By now you have probably heard of the new upcoming title called Stormland by Insomniac games and Oculus Studios which will be a new exclusive title for Oculus. While we’ve seen the trailer itself, Oculus has just released the first look of the gameplay footage.
In Stormland, you’re an android gardener on a lush alien planet, but 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 trailer you can see how technology will dictate gameplay. It seems as though your android is equipped with rocket boosters which enables you to travel greater distances. Players will also be able to climb up steep cliffs and make the impossible jumps. You will have access to a variety of arsenal such as stun grenades, machine guns, shields, and more.
The game also looks to be played through smooth locomotion. You will be able to walk, run, and jump across the lands without having to teleport from spot to spot.
Play the game
Oculus has stated that you’ll be able to play the game at this years PAX West taking place on August 31st from 11AM – 9PM PST.
