Earlier this year Skydance Interactive announced development of two virtual reality (VR) projects, Life VR and Archangel. Since then further details have been released on the latter, the most recent being an exclusive launch window for Sony Interactive Entertainment’s (SIE) PlayStation VR. Today, those eager to jump into a giant mech and blast enemies to smithereens are able to get a better glimpse at what’s to come with a new trailer.
As there’s a little show going on in Los Angeles, California, called the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2017, Skydance Interactive has released the first video for the upcoming shooter, detailing more of the storyline as well as the intense battles that await.
Archangel is set on a world ravaged by natural disasters. Players take on the role of a pilot in the United States Free Forces, a resistance group fighting a tyrannical United States government which has removed all freedoms from its citizens. Stepping into a massive mech, players will take the fight to HUMNX, a private conglomerate that controls what little is left of a ravaged America.
Archangel is scheduled for release in July 2017 for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and PlayStation VR. As yet, the studio hasn’t revealed when the exact launch date will be, and so when the PlayStation VR launch window will begin.
