Two New VR Games Take Center Stage During Insomniac’s Media Event

Insomniac has been a busy studio, lately.  Their movie Ratchet & Clank is about to hit theaters, they just released the game version on PS4, oh and they have 4 games coming out this year!  That’s right, the independently owned studio is releasing not the standard 1-2 games.  No, instead they have 4 in the pipeline!

That’s not all, though. Through a partnership with Oculus Studios, two of them are VR! 

Feral Rites: Avenge the death of your father by fighting your way through missions and quests in this VR adventure-brawler. Set on a mystical island, explore unique areas of the island from jungles to temples, while mastering new abilities including the power to transform into a feral beast. Below is the reveal trailer, and our first screenshots from the game, which will appear on the Oculus Store in Fall 2016. Feral Rites will be playable at E3 this year.

The Unspoken: An Oculus Touch‐enabled VR action game that pulls players into a hidden world of spellcasting and magician’s duels. Manipulate the environment around you with the powerful arcane forces that flow through your fingertips, summon ghastly monstrosities with your bare hands, and rise up through the ranks of an urban magic fight club in supernatural PVP combat. Check out the reveal trailer below, and our first screenshots from the game, which will release in November 2016. Attending media got to go hands-on with The Unspoken, so look for their impressions online. The Unspoken will also be playable at E3.

They also gave an update on their own original VR project they’ve been working called Edge of Nowhere!  Turns out it’ll be available June 6, 2016!  Take a look at some of the new screenshots.

Finally, they announced that their non-VR 2D game for XBOX, Playstation, and Steam, that they announced earlier this year, Songs of the Deep will be available July 12, 2016!

It’s good time to be an Insomniac Games fan!  There aren’t many indie studios that could release this many titles in one year so kudos to them!  To read the full post, click here.
