There’s only hours to go until the launch of PlayStation VR with some retailers holding midnight launches, and Sony Square NYC doing the same. If you’re waiting for your order to be delivered then there’s lots of new trailers to look over to pass the time. Super Stardust Ultra VR has seen a new trailer arrive and so has Supermassive Games’ Until Dawn: Rush of Blood.
The trailer begins with a short cinematic with a guy saying: “Step right up my friend and welcome to the ride of your life”. From here on out things then start to get very intense as the rollercoaster players sit in for the videogame heads into the darkness, brief flashes of the horrors that wait pop up, maniacal looking enemies dressed as clowns appear, and strange oversized dolls with missing eyes sit at either side of the track watching as the cart rolls by.
Until Dawn: Rush of Blood is a virtual reality (VR) take on the studios previous title for PlayStation 4 Until Dawn. The title is pure heart pounding horror with a creepy circus theme. To get round some of the issues with locomotion in VR the developer puts players on a rollercoaster in a fairground ride cart, thus reducing or negating simulator sickness plaguing some VR experiences. All that’s needed are some trusty weapons and a good aim to see you through.
