Today is shaping up to be a huge announcement day for indie games and PS4.
On the PlayStation Blog, a new space exploration game was announced titled Drifter, which is set to come to PS4 and PS Vita later this year.
Drifter is an open-world, sandbox, space trading game with a procedurally-generated galaxy 100,000 light years across, made up of tens of thousands of star systems to explore and features an original soundtrack by composer Danny Baranowsky.
In the game you take on the role of a spaceship captain attempting to eke out a living among the stars by trading goods between star systems, hunting pirates for bounties, mining asteroids for valuable ore, or even becoming a pirate yourself.
Drifter will also feature story missions where the player can embark to help advance their character and learn more about the backstory in Drifter.
“In a game as expansive as Drifter, especially because almost everything is procedurally-generated, it’s our job to try and make the game world feel alive and give the player as much choice as possible when it comes to how they might want to play the game. To that end, we are designing Drifter to support a multitude of play styles which cater to as many people as possible,” says Celsius Games Studios Founder Colin Walsh.
