One of the biggest surprises of last night’s PlayStation showcase was just how good Project Eve looks. It’s a new hack-and-slash game for the current generation of consoles, which reminds us of all-time landmark classic action titles from PlatinumGames like Bayonetta and NieR Automata.
Korean studio Shift Up has been working on Project Eve since 2019, but has shown fairly little. That all changed with last night’s trailer, which was the longest and most in-depth look we’ve had at the action game yet.
Project Eve is set in the near future, after the remains of the human race have abandoned Planet Earth because their forces lost a battle against alien invaders. Eve, a paratrooper deployed from the human colony, will adventure through a desolate, ruined Earth and try to take it back from humanity’s greatest enemy if she can.
Project Eve has a focus on parkour traversal and stylish, fluid combat. Most importantly, it looks to be a lot of fun.
To be honest with you, we don’t know. For what it’s worth, Project Eve was originally announced for PlayStation, Xbox and PC.
While they’ve shown Project Eve off at the PlayStation showcase, there has been no word either way on whether the game is now exclusive or whether it will also still release on Xbox Series X/S and Windows PC.
Here’s the trailer for Project Eve, if you missed it last night:
Shift Up has yet to announce a release date for Project Eve. We hope it’s not too long, as we think it looks fun to play.
