Exo One gets new trailer, release later this year

Soar blimey.

Exo One - the interplanetary exploration game from Exbleative - has been given a new gameplay trailer from alternative E3 indie showcase Guerrilla Collective.

It's also been given a narrowed down release window of 2020. Coming to PC, you can wishlist - and download a demo - on Steam.

Exo One is a long time coming - we first spotted it at Rezzed in 2017, where it was named one of our best games from the show.

"It's a relaxing, almost trancelike way to play, but the payoff when you get some real speed up and go gliding up into the clouds is really something else."
