Impulse Gear, the studio behind the stellar PSVR unique Farpoint (2017), introduced immediately that it has been growing a brand new VR recreation which it plans to launch this 12 months.
Following a handful of post-launch updates to Farpoint, we’ve heard little or no from studio Impulse Gear on what’s subsequent. Right now, greater than three and a half years after the launch of Farpoint, the studio confirmed that it’s been in improvement of a brand new VR recreation. And, what’s extra, the sport is anticipated to launch this 12 months! UploadVR first noticed the delicate announcement over on the studio’s weblog.
Given the standard of Farpoint and its progressive assist of PS Purpose, it’s nice to listen to that Impulse Studio might be following the sport with one other VR title, however to date we do not know what it will likely be besides for 2 tiny clues: a glossy trying ‘L’ emblem which hyperlinks to a ‘Decrypted Message’ audio file.Picture courtesy Impulse Gear
The Decrypted Message feels like a garbled alien voice which reads (to the most effective of our listening to):
You having hassle in violence to convey peace… leeches of [unintelligible] [unintelligible]… we understand how. It’s this manner… to the left after which in phrases.
A sci-fi setting appears assured, however going with the minimal hints alone, it’s laborious to say if we’re taking a look at a direct sequel to Farpoint or not.
Our guess is that Impulse Gear’s subsequent recreation won’t be a direct sequel, largely due to the present VR panorama. Farpoint was a PSVR unique title, and whereas Sony lately introduced it’s engaged on a next-gen PSVR headset, the corporate mentioned it wouldn’t are available in 2021. In the meantime, Impulse Gear says its upcoming VR recreation will certainly launch in 2021.
So that implies the studio is both planning to launch a brand new VR recreation on some headset aside from PSVR… or it plans to launch a brand new recreation on the tail-end of the unique PSVR’s lifespan.
In any case, Impulse Gear says it’s going to supply a “full reveal and announcement quickly,” which we’ll be trying ahead to.
