Sony Computer Entertainment Europe sent in today a new batch of screenshots of The London Heist, the upcoming virtual reality game for Project Morpheus developed by SCE London Studio.
That looks hella cool
The Getaway is here at last! (Kind Of).
Sony actually calls it the Getaway
Really like the lighting. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Pretty darn good graphics for 60fps (+ their custom interpolation to get it to 120fps which all Morpheus games run on). I'm afraid if I have money I'll end up buy both Rift and Morpheus... unless Morpheus gets PC support and the PC games support it... There are videos out there today too.
Am I the only one that looked at these screens and though "Ew..."? Ok, I get the graphics have to take a nosedive due to VR, but COME ON...this looks like it runs on a PS2... The textures are flat and low-res, there's no detail to ANYTHING...the lighting is very basic. Look at the wheels of the SUV! THIS is VR?? No thanks in that case. http://cdn3.dualshockers.co...
Have you ever played a game called battlefield 4? the vehicle interiors in multiplayer arent any better, and ive never had a problem with immersion. it looks fine.
Nick since you're so...slick, please remind me when did Sony say or promised top notch visuals on Morpheus? Isn't frame rate and limited ghosting the whole point for VR to succeed, at least on console level? And finally, since when are resolution and graphics in general so important?
Really now - bf3 on the 360/ps3 looks better than this, never mind bf4 on the new consoles.. Ultranova - well...it's important that my VR world actually looks realistic and not like an early 2000's arcade game, since the immersion depends on it
Ok Nick then you need to save about $2000 and get yourself a beast PC and an Occulus Rift cause Morpheus is too 'unrealistic' for you, obviously.
Is this going to be a full game? I thought it was just a demo
I think it is a full launch game
Hopefully. :) It looks pretty cool.
It was a demo, and IS going to be a full game likely to be a Morpheus launch title and system seller. A VR FPS version of a Guy Ritchie flick, basically Snatch in VR, i'm all in. Game looks even better in motion. I want this, day1 for me.
Might be a collection VR games/Demos. I know the studio have a few in development.
why do you play as a hand?
It's vr, you're not going to see the character's whole body. Just like most fps games.
We play FPS games as guns... How is this much different?
oh i see i didnt know it was VR
That's the only thing bothering me, at least show the arm, that floating hand is just weird to me lol.
Well its not like we haven't seen dismembered hands before. http://img15.deviantart.net...
Seen enough glitches in games to be used to it!
@MasterCornholio lol, and that was weird as well XD.
It looks like it is just an empty glove, actually. :D
Hell yeah. I'm down for this. As a big fan of PayDay, a getaway type of game like this looks awesome.
This is a video in the link you know. Take another look.
Looks pretty cool indeed
wish they had the resources to create arms for him...
That wouldn't work well because an arm has multiple joints and would just look rigid and stiff unless you have motion capture points on your arm. Using just hands is easier because you're holding a gun all the time so you only need basic movements.
Not like it's been done on every other FPS game there is... He's got a point. Whilst it looks cool, give us an arm ffs. Seriously... I'm excited for that horror VR game Angry Joe played, that sounded cool
@ion53 You completely missed the point I was making. This isn't a typical FPS game, it's VR. The whole point is free motion, being able to move the gun where ever and however you like and unless you have motion points on your arm it would look un-natural.
I really don't see VR becoming a mainstream method on PS4
It would be great though right? Current games implimenting vr capability but if vr is not able to push graphics then its impossible :(
Is it a full game now? I thought it was just a demo, or a short PSN title at most.
If this is what the morpheus is capable of regarding graphical quality then my dreams of playing the next elder scrolls in vr have been well and truly dashed, perhaps the next gen of vr will be more capable and by that time i'll barely be able to see, lol. Ive now come to the the mind set that morpheus has a good chance of being no more than a gimmick and go the same way as move.
Graphics are average. Compare this driving chase scene to the Uncharted 4's chase scene, and it's like night and day. Nice to see Sony is working on some Morpheus games though. I'd like to see what else they have. Is Morpheus going to release next year?
Another weak ps4 game. Smh
The gameplay looks terrible. It's like whether you're shooting a tire or a vehicle, it has no difference. The tire doesn't pop and the vehicle spins out of control. There's one point in the gameplay video where the person kept shooting at the tire only for the vehicle to explode. Or the part where he was putting 20-30 bullets in the guy on the motorcycle before taking him out. This better be pre-pre-pre alpha, because if it actually releases in an even similar state to this, you might as well be throwing your money out the window.
Shoot guy on cycle 12 times and nothing happens. Shoot tire on van and it blows it up in the air.....lol. Where's bugs bunny when you need him? Sony London, all you need to know.
