Explore the final frontier as Morphite arrives on Xbox One

by Gareth Brierley (thelostisland)September 20, 2017

Space: the final frontier. Are you ready to buckle up, put on your space pants and go out into the unknown and explore new worlds?

Well if you are then Morphite might just be the game for you. Released today on Xbox One for the bargain price of £11.99, this game promises to mix space travel, with first person shooting and platformer goodness. You’ll also be able to pick it up on iOS, Nintendo Switch, PS4 and PC.

It’s a game that has it roots in influences such as Metroid Prime, and most recently the PS4 title, No Mans Sky. What makes this game different though is in its complete and complex narrative and quest guide. But you can also just spend your time exploring the randomly generated worlds, scanning plants and alien life forms for forever and a day.

If you like the sound of that, then get over to the Xbox Games Store now. Our review will be with you very soon too – maybe even by the time you are reading this.

Edit: That review is indeed live! Hit it up

Game description

Morphite is an atmospheric exploration sci-fi shooter with platforming elements.
Your goal is to explore the galaxy, research plants and animals, battle hostile entities, and unravel a mystery surrounding a rare material called Morphite. Morphite is set to be a deep and enriching single player experience with both a story-driven plot as well as open-ended, player-driven exploration and discovery.
The story of Morphite takes place in a far off future when humanity has long since populated the distant reaches of space. The player takes on the role of Myrah Kale, a young woman residing on a space station and workshop under the care of her surrogate father, Mr. Mason. What starts as a simple exploratory mission to gather supplies to support their shop rapidly turns into a journey revealing Myrah’s unknown past and her relationship to a rare, coveted, and nearly extinct material called Morphite.
In order to unlock and understand the mysteries of her past, Myrah must travel to undiscovered planets, roam uncharted sectors of space, and confront exotic creatures and locales in search of this Morphite.
Aside from the main storyline, the worlds of Morphite are randomly generated.
Encounter various creature types, landscapes, caves, rivers, and more to explore. Explore space stations, abandoned or infested with alien life.
