  • Insomniac Reveals New PAX East Trailer for Stormland

    Insomniac Reveals New PAX East Trailer for 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.

    If these new reports are to be believed, these first-party...
