It has become a habit, the PlayStation Blog shares with us some information about the creation of games (often exclusive) via interviews and discussions with the designers. Today it’s Returnal’s turn and a pretty cool boss: Hyperion.
If you haven’t played the game and want to keep it a surprise, I don’t recommend reading the article but for the others, it’s quite interesting. It’s over here!
The post explains how the environment was designed to fit the music in this biome as well as the fight itself which is completely consistent with the music.
I will confess that I only met him once and beat him in the process, so some parts of the article make me discover things I missed (forever it seems if I understood correctly, because once beaten the atmosphere of the biome changes).
In any case, good reading! (as a gift a video of the fight).
