Supermassive Games are best known for their work on Until Dawn. VR owners are likely familiar with their beloved spinoff, Rush of Blood. They’ve always had a penchant for being in touch with new technologies. Bolstering this is their renowned use of the Decima Engine to portray their games with great graphics. Many players of Horizon: Zero Dawn will know this as it was rendered in the same engine and looks great. It’s a fair assumption that Supermassive Games must be working their butts of right now, with three new titles arriving in just six months.
The Inpatient Is A VR Prequel To Until Dawn
The Inpatient is set in Blackwood Mental Asylum, found in ruins during the Until Dawn story. The prequel will explore the outbreak of the Wendigo curse on the mountain. Of course, Supermassive Games are sticking to what they do best – horror. What makes The Inpatient one to watch is the fact that Supermassive Games have quickly become known for leveraging existing tech to its maximum potential. With VR still in its infancy it will be interesting to see what they clever tricks they’ll have up their sleeve. Check out the below video for the latest footage, explaining a little about the story players can expect. The Inpatient will be with us on November 22nd
The First Tactical VR Co-op Is Here In The Form Of Bravo Team
Bravo Team is the furthest departure, mechanically, for Supermassive Games, since their inception. Touted as a tactical co-op squad based shooter, we should expect more than just a simple shooter. As a VR title, the official page explains how we now have added depth to cover based shooting. Is it a smarter move to pop out above cover or curl around it?
Players will have to think out a plan of attack to strike first and strike hard. We are confident in Supermassive Games in delivering a great experience. Bravo Team will be compatible with the Aim Controller, like Farpoint. Yet, we hope that it will be a less disappointing experience in the wake of strategy based gameplay. We saw very little from this year’s E3 for the game. In case you need a refresher, here’s Bravo Team’s reveal trailer. Coming in hot the heels of The Inpatient, Bravo Team will be available from December 6th
Supermassive Games Remain At The Frontier Of Gaming Tech With Hidden Agenda
Just recently, we reported on PlayStation’s new tech, available for all – PlayLink. The PlayStation Store only currently list four games for PlayLink. Of course, one of them is Hidden Agenda, Supermassive Games’ detective thriller title. Continuing their trend of being at the forefront of new gaming tech, Hidden Agenda will sync with up to five player’s phones. They will then receive personal objectives in the form a hidden agenda.
Working together or against one another, players will get through a branching story. Given Supermassive Games’ obvious talent at storytelling and their great use of the Decima Engine so for, we’re convinced Hidden Agenda is not one you’ll want to miss. Check out the video below for a full explanation of how thing work from the devs themselves. Hidden Agenda is the soonest to arrive on October 25th
