Psychedelic Metroidvania ‘ULTROS’ Shares 7-Minute Gameplay Preview

Sweden-based developer Hadoque, Kowloon, and Kepler Ghost have shared a seven-minute narrated gameplay preview of their upcoming psychedelic metroidvania game, ULTROS.

Prospective players can get a better grasp on the title’s systems, presentation, and other tangentially related facets.

A physical deluxe edition has also been announced by Maximum Games for PlayStation 5, set to feature a digital soundtrack, art book, magnet, three art cards, a reversible art sheet, and a deluxe sleeve.

Prospective players can get a better look at the platforming, boss battles, and exploration coated across this uniquely presented experience. In this alien adventure boasting artwork by El Huervo from the Hotline Miami series, players will attempt to uncover cosmic mysteries within the world of The Sarcophagus. This “cosmic uterus [holds] an ancient demonic being known as ULTROS.”

Combat utilizes a blade and is reactionary-heavy. Fights are defined by urgency, with close-quarter bouts where precision means everything. Further, if you die, you’ll be looped back in time prior to that fate. The title is also characterized by its environmental storytelling and the inhabitants you will encounter.

You can view the official ULTROS narrated gameplay preview below:

ULTROS will launch for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store on February 13, 2024.
