Crytek’s interest in virtual reality (VR) development kicked-up a notch at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), Los Angeles, earlier this month with the reveal of yet another technical demo. Back to Dinosaur Island 2 was a beautiful depiction of a prehistoric world, and Crytek have now revealed a small batch of screenshots for those not able to experience the demo themselves.
This third production, following the original reveal a Gamescom, Cologne, last year and Back to Dinosaur Island at the Game Developers Conference (GDC), San Francisco, back in March, was the first to provide the player with genuine interactivity. No longer is the user limited to walking or a static experience with minor reactionary experiences, Back to Dinosaur Island 2 features genuine pace-setting on behalf of the player.
Back to Dinosaur Island and it’s successor will pave the way for the recently revealed Robinson: The Journey. At E3, VRFocus was informed that both of these experiences are essentially test-runs for the type of gameplay mechanics that will be included in Robinson: The Journey. VRFocus got hands-on with Back to Dinosaur Island 2 at E3 and will bring you a preview of the experience in the near future.
