Insomniac Games, famous for Sunset Overdrive and Rachet and Clank are teaming up with Oculus Studios to bring a new exploratory game called Stormland to VR! This comes after the E3 announcement earlier this week.
This open-world VR game will take the player on an adventure as you’re a robot traversing over cliffs, through the sky, and against some potentially nasty opponents; all to save your friends.
“The Tempest shattered your android body. Now you must journey through an ever-changing cloudscape to augment yourself and save your friends. Explore an expansive world with complete freedom—bound up cliffs, glide across chasms, and fly through the slipstream with velocity. Detonate explosives, harness electricity, and wield makeshift weapons to overcome titanium sentries and monolithic guardians. Play single-player, or explore forgotten ruins together.
It’s time to reclaim your world.”
A few key elements for this VR game include:
- Moving with velocity – “Explore the open world with exhilarating freedom. Fly through the slipstream, kick up a cloud ramp, launch up to a cliff, and glide back down with all-new Touch mechanics.”
- Discover a changing otherworld – “The Tempest rearranges the Stormland to reveal new challenges—and new playgrounds of movement, combat, and scavenging. Your Satellite watches from above to guide you to the best upgrades.”
- Join a community of androids – “Weather the storm together. Link up to the satellite, join up for Stormland raids, and collaborate on shared missions for the benefit of android gardeners everywhere.”
- Fight with freeform style – “Equip makeshift weapons to overcome the Tempest’s army of synthetic troops and mutated creatures. Augment your android abilities to cloak your body, manifest shields, and harness electricity. Find new tech, build yourself up, and discover just how far you can push past the limits of your design.”
This call comes directly from the official Stormland website, where you can keep tabs on the development and launch of the game into the 2019 release window.
Meanwhile, we’ll keep you updated as Stormland gets an official release.
