Developer Supermassive Games is no stranger to the PS4 and to Sony Interactive Entertainment’s VR set-up, with the Until Dawn franchise. The British team is bringing two, yes two, titles to the virtual reality realm and both of them were given trailers during tonight’s E3 press conference. Both The Inpatient and Bravo Team are quite different games but each will be under the Supermassive banner.
Horror is where this studio found its success and their sticking with that with their first game. The Inpatient features not stereotypical teens but a bizarre hospital where nothing feels right. The hallways, nurses, doctors, and everything else is super creepy. Also judging by the 50s aesthetic and soundtrack, you’re probably going to get not so great treatment in this facility. The trailer is slowly being wheeled around below:
Bravo Team looks more like a traditional first-person shooter, although this time in VR. All the usual stuff was there like assault rifles, cover based combat, and squad-mates all decked out in military gear. The setting seems to be somewhere in Eastern Europe, possibly Russia and the city seems to be under siege by terrorist threats. There’s a bit of radio chatter at the end hinting that their might be some sort of audio element or maybe even multiplayer element to the game. You can find the trailer’s twenty in the video underneath:
As a big fan of both Supermassive’s Until Dawn and the VR expansion, Rush of Blood, I’m excited about both these offerings. While The Inpatient is more up my alley with the whole psychological horror in a more archetypal setting (something the studio knows a lot about) but I’m sure they’re going to give the same level of commitment and detail to Bravo Team. Unfortunately not much information was released about either game (including any kind of release date) but we’ll be there once we find out more information.
