Earlier this week during E3 2014 VRFocus revealed that Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) had been developing companion and social smartphone and tablet apps for two titles on its Project Morpheus virtual reality (VR) headset on PlayStation 4. Those titles were the SCE London Studio’s tech demos Street Luge and The Deep. Now VRFocus has secured the first screenshots of those apps, which are posted below.
A total of eight screenshots taken directly from the apps themselves can be seen. Two of them showcase a simple leaderboard app for Street Luge, one of two new tech demos that SCE brought to E3 2014. The experience tasks players with speeding down a busy road on a luge, dodging traffic and gaining speed by sliding under larger vehicles. The leaderboard app lists both the user’s time and the gap between their result and the current best time.
More complex is the app for The Deep, the underwater tech demo the debuted alongside Project Morpheus at the 2014 Game Developers Conference. As can be seen in the screenshots, the app user controls a small drone that travels alongside the Project Morpheus user as the descend further into the ocean depths. App players can salvage parts that they find in the environment, though it is not yet clear what this exactly achieves. A microphone symbol also appears on the app, though it’s not clear what this relates to.
It’s still not clear if The Deep and Street Luge will see a release alongside the consumer version of Project Morpheus, although these apps certainly have us hoping that they see some form of release. VRFocus will continue to follow the development of Project Morpheus and its supported software, bringing you the latest.
