Unlike many PS5 titles like Horizon Forbidden West, this isn't a cross-generation game, it's being released exclusively on the PS5. The game uses the ultra-fast SSD in the PS5 to facilitate traversing worlds, instantly hopping from one dimension to the next. It also supports playing the game in two different modes: a 4K mode and a 60 FPS mode.

The standard edition of the game will be $70, while the Digital Deluxe edition is $80. Any preorders of the game will come with the Carbonox armor and Pixelizer bonus weapon, while the Digital Deluxe edition comes with 20 Raritanium for upgrades, a digital sticker pack for photo mode, digital artbook and a digital soundtrack.

You can take a look at the Carbonox armor below, which sports ray-tracing in its reflections.
