Stormland

A new trailer surfaced today ahead of PAX East 2019 for the Insomniac Games developed VR title, Stormland.

Stormland is currently only in development for the Oculus Rift. The chances of it being released for other platforms, like the Vive or PlayStation VR are pretty slim since it's being published by Oculus Studios. Of course, it's not particularly difficult to get Rift "exclusive" games working on the Vive thanks to Revive, so maybe that's a moot point.

Stormland places you in the robotic shoes of an android as they explore a giant world in search of their friends. You'll have "complete freedom" to travel around, climb up cliffs, glide across massive chasms, and more. You will be able to make use of makeshift weapons against sentries and "monolithic guardians." You can also detonate explosives and harness electricity as part of your arsenal.

Insomniac Games recently released the well received Spider-Man on PS4, so I assume they have that whole fast-paced movement thing down to a science already.

  • Move with velocity. Explore the open world with exhilarating freedom. Fly through the slipstream, kick up a cloud ramp, launch up to a cliff, and glide back down with all-new Touch mechanics.
  • Discover a changing otherworld. The Tempest rearranges the Stormland to reveal new challenges—and new playgrounds of movement, combat, and scavenging. Your Satellite watches from above to guide you to the best upgrades.
  • Join a community of androids. Weather the storm together. Link up to the satellite, join up for Stormland raids, and collaborate on shared missions for the benefit of android gardeners everywhere.
  • Fight with freeform style. Equip makeshift weapons to overcome the Tempest’s army of synthetic troops and mutated creatures. Augment your android abilities to cloak your body, manifest shields, and harness electricity. Find new tech, build yourself up, and discover just how far you can push past the limits of your design.
