In development for five years, small Canadian studio Breaking Walls Based in Montreal, and made up of Ubisoft alumni, the title eventually reached more than twice its initial target, and this has been delayed to an unknown later date, because we imagine the same kind of reasons more than many other video game products. From now on, we learn via XboxWire Qiufar It will not only be released on the originally planned platforms but also on Xbox One and Xbox Series X | S.

Your goal is to find a suitable land, a haven of peace where you can live in peace with your family and peers. The peculiarity of this small Australian marsupial is that it has a thin skin membrane between the front and back ends, giving it the ability to fly, a possibility rare in mammals. Overall, the adventure follows a fairly linear story according to your little buddy, but the Breaking Walls title offers many possibilities for thinking outside the box, by giving a pride of place for exploration that will allow you to make a number of surprising discoveries.
In an interview with André Paul Johnson (Growth head sein de Breaking Walls) à WccftechHe was asked how the game would be organized in this exploration aspect. In fact, most of the employees are ex-employees of Ubisoft, we can fear AWAY follows the same example in Doctrine killer Or in far cry-With a number of points of interest on the map and mini-maps to aid in navigation. During this exchange, the party concerned officially overturned this point, confirming A. A true desire within the studio to create the most immersive experience possible.

In this sense, the developer team has attached services Mike RaznickHe is especially known for his musical documentaries.Life“From BBC and”The second planet EarthIn addition, André Paul Johnson Even mentioned, when asked about the possibility of embedding picture mode in far, That this is a much discussed internally feature that the development team really wants to add to the game experience to enhance the aesthetics of the title. Moreover, according to this, Some technical features such as Ray-Tracing will not be out of the question in the future. However, as previously indicated, the title is primarily intended for Xbox One and will not benefit from any real improvement to next-generation consoles when it launches.
