State of Play: Away: The Survival Series Is Sugar Gliding onto PS4

Away the Survival Series for PS4 Announced The World Seen by a Flying Squirrel

Third-person adventure game AWAY: The Survival Series announced for PS4, PC

Sony's recently concluded State of Play event brought plenty of news, but one of the more intriguing reveals has to be Away: The Survival Series.

Announced during State of Play, Away: The Survival Series is a game that puts you in the metaphorical shoes of a Sugar Glider, a member of the possum family. As such, we will be able to venture into the wilderness, on a journey during which we will encounter numerous other animal creatures.

Set in a distant future, Away takes you on the adventures of the Sugar Glider. It's inspired by nature documentaries, and will feature similar narration to convey its story. By far, the scariest moment shown in the trailer has to be the spider at the end, so if you have arachnophobia like me, prepare yourself.
