The boss of Project Eve developer Shift Up has reportedly purchased a PS5 console for each member of staff at the Korean studio.
As reported by Niko Partners analyst Daniel Ahmad, Shift Up director Kim Hyung Tae purchased some 260 PS5 consoles for his employees following Project Eve’s showing at last week’s PlayStation Showcase.
Project Eve, which has yet to receive a release date, takes place in the “not-too-distant future” in a world where mankind has been driven from Earth by an invading force called the NA:tives.
To reclaim Earth, players step into the shoes of Eve, the survivor of a paratrooper squad deployed from the Colony.
“The Earth, embodied with such graceful graphics that take full advantage of PlayStation 5’s power, will convey unprecedented vibes that stand out from other post-apocalyptic worlds,” Hyung Tae claimed in a PlayStation Blog post following the release of the new Project Eve trailer.
“As you accompany Eve throughout the game, you get one step closer to the secret hidden in this unusual world. Combat in Eve is deliberate – including attack, defense, and evasion – while remaining fluid and zestful. The only way to survive is to grasp the attack patterns of various enemies and counter with precise timing.
“Continue the flow of battle after parrying and evading by weaving in multiple combo skills. Taking down enemies culminates in a spectacular and amusing display of power. The DualSense wireless controller’s haptic feedback amplifies this experience by manyfold. From the sensation of the blade slicing into the enemy to the exceptional skills that tingle your hands.”
