Today the PlayStation Blog has laid out details on the upcoming Fracked, a PSVR title that promises shooting and skiing.
This PlayStation Blog post about Fracked lays down some important info for all the thrill junkies out there and refers to gameplay as “fast, exhilarating, and accessible,” adding that:
Skiing, running, climbing, base jumping and ziplining are all possible and all happen seamlessly and fluidly. No on-rails gameplay and cinematic cutscenes here, everything is 1:1 and driven by the player’s controls, movements, and actions. Combat is unconstrained too, combining free movement for outflanking foes with 1:1 grabbable cover and tactile weapon reloading.
While that does detail some of the action you can expect, it doesn’t mention story or give a why. While there is information given, it’s in the form of a brief mention that reads:
In Fracked, we’ve cast the player as a hero thrown into the fight. Stuck deep inside a mountain fracking facility the region has been taken over by an army of gun-wielding, interdimensional maniacs known as (you guessed it) the Fracked! As the last hope for the world, you must take them down before it is all too late.
There isn’t a set date for when you can get your hands on (get it? Because VR?) Fracked aside from a promise of “this summer,” but you can keep an eye out with us here on Twinfinite and we’ll update you with any new information.
With the next iteration of the PSVR having recently been teased by Sony, here are 6 improvements we believe it will need.
