Abzu trailer debuts stunning new world reminiscent of ‘Journey’

One of the highlights of Sony’s E3 press event was the debut trailer for Abzu, the first game from former Journey art-director Matt Nava’s new Giant Squid studios. Not surprisingly, the game–set in a variety of ocean habitats–has the same compelling art style as Journey. The press event also revealed that Nava is enlisting Austin Wintory, the Grammy-nominated composer behind the Journey soundtrack. 

The announcement trailer features visuals and a graphical style reminiscent of Nava’s past efforts. There’s a central character who navigates lush kelp forests and encounters enormous sea creatures. The game is scheduled to be released sometime in 2016 and debut first on PS4.
