After more than four years in development, Tokyo-based independent studio Friend & Foe will finally be releasing its hallucinatory adventure on January 15th. Vane is available for pre-order on the PlayStation Store and pre-orders retail at $24.99 / €21.99 / £17.99, and include a dynamic Vane theme.
In an interview with PSU, Friend & Foe said: “The environments are fairly open, so a playthrough can have a fair amount of variability to it; but we think the main path of the game is between 3-5 hours.”
Check out what to expect in the trailer below.
Set in a ruined desert, Vane is an exploratory journey, where players will transform between bird and child form to unravel the land’s mysteries and create a path forward through this expansive landscape filled with ominous caves, mysterious machinery and harrowing storms. As they roam this mythical wasteland, the world reacts to their passage, evolving and building into something altogether different.
Vane is the culmination of more than four years of development by the Tokyo-based expat studio Friend & Foe Games, a team with AAA experience spanning titles like The Last Guardian, Killzone, Battlefield 3, and Bionic Commando.
Vane premieres exclusively on PS4 on January 15th.
