Third-person action-adventure game Kena Bridge of Spirits has finally got a launch date. The game’s launch was delayed several times during the pandemic and this is the latest release date which is most likely confirmed as it has been announced just about a month before. The game is set to launch on August 24 on PS5, PS4 and PC (via the Epic Games Store). If you purchase it on PS4, you’ll get the upgraded PS5 version of the game for free. The game is priced at $39.99, making it one of the less expensive games on the PS5.
Kena: Bridge of Spirits is developed by Ember Lab. The game features the exploits of Kena, a girl who finds herself in a destroyed village. She will try to bring some order to the village by taking the help of spirits from other realms.
As the protagonist of the game, you’ll have a host of magical powers at your disposal as Kena, which will have their uses against a dark entity that aims to wreak havoc in the village. As for the weapons, Kena could make use of a staff for melee and charged attacks and a bow for ranged attacks. To defend yourself, you can use a magical shield whose energy depletes with usage. The game also adds a number of puzzles to make things interesting for Kena. Spirit companions like the Rot can be instructed to move objects, change their body form into someone else’s and more.
