Crytek announces Robinson: The Journey
Independent video game developer and publisher Crytek has today announced their intention to get in on the impending VR gaming craze with a brand new IP that they claim to have built from the ground up that they’re calling Robinson: The Journey.
Crytek’s Director of Production had the following to say: “Ever since Crytek was founded, we have been striving to build the most realistic, believable worlds we possibly can for players. Today’s VR technologies are enabling us to bring together CRYENGINE’s capabilities and our legacy in creating immersive gaming experiences like never before. The time we’re spending in Robinson: The Journey as we develop it is transforming the way we think about games, and we can’t wait until everyone has the chance to set foot in this universe for themselves.”
Harnessing the power of Crytek‘s CRYENGINE, Robinson: The Journey will offer players an unparalleled sense of presence in a game world as they assume the role of a young boy who has crash-landed on a mysterious planet. With freedom to explore their surroundings in 360 degrees of detail, players will become pioneers by interacting with the rich ecosystem around them and unearthing incredible secrets at every turn.
It’s early days for the game yet, with no VR systems currently released to the public at large, but you can sign up to receive more information at www.robinsonthegame.com
