The Making of Scars Above: The Art

Scars Above is heading to Xbox at the end of February and today the developers’ Prime Matter, have released a Making of Trailer, exploring the art of the game, but first here’s a refresher of what to expect. With Scars above looking so promising here’s a reminder of what to expect, with the gameplay trailer released last month.


And here’s the latest press release followed by the new making of trailer.


Key members of the development team run through the thinking, mechanics and execution of the art, design and environment in Scars Above.

The challenging sci-fi third-person action adventure shooter combines the best elements of combat, story-telling and exploration of a mysterious alien world. The game puts players in the space-boots of Dr Kate Ward, an astronaut and scientist, sent to explore a colossal and enigmatic alien structure – The Metahedron – that appears in Earth’s orbit.

Things don’t go as planned and the Metahedron hauls Kate and her team across space onto a mysterious extrasolar planet where she wakes up alone on a strange and hostile world; determined to survive, she sets out to find your crew and unravel the mystery behind what’s happened.

Players need to examine their surroundings, scan and analyse alien fauna and flora of the dangerous extrasolar planet, then use the gained knowledge to create various elemental weapons, gadgets, and consumables.

They will also need to rely on offensive and tactical devices, use the environment to their advantage and exploit weaknesses of monstrous creatures to survive against the odds; all the while trying to unlock the mystery of an ancient alien civilization and uncover the truth about what happened to Kate and her team.

Scars Above releases 28 February 2023 on PC, Gen 8 and Gen 9 consoles.
