Edge of Nowhere developer Insomniac Games has released a new launch trailer teasing the arctic adventures that await Oculus Rift users.
Published by OculusÂ Studios and set to launch Monday, June 6th, Edge of NowhereÂ is a hotly anticipated Rift game that will launch as an exclusive to the Oculus Store. The developers tease the following:
- Scale vast walls of ice and explore the treacherous mountains of Antarctica
- Use weapons and your wits to survive the uncanny horrors that haunt dark caverns.
- Cling to your sanity in a surreal world where nothing is as it seems.
- Developed specifically for VR, experience a huge sense of scale, from vertigo inducing cliffs to towering giants
The game is somewhat unusual in that it’s a VR game but built as a third-person experience. Although first-person experiences are among the first to come to mind for VR, we’ve seen a number of functional and enjoyable VR games, like Lucky’s Tale, builtÂ around a third-person vantage point.
Edge of Nowhere is built for use of the Xbox One gamepad which is bundled with the Rift. Insomniac Games is also in development of The Unspoken, which is indeed first-person and built for Oculus’ forthcoming ‘Touch’ VR controllers.
