'Elea' (ALL) Comes to PS4 Later This Month

Elea is an interactive storytelling adventure inspired by the work of the classic 20th century sci-fi authors.

Elea is a surreal sci-fi adventure game in which you play as space scientist Elea. Among other themes, the Elea narrative will examine human existence and identity in the context of interstellar travel and the wake of the omniscient A.I.

In 2073, Earth was struck by a horrid childhood disease and Elea’s husband Ethan joined an expedition to colonize Solace, a habitable exoplanet, to save humanity from extinction. The interstellar ship he was on, Pilgrimage, went radio silent shortly after it reached planet Solace.

Thirteen years later, Elea joins a recovery mission on research starship RSS Recovery to investigate the faith of the expedition. What follows is a wondrous journey through space where she encounters phenomena beyond human grasp.

Players will begin their journey through space on the 25th of July. The game has gotten several significant updates since its Xbox One and PC (Steam) release and will come with PS4 Pro enhancements and many new visual, audio and gameplay additions.

Since Elea came out on Xbox One and PC, the game has received significant improvements. With an abundance of useful feedback from the community, the developers haven’t been sitting around after its release. The game received many bug fixes, graphical improvements, and optimized gameplay flow among others. For the new PS4 version, they’ve added over 200 tweaks and additions to the game. The team has also increased the movement speed and the clarity of Elea. Furthermore, they’ve added new assets, upgraded the lighting and interactions improvements to make the mysterious world of ELEA look even more stunning in the first person perspective. The PS4 version also has a new save system with more progression checkpoints throughout the game. 

ELEA will get extra enhancements for the PS4 Pro version. The game already looks and plays well on the regular PS4, but the added power that comes with the PS4 Pro has enabled the game to enhance several aspects. The resolution increases from Dynamic 1080p on the PS4 , to Dynamic 4K on the PS4 Pro. Furthermore, the enhanced version has better visual effects like high quality reflections, anisotropic filtering and shadows. All these additions improve the player immersion in the game, which is essential for a sci-fi adventure set in space.

Key Features:

  • Immerse yourself in the fully explorable and beautifully created fictional world of Project Elea. Claustrophobic old-school space environments alternate with beautiful vistas and highly detailed interiors thanks to Unreal Engine 4.
  • Project Elea offers a rich and unsettling narrative, inspired by the books of classic Sci-Fi authors like Stanislaw Lem, Arthur C. Clarke and Frank Herbert.
  • Interact with almost anything in the game; solve logical puzzles, including periodic physically based distractions.
  • Expect the unexpected on this curious journey through outer space

Currently available on Xbox One and PC, Elea is coming to PS4 on July 25, 2019.
