The Speedrunning Platformer Neon White Comes to PlayStation Later This Month

By | December 1, 2022

Angel Matrix announced that its first-person platformer game will be hitting PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 on December 13.

The PlayStation 5 version will run at 120hz. “When precision matters, the high framerate makes a difference. We’ve also made the most of the system SSD to reduce load times significantly,” says game director Ben Esposito.

“It’s important that restarting levels is as quick and painless as possible. If you want to beat your friends’ leaderboard times, you’ll be restarting levels over and over again.”

The game will also take advantage of the PS5 DualSense controller’s adaptive triggers when players utilize each of their Soul Cards to traverse through the many levels and puzzles it has to offer.

“You’ll feel it when you’re moving faster on water and you’ll get a subtle confirmation when you successfully snipe a distant demon,” Esposito says. The DualSense controller will support gyroscope aiming too.

Neon White was first released on Nintendo Switch and PC on June 16. Be sure to check out some tips to get started on the game ahead of its PlayStation launch.

In IGN’s Neon White review, we said, “Neon White is a quick and compulsive first-person platformer that’s surprisingly simple to understand and play, but packs a very stern speedrunning challenge at its core.”
