The third-person action adventure game Kena: Bridge of Spirits made a real impression when it was announced during a PlayStation 5 reveal event in June 2020. It is an exploration game steeped in history about a young woman who travels to an abandoned village in search of a sacred mountain shrine. What she discovers, however, is an overgrown forest trapped in wandering spirits known as red. By finding them and freeing them, she gains powerful abilities, transforms the world around her and ultimately lifts the curse that has darkened the forgotten village.
It was also confirmed for PC through the Epic Games Store and should be out later that year. However, in September it was postponed to early 2021 as it was difficult to work from home during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Today developer Ember Labs released a new gameplay trailer during Sony’s State of Play event that gives us another look at the world Kena will explore and the monsters she will fight against as she travels. We also finally have an updated release date. It’s going to take a little longer than expected – Q3 instead of Q1 – but Kena: Bridge of Spirits is set to launch on August 24th now.
Kena: Bridge of Spirits is now available for pre-order from the Epic Store and offers a fine selection of hats for those who wake up early. You can also find more information about the game at emberlab.com.
