At Sony’s Consumer Electronics Show press conference, the firm revealed the vision of futuristic generation PSVR2 from its PlayStation department and the new add-on to the existing pre-eminent post-apocalyptic game Horizon series called Horizon: Call of the mountain.
The game is being developed solely for the next-gen Virtual reality. Horizon call of the mountain teaser released a few hours back on the PlayStation official YouTube channel is an absolute gem of the first water; peculiarly, the last clip of the teaser appeared to be one of the most incredible scenes ever created in Horizon history, that particular clips props up the exquisite finish.
Call of the mountain is a new adventure by a joint venture of Guerrilla and Firesprite, the Liverpool-based gaming studio chiefly focused on VR games and recently acquired by the Goliath Sony for an undisclosed sum back in September 2021.
Sony acquired Firesprite mainly because for the future development of VR games; Horizon might be the earliest step for the significant journey company, Horizon: Call of the mountain would be an original game explicitly developed for yet-to-be-unveiled PSVR 2, as per the blog post from PlayStation says it will allow players “to go deeper in the world of Horizon.” PlayStation executive Ryan revealed Sony’s forthcoming device; however, it seems Ryan hasn’t been allowed to talk about many details on PlayStation VR2 as he hasn’t shown the release date or any critical conceptualization of the device. But he did unveil a few of the features that the device will come equipped with eye-tracking, 4K HDR, and foveated rendering, which improves rendering while being less taxing on the hardware.
The PSVR 2 could also have a built-in motor underlying the headset that offers the wearer physical feedback. Similarly, we haven’t learned about Horizon: Call of the mountain. Nevertheless, the YouTube description of the game has shared some extra perceptions about the game, not any crucial ones. Still, the game would use a new level of dousing in a distinctive experience, designed to push hardware technology, innovation, and gameplay.”
While reveals are scanty, the upcoming next-generation Horizon will more likely adopt the features announced for Sony’s PSVR 2. Firesprite might be preparing up for multiple projects; at least one of those is a VR game set in Guerrilla’s Horizon universe. The announcement concurred with the forthcoming release of Horizon: Forbidden West coming to PS4 and PS5 in a few months.
