During Sony Interactive Entertainment’s (SIE) Paris Games Week (PGW) 2017 press conference the company showcased a sizzle reel full of upcoming PlayStation VR titles. During the trailer a new videogame was shown for a brief few seconds which featured dinosaur looking creatures on an arid desert world, Eden Tomorrow. Now VRFocus has a few more details to for you to mull over.
Eden Tomorrow is the work of German developer Soulpix, challenging players to survive in a hostile alien world filled with giant creatures, some of which appear more hostile than others. To accompany the announcement the studio has now released a new trailer although it doesn’t exactly detail any more of the actual videogame, merely revealing a launch window of Spring 2018.
Eden Tomorrow isn’t actually a new title as it first appeared back in 2015 during Gamescom in Germany, simply called EDEN. Originally EDEN allowed players to control three separate characters, a bloke, and robotic dog and a flying drone, each of which has its own specific attributes to help the group survive the harsh environment.
In the latest trailer this still seems to be partially the case as the drone and male character both featured. However there was no sign of the players four legged companion. Of course over the last couple of years plans may have changed, just like the title, with Soulpix streamlining the experience ready for release.
At the time VRFocus spoke with Soulpix’s owner Frank Sennholz about the title, discussing the story and how the gameplay mechanics worked. We also previewed the early title, generally being fairly impressed with the experience, saying: “even this early on, this is a title that should already be on any VR fan’s radar.” Eden Tomorrow may have dropped of most people’s radar with the lack of info released by Soulpix since then, but that’s not going to be an issue for much longer.
As VRFocus learns more about Eden Tomorrow now that it’s resurfaced after two years in the wilderness, what’s changed, if its PlayStation VR exclusive (it was originally an Oculus Rift experience) and more we’ll let you know.
