Crytek’s Robinson: The Journey is coming to PlayStation VR

2 min read


Crytek took to the stage at Sony’s PlayStation Paris Games week to show off its new VR game, Robinson: the Journey – which seems to give off serious Jurassic Park and Portal vibes. There’s not really any information on its story, or what it’s about yet – but it looks rather incredible.

Take a look.

“Go beyond boundaries in Robinson: The Journey, a brand new virtual reality game from Crytek. Harnessing the power of CRYENGINE, Robinson: The Journey will offer players an unparalleled sense of presence in a game world as they assume the role of a young boy who has crash-landed on a mysterious planet. With freedom to explore their surroundings in 360 degrees of detail, players will become pioneers by interacting with the rich ecosystem around them and unearthing incredible secrets at every turn.”

Now I’ve used an earlier version of the PlayStation VR headset – back when it was called Morpheus, and I can’t really believe that the PlayStation VR is capable of these sorts of visuals. That said, there’s nobody quite like Crytek to draw every bit of power from a platform (while delivering a terrible, terrible story with usually shallow gameplay).

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

      I also watched the games last night that are supposedly VR and a little voice inside my head said: “You might want to start saving some money again”

      • Guild

        Heard the same voice.

      The price and the amount of game titles available will decide if I pick it up.
