BUD is back!
Grow Up, the sequel to Grow Home, was officially announced at E3 this year. Ubisoft has stated that the game will be coming to the PS4, Xbox One, and PC digitally this August. You can check out the new trailer down below.
‘In Grow Up, players must guide little robot BUD around an entire alien world as he embarks on a dizzying mission that will see him leaping, rolling, bouncing and flying his way through a stunning and virtually boundless new open world.
This new adventure comes from a small team at Reflections, a Ubisoft studio, who experimented with procedural animation and ended up creating a cute creature named BUD. While out exploring the galaxy, BUD’s parental spaceship MOM falls to pieces as an unfortunate lunar accident sends her all over the place. Now her ship parts are scattered far and wide across an alien planet so rich in flora and fauna, it would make even the most jaded galactic gardener’s head spin. It’s up to BUD to collect all the parts and get them back to the moon, so he can rebuild MOM and reunite with her once again.’
This time around, BUD will be given a whole new planet to explore, along with a variety of new abilities at his disposal. While Grow Home was held back by some unwieldy controls, the game was still charming enough to keep players sticking around to the end, so it’s great to see this whimsical game getting a followup later this year.
Grow Up will be released for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC this August.
