Insomniac Games announes two new virtual reality projects for Oculus Rift


The developer today revealed two titles that it’s developing for the Oculus Rift headset. Augmented and virtual reality could become a $120 billion market by 2020, according to tech adviser Digi-Capital. Insomniac is one of the best-known console developers (having worked mostly with the PlayStation brand), having created popular franchises like Spyro, Ratchet & Clank, and Resistance. And game developers are quickly jumping on this new technology, which could prove to be one of the most innovative changes in gaming since the introduction of the smartphone.

The first VR game is Feral Rights.

“Avenge the death of your father by fighting your way through missions and quests in this VR adventure-brawler,” Insomniac describes. “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.” It will come out in the fall. You can see a trailer for the game below.

The other Oculus Rift title is The Unspoken.

“An Oculus Touch‐enabled VR action game that pulls players into a hidden world of spellcasting and magician’s duels,” Insomniac explains. “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 [player-vs.-player] combat.” It will come out November 2016. The trailer is below.

It’s a busy year for Insomniac. The developer is also working on another Oculus Rift game, Edge of Nowhere. That June 6 release is a third-person action-adventure game set in Antarctica. Outside of VR, Insomniac is also making Song of the Deep, a 2D, exploration-based game set in the ocean that will come out on July 12 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The studio also recently released a new Ratchet & Clank for PS4, with a movie based on the franchise hitting theaters on April 29.
