It’s been a while since we last saw anything on the upcoming Disaster Report 4 Plus: Summer Memories but at the Tokyo Game Show 2018 developer Granzella have showcased a new trailer. In it, viewers get a chance to see gameplay, cutscenes and even a short look at the virtual reality (VR) supported gameplay along with a number of the videogame’s environments, NPCs and dangers that await in the now ruined city.
For those unaware, Disaster Report 4 Plus: Summer Memories takes place in a city that has recently been hit by a major earthquake. Stepping into the shoes of someone who has only just arrived in the city to find work, players must now try to escape from the collapsing city by any means. Players will need to explore the area, meet other people trying to survive and find resources to aid them in their mission. All of this happens while being wary of aftershocks and other disasters that could see buildings toppling down and crashing to the player to death.
While the relaxing music featured in this new trailer may give off a sense of safety, don’t be mistaken. We see a number of different situations unfold in the trailer including exploring areas full of NPCs who can be spoken to, empty streets full of rubble and even two aftershocks that cause a bridge to fall and nearly take the place out with it. On top of this, there are fires, conversations with memorable characters and even a moment showing the players navigating a subway in first-person, which is likely a VR section.
The trailer ends by revealing the release date for the title which has been announced to be October 25th, 2018 in Japan. Currently there is no Western release of the title planned but fingers crossed it happens in the near future. As previously reported, the title does feature PlayStation VR support and can be played in the first-person perspective and you can see it in action here.
