The first virtual reality game to be made by developer Insomniac – Edge of Nowhere – will be hitting the Oculus Rift on June 6, as shown in new launch trailer posted recently by the developer. You can watch the trailer above.
Edge of Nowhere is a third-person action-adventure set in the Antarctic mountains, and is described as an “unsettling psychological thriller” by Insomniac (via. Eurogamer). Specifically designed for VR, the game involves a “huge sense of scale”, and has players scaling towering cliffs and wading through alien retreats in an environment where nothing is certain.
Edge of Nowhere is the first of three Insomniac games planned for the Oculus Rift. Feral Rites is an “exploration brawler” inspired by Zelda: Ocarina of Time and God of War, whilst magical-duelling title The Unspoken sees players engaged in heated PvP spellcasting. All three games will be exclusive to the Oculus, and are planned for release this year. A demo of Feral Rites will be playable at this year’s E3.
Insomniac are known for their previous work on the Ratchet and Clank series, as well as open-world shooter Sunset Overdrive. For more information, you can check out Insomniac’s official site here.
