During the recent announcement of PlayStation VR2 at CES, one of the titles announced for the device was an all new title set in the Horizon universe, Horizon Call of the Mountain.
Developed by newly acquired studio Firesprite Games along side oversight from series creator Guerrilla Games, Horizon Call of the Mountain gives players control of an unnamed protagonist to experience the world. Players will meet characters from the series, including series protagonist Aloy, and experience tribe life in this post-post apocalypse life.
Read the statement from the PlayStation Blog:
“Created for PlayStation VR2, this unique experience has been designed to push hardware technology, innovation, and gameplay. The stunning visuals and brand-new PS VR2 Sense controllers give a new meaning to being fully immersed into the world of Horizon.”PlayStation Blog
This title is a big deal, as major PlayStation first party franchises haven’t been a factor in the current model of PSVR. It will be interesting to see how this game does and if the experience will encourage other developers to find unique ways to bring more popular worlds to the headset.
