Hot Garbage (or Drainy Drains in good French), the first extension of Journey To The Savage Planet, is available in contactless delivery in all good digital dairy stores. We played it on PS4 and we tell you everything we know today.
During confinement, what could be better than a nice invitation to travel? That's what Hot garbage, the DLC of Journey To The Savage Planet, offers us. The full game had won us over at the start of the year, but it was another time. What will happen today with this additional level, available for the modest sum of € 8? This is what we will see.
The hot trash
Since its release, Journey To The Savage Planet was enhanced with a tasty but classic "old party less" mode, via a free update. This time, it's a bigger piece, since a whole plant is going to be added to the universe. Appointed DL-C1
DL-C1 is a tropical paradise world that Kindred Aerospace, the fourth best space exploration company, has just acquired. As a good loyal employee and kamikaze, it is you who will come back to the heavy task of investigating the pollution problems encountered on DL-C1. Kindred wants to make it a glove vacation center for withdrawals, as if Florida covered our entire beautiful plant. But very quickly, you will realize that a competing company is using DL-C1 to dump all its radioactive and toxic waste! It will therefore be us to stop this ecological disaster while conducting the investigation to bring down our competitors!
Quite a program, of course, always served by these incredible dubbing qubcois cut with a knife, with a new sweet voice of male and mean AI, but also new false advertisements to be discovered. Humor is always omnipresent and very often hits the bull's eye. Clearly, above, we loved finding all the shift of Journey To the Savage Planet. In terms of playability, however, we were a little less enchanted: the bestiary already, which only evolves very little and offers more or less the same critters as on AR-Y-26, including bird-globes. And if to fight you will now have access to automatic aiming, the other new gadgets available ranged from poor to passable.
If being able to run infinity should relieve more than one, walking underwater does nothing to change the schmilblick and the jet-pack is fun, but its use is rather hazardous and will require a lot of time to adapt and not bad in anticipation so as not to end up like a pancake on the ground. In fact, to recharge it, there is only one solution: go through one of these kinds of energy rings that boost the reactors in your survival suit. You will not be able to use it once back in the basic game!
Also, the progression mechanism, already quite linear in the original game, where you have to unlock an improvement via a secondary quest to access the rest of the main adventure, is even more so here. It's a shame, because if we have a good laugh, we come out of Hot garbage a little less enchanting than with the main game.
