The Hum on PS4: ‘Chances are really high’ says Dev
Indie developer Thotwise Games has made no secret of the fact that it hopes to bring its upcoming sci-fi horror videogame The Hum to PlayStation 4. Already confirmed for release on PC, the virtual reality (VR) compatible title also hopes to transition to Sony Computer Entertainment’s (SCE) latest console down the line. While the PC version of the title features support for the Oculus Rift VR head-mounted display (HMD), Project Morpheus HMD support is also planned on PlayStation 4. But what are the chances of the port actually happening?
“We are talking about it with people from Sony,” Thotwise Games’ Ariel Arias told VRFocus in an interview that will be published in full later this week. “The chances are really high, since they have a good VR solution on the way and The Hum fits very good with it. There are not many VR focused titles under development yet.”
The Hum is a first-person experience that casts players as the survivor of an alien invasion of earth. Little is known about the title’s mechanics, with the developer keeping many details under wraps. That said, it has teased that players will be granted special abilities. The title is being developed using Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 4. As the developer revealed to VRFocus, the title is likely to see a delay to 2015.
Check back later in the week for the full interview with Arias on The Hum.
