Superbrothers, the designer behind Sword & Sworcery, announced its newest game, Jett: The Far Shore, at Sony’s PlayStation 5 “Future of Gaming” livestream event.

The trailer didn’t reveal much about the game, but it did show two young explorers sent on an intergalactic space mission. In the trailer, the two start in a small village where a spaceship waits for them in the distance. The ship takes off and the trailer says, “Carve out a future for a people, haunted by oblivion, propelled by dreams.”

The ship then docks in a larger station and the trailer cuts ahead hundreds of years. Finally, after centuries aboard their spacecraft, the two disembark on strange alien worlds and explore them with speeder bikes. It’s not exactly clear what they’re searching for, but it seems like they’re looking for a new home for their people. The two seem to search a variety of different worlds, including planets of dust and planets with giant oceans.

Jett: The Far Shore will be released sometime in Holiday 2020 for PlayStation 5.
