ABZU, the underwater world on the Playstation 4
At this year’s E3, another title for PS4 was announced. This time we will plunge into the depths of the ocean.
The new project from the creators of Journey (now Giant Squid studio) is mysteriously named ABZU. The game draws inspiration from the deep, innate history we all carry in our collective subconscious, a common origin myth that continues across cultures. The title itself refers to the oldest concepts of Mesopotamian mythology: it is a combination of two ancient words AB, which means – ocean and ZU, which means to know. Loosely translated, we can say that Abzu is simply an ocean of wisdom. For now, it’s too early to say anything about the design of the game itself. We know, however, that the creators place great emphasis on aesthetics, appearance and style. We can guess that our main character will be a scuba diver traveling the skies of the ocean, which can also be seen in the following video – trailer.
