Indie developer Untold Games is still yet to outright confirm that its upcoming virtual reality (VR) compatible adventure title Loading Human will come to PlayStation 4. The team revealed that it was ‘concept approved’ for Sony Computer Entertainment’s (SCE) console earlier in 2014, but has only been able to fully commit to a PC version of the experience with support for the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD) so far. Today the developer has provided a hint that a PlayStation 4 version is also on track.
The hint comes in the form of a new message from Untold Games that sports a picture of the PlayStation Move motion controller, as seen below, along with the message: “Our #Ps4 #move is now ready for some @LoadingHuman Purple Virtual Reality.” Again, this isn’t confirmation that the title will definitely be showing up on PlayStation 4, but it certainly seems as if work on this version of the adventure title is progressing.
Loading Human is a sci-fi first-person experience in which players are cast as Prometheus, a son tasked with retrieving an immense energy source that could save his father. On PC the title is played using motion controllers such as Sixense’s STEM System and the Razer Hydra. Using these controllers players can pick up objects within an environment and handle them in a realistic fashion, such as reading books by holding them up to the user’s eyes.
A possible PlayStation 4 version of Loading Human would aim to support the Project Morpheus HMD. The PC edition of the title is expected to be the first in a series and is looking to launch in February 2015. VRFocus will continue to follow the title, reporting back with any further updates on its development.
