We’ve known for some time now that Soul Axiom was set to release on the Xbox One. However, its developers hadn’t specified a date, so we were left completely in the dark. It was first released on the Windows PC platform via Steam, but with the game’s release on consoles, it is clear its developers want a piece of the console market. It’ll also be packaging in exclusive content to lure in Xbox One users, — an entire chapter of gameplay that won’t be available for the PC version or other consoles.
Here’s the game’s description according to the developers:
From the indie games studio that brought you Master Reboot comes a first-person story-driven adventure puzzle game, set in the beautiful, haunting cyber-world of Elysia. Collect unique hand powers, discover multiple endings and choose your own destiny as you unravel the mystery of your digital afterlife. Explore Soul Axiom’s rich environments and immersive story to unravel the mystery of your life, and your digital afterlife. You will be taken on an intriguing voyage of discovery, through beautiful, haunting locations, facing challenges that will lead you into danger on your mission to unlock your identity, your story, your mystery. But beware: some mysteries are better left unsolved.
The game garnered significant attention from critics and gamers alike, and we expect the same from the Xbox One version. In terms of graphics, it shouldn’t differ too much from the Windows PC version seeing as it is not a demanding video game. However, whether or not it will play just as smooth is up in the air right now.
Soul Axiom for Xbox One is due to launch come June 8, 2016, just a few days before E3 2016. We’re surprised the developers decided to release the game so close to the big gaming event where titles such as Call of Duty: Infinity Warfare and Battlefield 1 will be showcased, ultimately sucking up all the spotlight from everything else.
