Ever since indie developer Untold Games passed its Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign for Loading Human last year the studio has teased a potential PlayStation 4 version of the title with support for the Project Morpheus virtual reality (VR) head-mounted display (HMD). In the past the developer has confirmed that the videogame is ‘concept approved’ for the console and even posted images of the team working with the PlayStation Move Motion controller, but has never been able to official confirm the port. This month Untold Games has done just that.
Loading Human will indeed be coming to PlayStation 4 with Project Morpheus support. The title was confirmed to VRFocus by the videogame’s new publisher, Maximum Games.. Loading Human is a first-person title in which players are cast as Prometheus, the son of a famous scientist that must locate a massive energy source in order to save his father’s life. The title prides itself on motion control, allowing players to realistically interact with objects in environments.
Of course, Loading Human has already been confirmed for PC and Linux with support for the Oculus Rift HMD. That much was confirmed when the developer raised over $40,000 through Kickstarter. The title is set to be released episodically, with the first instalment hopefully launching in the near future. Three episodes are planned in total. Just when the title will arrive on PlayStation 4 is unclear, although it will likely be dependent on the release of Project Morpheus itself.
Plenty more announcements on Project Morpheus are expected at E3 this week. VRFocus is at the event to bring you all of the latest updates on the HMD and its compatible videogames, as well as any other VR technology. Stay tuned throughout the week for updates, hands-on impressions and interviews.
