Upcoming virtual reality (VR) compatible horror title The Hum is currently preparing for a showcase at Gamescom in August 2014. The title has enjoyed a successful introduction to the videogame community so far, having been approved on Steam Greenlight in the space of just over two weeks. Now it looks as if it could also be heading to the PlayStation 4 later down the line once development has progressed.
An FAQ on The Hum‘s official website reveals as much. One questions asks if the experience is being considered for consoles, to which the developer answers: “Yep it is. We are thinking in go to PS4, but before that, we should have a good version of the game, and go across the early access / beta stages.”
It wasn’t confirmed if the PlayStation 4 version would support the Project Morpheus VR headset as the PC does the Oculus Rift, though the possible console port is also listed on developer Ariel Arias’ LinkedIn profile page. The title is being developed with Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 4, which recently updated to include support for both the PlayStation 4 as well as Project Morpheus so a port is certainly possible.
The Hum is a first-person horror experience that casts players as a survivor of an alien invasion of Earth that has been hidden in a barn for three months since the event. The player starts to discover new abilities as they explore the new outside world, avoiding enemies. The title is planned to launch on PC and Mac in the final quarter of 2014, with a Linux version also planned. VRFocus will continue to follow the title’s progress and report back with any more updates.
