Sci-Fi Space Adventure Elea Sets Course For PlayStation 4 On July 25th

Published: July 5, 2019 10:00 AM /



Surreal sci-fi adventure Elea is coming to PlayStation 4 on July 25th. The game will come complete with enhancements for PlayStation 4 Pro.

Since Elea's initial release on Xbox One and Steam, developer Kyodai has implemented several improvements and fixes. All of these will be present in the PS4 version, but Kyodai and publisher SOEDESCO say there will also be "over 200 tweaks and additions" unique to Sony's console. The team has increased the game's movement speed and "clarity". We're not sure what that second part refers to. There are also new assets, upgraded lighting, and improvements to the game's interactions. Finally, there's a new save system with checkpoints sprinkled around more liberally. You can check out the trailer for Elea on PS4 below:

If you've got a PS4 Pro, there's even more swanky stuff coming your way. Elea on PS4 Pro will run in Dynamic 4K rather than the original Dynamic 1080p resolution. The enhanced PS4 Pro version of Elea also features better visual effects in the form of high-quality reflections, anisotropic filtering, and better shadows. Kyodai says the increased immersion these visual changes bring is "essential for a sci-fi adventure set in space". Sounds like PS4 Pro is the way to go if you've got one.

Elea is a sci-fi exploration game in which you play as the titular space scientist. Elea's husband Ethan is part of a mission to colonize a habitable exoplanet, Solace, and save humanity from extinction. Shortly after planetfall, Ethan's ship fell silent. Thirteen years after the event, our heroine travels to Solace in order to find out what happened to the mission and discover the fate of her husband. You can grab it now on Xbox One and Steam. The PlayStation 4 version will be available on July 25th.
