Project Morpheus Castle Demo Returns for E3

Yesterday Sony Computer Entertainment’s (SCE) E3 press conference played host to the reveal of two new experiences for the company’s Project Morpheus virtual reality (VR) headset on PlayStation 4. Not only that but the company also revealed a line up of titles such as EVE: Valkyrie and The Deep that would also be playable with the device on the show floor. However the conference didn’t confirm everything there was to see at SCE’s booth this week.


VRFocus can confirmed that The Castle, a tech demo that was revealed with the headset itself in March 2014 and more recently seen being worn by Jimmy Fallon on TV, is once again playable for show attendees. The demo allows players to use two PlayStation Move motion controllers either to fire a crossbow weapon or fight hand-to-hand. After experimenting with the controls, a dragon soon appears to bring the demo to a climatic end.

Project Morpheus is yet to receive an firm release date from SCE. The title’s E3 presence looks to be much like it was at the 2014 Game Developers Conference where it was revealed. A line of devices are available for attendees to sample, with the supported demos changing from day to day. VRFocus will continue to follow the development of the Project Morpheus headset, bringing you all the latest.
