Supermassive Gets Into VR With Until Dawn: Rush Of Blood

Sony has announced that the creators of Until Dawn are working on a new horror game for PlayStation VR.

The game is called Until Dawn: Rush Of Blood, and no other information was shared other than that Supermassive is developing it and it's being made exclusively for PlayStation VR. A compilation trailer of upcoming PlayStation VR games showed off a few snippets from the game, including some horrific jump scares and a roller coaster ride, which – along with the logo – suggest it will take place inside some kind of macabre carnival. Until Dawn originally started as a first-person Move game, so Rush of Blood may serve as a return to the developer's original vision for the series.

New Horizon Zero Dawn Footage Is Thunderous

Horizon was one of the breakout titles from E3, and thankfully the game looks better than ever in Sony’s newest demo.

Hermen Hulst from Guerrilla Games showed off Horizon: Zero Dawn during Sony’s Paris Games Week press conference. Set on Earth nearly a thousand years into the future, Horizon explores a world ruled by amazing machines that look a lot like the great beasts that once ruled our world billions of years ago. Players control Aloy, a hunter and archer who progresses through a post-apocalyptic land.

Player will have to be strategic when taking down these foes. In the demo, we watched Aloy track some beasts across a river. She needs to collect canisters from the backs of a couple of wild machines. Each machine is a part of an ecology and features its own unique resources that Aloy can use to build new weapons, outfits, and gadgets.

Boundless Looks Like A Mythical Minecraft With Hammers

about X hours ago from

Today at Paris Games Show, Sony showed off a new open-world game that should pique the interest of Minecraft fans.

Sony revealed a short gameplay video of Boundless, a newly announced open-world game that appears to give the blocky worlds of Minecraft a mythical makeover. In the video, the player walked around with a giant hammer (seen in the lower right-hand corner of the image above) while checking out weird alien creatures and dimension-hopping portals. The jagged landscapes suggest the game will be voxel-based, but the environments, lighting, and character models are a clear step up from Minecraft.

Boundless is a PlayStation exclusive, and is scheduled for a 2016 release. We'll bring you more about the game, as well as the trailer, as soon as it's available.
