Sony London Studio released its action blockbuster Blood & Truth a couple of months ago for PlayStation VR, to near-universal acclaim. If you happen to own the headset and have yet to buy the virtual reality (VR) title then you’re in luck, tomorrow a free demo will be arriving.
The demo will feature the first mission from Blood & Truth, giving players enough of a sample to tempt them into purchasing. Compatible with two PlayStation Move controllers (recommended) or a DualShock 4 controller, the first mission gives a good sense of the action movie-style the studio was aiming to deliver. Players are tasked with infiltrating an enemy compound, engaging in an intense rooftop shootout before taking part in a car chase.
Inspired by London Studio’s PlayStation VR Worlds mini-game The London Heist, Blood & Truth is set in the seedy underbelly of London’s criminal underworld. Players take the role of former Special Forces soldier Ryan Marks who returns to find his family has become involved with a ruthless syndicate and he needs to save them.
Blood & Truth was that good VRFocus gave the videogame a full five star review, commenting: “While you don’t have the freedom of Borderlands 2 VR for example, with Blood & Truth you have a far more focused videogame that knows what it wants to achieve, and that’s put a smile on your face. From start to finish Blood & Truth is one hell of a ride, a finely choreographed John Woo movie that’s all about sheer entertainment.”
It seems the studio also has another surprise in store this month, preparing a new update due to arrive on 25th July that includes some fun post-game extras.
At present Blood & Truth is the biggest exclusive PlayStation VR release of 2019 but there’s plenty more to come, with Iron Man VR and Concrete Genie expected at some point later this year. VRFocus will continue its coverage of PlayStation VR and Sony London Studio, reporting back with the latest updates and announcements.
