EA’s adventure game “Sea of Solitude” now has a release date. The publisher confirmed on Tuesday that “Sea of Solitude” will launch worldwide on July 5th on PC through the Origin app, PS4, and Xbox One.
The company calls “Sea of Solitude” an “emotional experience that takes players on a personal journey to overcome a young woman’s inner loneliness.” In the game, players must help Kay see below the surface and beyond, guiding her through a flooded city landscape in a tale of darkness and light. As waters rise and fall to reflect her own state of mind, Kay will meet fantastical creatures and monsters, learn their stories and solve challenges to rid the world of tainted memories.
“Sea of Solitude centers on the essence of loneliness and tugs on the heartstrings of its players by mirroring their own reality. It’s by far the most artistic and personal project I’ve ever created, written during a very emotional time in my life,” said Cornelia Geppert, CEO of Jo-Mei Games. “Designing characters based on emotions was a deeply personal achievement for our team and we’re so excited for players to soon experience Kay’s powerful story of self-discovery and healing.”
The new game is an intimate adventure across a beautiful and evolving world where nothing is quite as it seems. Kay’s journey unfolds around dynamic environments as atmospheric in-game weather help visualize the characters’ emotions. Players unlock new areas to explore by overcoming emotional challenges and progressively revealing light and color into the dark and stormy world. Through unique encounters with a variety of beautiful and terrifying monsters, Kay will discover why her loneliness has turned her into a monster and what it will take to change back to a human.
Sea of Solitude is a new EA Original developed by the team at Jo-Mei Games in Berlin, Germany. The new game is rated T for Teen and will launch with an MSRP of $19.
