Crytek announces Robinson: The Journey for Oculus Rift

PSVR temporary exclusive Robinson: The Journey is now coming to the Oculus Rift

Crytek has announced that Robinson: The Journey, their sci-fi VR adventure title, will be coming to the Oculus Rift next month.


Robinson: The Journey has you playing as Robin, a boy that gets stranded on a strange alien planet, where you need to survive the various dangers on the planet, with HIGS - your AI unit and a baby T-Rex that will help you. You'll need to look for survivors and unlock the mysteries of the extrasolar planet.

Lead 3D Artist on Robinson: The Journey, Tom Deerberg, explained why VR works in the game so well: "Today, VR represents the next logical step in the evolution of immersive game worlds. Just as the jump from 2D to 3D once gave players a more authentic impression of being "in the game," VR turns what we're used to experiencing on a flat screen into something much more enveloping. Now, the sense of scale is inherent. You feel physically present in the game space, and those planets hanging on the horizon serve to underscore the vastness of your surroundings like never before. You'll tilt your head to take in the full grandeur of a dinosaur or pull back as you assess the danger of a chasm below - and it all feels boundless in an entirely new way".
