Crytek is “very excited about the game”.
PS4 console exclusive Robinson: The Journey is one of the more intriguing VR titles to arrive in the coming year and it’s even more interesting since it will be out on PlayStation VR/PS4.
Speaking to Press A 2 Join, executive producer Elijah Freeman was asked about the game itself. “With Robinson, we want to use the level of presence that VR offers to really make the players feel like they’re located in a different world.
“This means the freedom to explore a vast environment in 360 degrees of detail and to interact with their surroundings in fresh ways. Exploration is firmly at the heart of Robinson, and we’re using the power of CRYENGINE to ensure the sights and sounds all contribute to the sense that players have crash-landed on a mysterious planet and are discovering something amazing for the first time. We can’t say too much more at this point, but we’re certainly very excited about the game and we’ve been glad to hear others feel the same way.”
It will be interesting to see what kind of gameplay concept the developers have in store but given the dinosaur setting and a rich, detailed world, Robinson: The Journey could be one of the standout VR titles of 2016. Robinson: The Journey will be out later this year for PS4, PlayStation VR and PC.
