One of the titles revealed at the Future Games Showcase back in March was Deliver Us Mars. Keoken Interactive confirmed with this announcement that Deliver Us The Moon will indeed receive a sequel. A recent PlayStation Blog posts more information about the game.
Koen Deetman who is the Game Director and CEO at Keoken Interactive spoke on the blog and admitted they have been by inspired by Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us: Part II when creating Deliver Us Mars. This is what was said:
We always knew that our next game had to be bigger and bolder than what had come before. The scale of our ambition as a team is constantly growing, spurred on and inspired by some of the most memorable games to come to PlayStation over the last decade – not least Naughty Dog’s masterpiece, The Last of Us Part II.
What Deliver Us Mars Is All About
The sequel takes place ten years on from the events in Deliver Us The Moon. Now extinction looms even closer for humanity. So, according to Keoken.
As part of the crew of the Zephyr, your protagonist’s goal is to retrieve three stolen colony ships from the Red Planet, in order to ensure the continued survival of the human race on Earth. Players will explore Mars as they uncover the origins of a mysterious distress signal that led the crew there.
Anything Else About The Sequel
They have a full motion-captured cast and some other classics are inspiring this sequel.
This next level of storytelling demanded that we take the series to new frontiers. For the first time, we have a fully motion-captured cast to enhance the emotional impact of the story, and we’re giving players new and improved gameplay mechanics including a whole traversal system, inspired by PlayStation classics like Tomb Raider and Uncharted. On top of all of that, we’ll be offering truly next-gen visual fidelity with the support of real-time ray traced shadows and reflections on the PS5.
However, that’s not all as the original game is getting upgraded for the newer consoles which include ray tracing. We took a look at the PC version and tested how this changes the appearance of Deliver Us The Moon. This is a free upgrade due on the 19th of May. However, will you be diving into the sequel when it launches?
