground, more descriptive environments, and greater selection of generation.

    Fur has been put into creatures you encounter, bringing extra variety and detail to exploration and companion taming. Flying creatures, such as for example giant beetles, flying worms and colossal butterflies, could be adopted as your companion now, and ridden through the sky.

    Above you, night sky now shines with the light from a large number of distant stars the. New visual and audio effects transform your interstellar experience as you warp between destinations. In the room Station, your freighter, along with other interiors you’ll notice volumetric lights, detailed surfaces from Parallax Occlusion Mapping and gorgeous reflective metallic surfaces.

    No Mans Sky Prisms Screen 3

    Not to mention, with each one of these visual enhancements, it seems sensible to upgrade Photo Mode with improved depth of field and bloom controls too. We love seeing the incredible creativity of our community and therefore are very excited to see what beautiful images they surprise us with next.

    Xbox Series X|S players will find detailed reflections, improved lighting quality, more descriptive biomes and more. Windows PC players with compatible Nvidia graphics cards can take advantage of DLSS, seeing their framerate double potentially.

    No Man’s Sky: Prisms is the third free update of 2021, later this season and we can’t wait to show you what else we have in store.

    Our journey continues.

    No Man’s Sky comes filled with all 12 major updates up to Origins, our 3.0 update which expands the universe.

    Inspired by the imagination and adventure that people love from classic science-fiction, No Man’s Sky presents you with a galaxy to explore, filled up with unique lifeforms and planets, and constant action and danger.

    In No Man’s Sky, every star may be the light of a distant sun, each orbited by planets filled up with life, and you may go to some of them you select. Fly from deep space to planetary surfaces smoothly, without loading screens, no limits. In this infinite procedurally generated universe, you will discover places and creatures that no other players have observed before – as well as perhaps never will again.

    Attempt an epic voyage
    At the centre of the galaxy lies a irresistible pulse which draws you on a journey towards it to understand the real nature of the cosmos. But, facing hostile creatures and fierce pirates, you’ll understand that death comes at a price, and survival will be down to the options you make over the way you upgrade your ship, your suit and weapon.

    Find your personal destiny
    Your voyage through No Man’s Sky is your responsibility. Are you considering a fighter, preying on the taking and weak their riches, or taking right out pirates because of their bounties? Power is yours in the event that you upgrade your ship for weaponry and speed.
    Or perhaps a trader? Find rich resources on forgotten worlds and exploit them for the greatest prices. Spend money on more cargo space and you should reap huge rewards.
    Or an explorer perhaps? Exceed the known discover and frontier places and items that nobody has ever seen before. Upgrade your engines to farther jump ever, and strengthen your suit for survival in toxic environments that would kill the unwary.

    Share your journey
    The galaxy is just a living, breathing place. Trade convoys travel between stars, factions vie for territory, pirates hunt the unwary, and the authorities are watching. Every other player lives in the same galaxy, and it is possible to elect to share your discoveries with them on a map that spans known space. Perhaps you will begin to see the results of their actions as well as your own…
