Supermassive Games (developers of Until Dawn: Rush of Blood) revealed two new PlayStation VR titles at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in June. After teasing fans with new psychological horror game, The Inpatient, and a PSVR Aim controller-fueled cover shooter, Bravo Team, both the developer and Sony remained quiet until today. Via a PlayStation Blog post this morning, Supermassive announced the release dates for both titles — they’ll be out on PSVR before the end of the year.
The Inpatient will hit store shelves and the PSN Store on November 21st, 2017, and Bravo Team does the same on December 5th, 2017. Here’s a new trailer for The Inpatient too, revealing a few more details about the psychological horror thriller’s story:
The game is set in Blackwood Sanitarium, a location that fans of the team’s first Until Dawn title will likely remember. This title will likely feature branching story elements that are similiar to the original Until Dawn and helped it earn critical acclaim. According to Supermassive executive producer Simon Harris in the blog post, “Your decisions and actions will determine the fate of people that you meet. You’ll get to influence and shape how the story unfolds as you witness the horrific events of the sanitarium’s final days.”
PSVR’s other upcoming title, Bravo Team, wasn’t as impressive during our E3 demo. The cover-based shooting mechanic worked well, but not being able to move at all other than popping from one cover spot to the next felt restrictive in the wake of Impulse Gear’s liberating Farpoint. We’ll have to wait and see how that one turns out.
