Open-World VR Game Stormland Announced By Insomniac Games For Oculus
Insomniac Games announced an ambitious VR game called Stormland, which will release for the Oculus Rift sometime next year.
What will set Stormland apart from other VR games is its scope. The game will be an open-world game featuring both single and multiplayer modes. Features from other Insomniac's VR games will also be in.
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.
- Move 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
A trailer has also been released, and you can find it below.
Stormland looks like the game that can bring VR gaming to new heights, showing how the technology can be used for non-linear titles. More information on the game and its features will be coming soon, so stay tuned for all the latest news.
