New Loading Human Video Reveals PlayStation 4 and Project Morpheus Development
For the past few months Loading Human developer Untold Games has been very open with its intention to bring its upcoming virtual reality (VR) compatible adventure title to PlayStation 4 with support for the Project Morpheus head-mounted display (HMD). That said, the developer hasn’t officially confirmed that the title, which is coming to PC with support for the Oculus Rift, will be ported to the console. However a new video released by the team today showcases Untold Games’ work on the console version of the title. Said video can be seen below.
Lasting just under a minute, this behind the scenes look at the development of Loading Human shows the team working on the first chapter of its episodic title for PlayStation 4. The title is shown being loaded up via the system’s menu, with one of the development team then using the PlayStation Move motion controllers to assume control of the title’s protagonist, Prometheus. The PC version of Loading Human also relies on using motion controllers such as the Sixense STEM system to allow players to realistically interact with the world.
Again, Untold Games hasn’t outright confirmed the release of the PlayStation 4 version of Loading Human, but this video certainly seems to suggest that the port is progressing well. The title tasks players with locating a huge energy source to power a machine that will save the life of Promethus’ father, solving puzzles and interacting with other characters as they go. Loading Human was successfully Kickstarted back in 2014, raising $40,078 USD to deliver three episodes. A release date for the first of these episodes is yet to be announced.
Project Morpheus was recently reintroduced at the 2015 Game Developers Conference (GDC) and will be heading to E3 in June. VRFocus will continue to follow both the HMD and Loading Human, reporting back with the latest updates on both.
