DISCOVER A LUSH HIDDEN WORLD AS YOU DESCEND INTO THE HEART OF THE OCEAN, WHERE ANCIENT SECRETS LIE FORGOTTEN AND ENCOUNTERS WITH MAJESTIC CREATURES AWAIT.
Our first project with Giant Squid is available on PlayStation, Xbox One and Steam. Play another groundbreaking work of art from Matt Nava, the creative force behind the look and feel of JOURNEY, Sony’s fastest selling downloadable title.
Set in a mesmerizing underwater world, ABZÛ will take players on an epic adventure into the depths of the sea, where they will encounter majestic creatures and discover long lost secrets. With Ab meaning ‘ocean’ and Zû meaning ‘to know’, the game takes its name from the Ancient Mesopotamian word for a mythical Ocean of Wisdom.
The Telegraph noted that “the underwater controls are sublime, the soundtrack by Austin Wintory is perfect; choral swells and orchestral build-ups, a real sense of place and spirituality. If exploring an underwater paradise and uncovering a fantastic story appeals to you, then give this stunning little gem a go.”
