From small insects to large mammals, you will be able to play as a variety of new animals as you encounter them in the wild

MONTREAL, June 26, 2019 — One month after announcing AWAY: The Survival Series for PS4 during Sony’s State of Play, Canadian developer Breaking Walls has released brand new gameplay footage of AWAY and revealed an exciting new feature: the ability to play as other animals!

Watch here:

Inspired by nature documentaries, AWAY: The Survival Series is an adventure game that takes you on the Sugar Glider’s journey into the wild. As cataclysmic storms threaten the survival of every species on Earth, you must explore vast environments in search of safer lands for you and your family.

While the game tells the story of the Sugar Glider, you will now have the opportunity to play as some of the other animals you encounter in the wild. From tiny insects to large mammals, each animal has its own unique traits and attributes, allowing you to experience the world of AWAY from a variety of new perspectives.

In the new gameplay footage, you get a sneak peek of some of the playable animals, featuring the lizard, rat, frog, spider, praying mantis, wolf, and crab.

Throughout the video, you also get a glimpse of the rich ecosystems in AWAY as you witness the Sugar Glider jump, climb, and glide through an organic world bursting with life. The video also showcases the Sugar Glider’s flashy fighting skills as it takes on a giant scorpion in a fight to the death!

Breaking Walls also announced a release window for AWAY today, with the game set to release on PC and PS4 in Q1 2020.
