PlayStation VR owners will now know what it is like to pilot a six-story-high giant war machine as the latest title from Skydance Interactive, Archangel, is launching today on the PlayStation VR.
Archangel is set in a post-apocalyptic future, where players join the United States from Forces under the codename ‘Guardian’ to lead the resistance against the sinister corporation known as HUMNX, a tyrannical conglomerate that rules what remains of America with an iron fist. Players are given access to a variety of high-powered weaponry to fight the forces of HUMNX and protect their allies, including giant mechanical war machines.
“How better to introduce players to Skydance Interactive’s vision for the future of virtual reality gaming than to give them hands-on control of a giant mech in a way that no other medium can deliver,” said Peter Akemann, President of Skydance Interactive. “Now is the time to join the resistance, protect your friends and countrymen, and become the beacon of hope that America needs – the Archangel!”
The title has already received praise from critics after its appearance at E3, gathering several ‘Best VR Game at E3’ awards from publications such as MMOGames and Geek Citadel. Archangel is due to be released on HTC Vive and Oculus Rift later in the year, an a location-based version is also planned to be available in selected IMAX VR Centres from August, 2017.
Archangel is available now from the PlayStation Store for $39.99. A launch trailer is available to view below.
