If you're looking for a dangerous expedition out into the stars, then your ticket just got punched. Journey to the Savage Planet, the first-person interstellar adventure from Typhoon Studios, is set to land on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on January 28, 2020.
Journey to the Savage Planet puts you in the shoes of an employee of Kindred Aerospace, the "fourth best" interstellar exploration company. You're dropping on an uncharted planet with little hope or equipment, and told to explore. Is the planet fit for human life? Well, you're the guinea pig who will find that out.
This comes by way of Typhoon Studios, a new studio headed up by former Ubisoft creative director Alex Hutchinson. And while the premise is fairly interesting, it's also simlar to things we've seen before. As Caty noted in her preview, it does a lot of cool things, but nothing stood out in ways they don't already in other, similar adventures.
It does have a lot to love in the way of exploration though, so if other games haven't quite been scratching the itch of discovery mixed with traversal, Journey to the Savage Planet might just hit the spot. Hopefully it can find a stronger hook among the rising tide of games like No Man's Sky, The Outer Worlds, and Outer Wilds.
We'll see more as we get closer to the new year, when Journey to the Savage Planet touches down on consoles and PC. To keep up with all the news coming in today due to Gamescom 2019's imminent arrival, check out guide to all the publisher streams happening today.
