Yesterday certainly held plenty of surprises for fans of PlayStation VR with Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) releasing a barrage of info on new videogames. As part of its Paris Games Week press conference SIE announced that Sony London Studio is working on a new virtual reality (VR) called Blood & Truth with a short teasing trailer. For those that want to know more about the title a new video has been released interviewing the dev team.
Blood & Truth is the spiritual successor to Sony London Studio’s The London Heist, which featured as part of launch compendium PlayStation VR Worlds. Set in the underground world of London’s organised crime, The London Heist featured a mixture of gameplay mainly revolving around a first-person shooter mechanic, with players involved with car chases and more.
With Blood & Truth this idea has now been expanded with players cast as Ryan Marks, who leaves London for a stint in the army, only to return to find his family has been murdered. Now out for revenge, Marks’ quest will take him through the city’s seedy underbelly, breaking and entering his way into enemy hideouts, casinos and all manner of mayhem.
Players will dual wield pistols and automatic weapons as they gun down enemies as well as finding secret routes and picking locks in order to gain entry to enemy hideouts. As Stuart Whyte, Blood & Truth’s Director explains in the video: “[We wanted to] dial it up to 11, and really just amp up the action.”
In The London Heist players were static for each sequence, so for Blood & Truth they can now move about far more freely, reload, plant explosives while taking enemies out, crawl through vents and loads more, making for a far more interactive and immersive experience.
Exclusive to PlayStation VR, Blood & Truth will require two PlayStation Move motion controllers to play and while no release date has yet been confirmed it’s expected to arrive at some point in 2018.
