Today, Ubisoft announced that Grow Home, a quirky experiential climbing adventure developed by Ubisoft Reflections, will be available for download on PlayStation 4 on September 1st, 2015.
In Grow Home, players are free to explore a strange open world full of floating islands, majestic caves and waterfalls set in a beautiful and minimalist art style. Players take on the role of BUD (Botanical Utility Droid), an excitable child-like robot sent on a mission to search the galaxy for a new species of plant that can save his home world.
By growing and directing the giant Star Plant into a towering organic sculpture, players reshape the planet and create a magnificent landscape that lets them climb to great heights. The game’s innovative climbing controls and BUD’s unique abilities challenge players to continually reach for higher ground – but one wrong move and it’s a long way down!
As a participant in the Vote to Play program, Grow Home will be among a selection of games that PlayStation®Plus members can vote on to be part of their Instant Game Collection. Members can cast their vote starting August 13, with results to be announced August 24. The winning game will be available free for PlayStation®Plus members.
