There’s a new game on the horizon known as ADR1FT and it’s set to release on the Xbox One later this year. We’re not certain of an exact release date, but rumors peg a possible announcement for a September retail launch.
Anyone who wants to play the game on a console before September needs a PlayStation 4 since it is set to be digitally released on that system on July 15, 2016 for $19.99. Furthermore, anyone who is unable to wait can play ADR1FT on a powerful enough PC right now.
ADR1FT is a first first-person title set in space. The main character is Alex Oshima, an astronaut who awakens in space to find herself floating among the debris of a partially destroyed space ship. From every indication, she’s the only survivor and we’re guessing she must find a way to get home.
Other games coming out for the Xbox One this year include the likes of Resident Evil 4 and Forza Horizon 3. Microsoft recently released a video showcasing all the titles set to hit store shelves before the end of 2016.
Here’s the full description of ADR1FT:
“ADR1FT is the story of Commander Alex Oshima who wakes up floating amongst the debris of the destroyed Northstar IV space station with no memory of who she is, no memory of the catastrophic event that took the lives of her crew and a badly damaged EVA suit slowly leaking oxygen.”
There’s an Oculus VR version of this game, but it is not yet certain if the developer is aiming to support PlayStation VR when it becomes available later in the year.
IGN had some kind and not so kind words to say about the game.
“Adr1ft is a beautiful recreation of floating through the terrifying and lonely vacuum of space in a bulky, near-future spacesuit. This journey through a thoroughly destroyed space station has some moments of serenity and beauty, especially when looking down on the Earth below. But it struggles to build a game around its simulation, and soon becomes as directionless as its name suggests.”
It seems the game is enjoyable, but only for a while. Check it out and let us know what you think in the comments below!
