After Enhance Games revealed it was working on Rez Infinite at the PlayStation Experience in December 2015, the studio released a new trailer with a very brief glimpse of some new content called Area X. Enhance Games President and CEO Tetsuya Mizuguchi then mentioned it in a PlayStation.Blog post in March with only a single image of concept art to go by. Now Mizuguchi has unveiled the mysterious new area with a trailer.
Taking to PlayStation.Blog again the CEO states that Area X is a new experimental level, saying: “Like classic Rez, Area X is a designed to be a focused, replayable experience, that uses simple shooting mechanics as a means to induce “synesthesia.”
“But other than that basic foundation, the team and I decided to throw away the rest of the formula and start fresh, both in terms of aesthetics and gameplay, building Area X through experimentation and iteration.” Adding: “Our goal was to create something that evoked the same excitement as Rez, but at the same time, something that felt unique. Something new. Something special all its own.”
Take a look at the video below and see what you think. Rez Infinite will be a launch title for the PlayStation VR head-mounted display (HMD) on 13th October, and as further details are released VRFocus will bring you the latest updates.
