Last year Insomniac Games revealed that they are working on a new AAA VR title called Stormland. This year during the PAX East conference we got a deeper glimpse of what the story and some of the enemies will look like.
For those of you unfamiliar with Stormland, you take on the role of an android gardener on a lush alien planet, but something called ‘The Tempest’ shattered your android body. Now you must journey through an ever-changing cloudscape to augment yourself and save your friends. Explore an expansive world with complete freedom—bound up cliffs, glide across chasms, and fly through the slipstream with velocity.
Detonate explosives, harness electricity, and wield makeshift weapons to overcome titanium sentries and monolithic guardians. You will be able to play Stormland in single-player mode or explore the forgotten ruins together with friends.
In the new trailer you can see more of the jungle landscape that you’ll be moving around in. You also get to see the enemies that you must take down. This includes machine enemies, space ships, and even enemy bosses that look to be a lot bigger than you. As a matter of fact, you can see the one with 4 barriers around it and it looks quite challenging to take down.
Stormland is set to release some time later this year as an Oculus exclusive title for the Rift and the Rift S headsets.
