Sony Computer Entertainment’s (SCE) London Studio has quickly positioned itself as one of the premiere developers working with the company’s Project Morpheus virtual reality (VR) headset for PlayStation 4. The company debuted its impressive tech demo, The Deep, along with the device’s reveal at the 2014 Game Developer’s Conference and revealed a brand new experience for the device at this week’s E3 named Street Luge. But the new demo won’t be replacing The Deep as a showcase for the device. In fact the developer is bringing an updated version of it to E3.
The Deep asks players to slip on the Project Morpheus and descend into the depths of the ocean. Standing in a cage, players can look around using the headset’s positional tracking, observing aquatic wildlife and more. The DualShock 4 is also used, acting as a flair gun that is also tracked in the player’s hand. Towards the end of a demo, a shark starts circling the player before things start to get out of hand.
Just what the new version entails is unclear right now, but VRFocus will keep you updated on the improvements. Earlier this year SCE London head David Ranyard told VRFocus that it was experimenting with Project Morpheus to find out what works with the device and what doesn’t. The studio is yet to reveal if any of the demos it has shown off could develop into full videogames. VRFocus will continue to follow the developer’s progress going forward, bringing you the latest.
