Insomniac Games and Oculus will soon be making available their new virtual reality single player adventure Stromland. During this week’s PAX West 2018 conference the development teams opened up a demo to the public for a hands on chance to check out the new open world game for the first time. If you are interested in learning more about the Stromland VR adventure check out the 20 minute gameplay trailer embedded below.
Dutch YouTubers Cas and Chary were able to capture footage of their experience and have published their hands on adventure for our viewing pleasure. “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.”
Stormland will be launching on the oculus Rift sometime during 2019, features include the ability to :
– 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.
