Now Playing: THE PATHLESS - Official PS5 Gameplay Walkthrough

Thanks to the powerful hardware packed into the PlayStation 5, The Pathless will run at 60 FPS. And with the DualSense's haptic trigger effects, creative director Matt Nava said players will "feel the force of every arrow shot" while playing The Pathless on PS5 with the latest generation of controllers.

Published by Annapurna Interactive, The Pathless is the latest game from Abzu developer Giant Squid. Players take control of The Hunter, a master archer who must rid the world of a suffocating darkness. By forging a deep connection with an eagle companion and exploring vast environments, players will hunt down a variety of corrupted spirits in order to free them from their imprisonment.

The Pathless joins a growing list of PlayStation 5 launch titles, including the Demon's Souls remake, looter-slasher Godfall, Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and Sackboy: A Big Adventure.
