To date we know very little about Farpoint, other than the fact that it’ll be an exclusive PlayStation VR title. We’re also well aware that it’ll be a shooter and that it’ll make use of the new the PlayStation VR aim controller. Just why are you heading to some alien planet? You now have a video explaining just that.
On your mission you’ll be accompanied by Eva Tyson and Dr. Graham Moon. In their efforts to analyse a particular radiation they find themselves in trouble when their ship malfunctions and lands on an unknown alien world. It’s at this point that you’re separated from your colleagues. You have one simple aim – reunite with the scientists and escape the planet.
As can be seen in the trailer it’s not going to be quite as simple as you’ll come face-to-face with many alien species. The alien race looks like a mixture between traditional alien and machine and it seems they’ll be there in their numbers, so expect lots of shooting to take place. You’ll also have to scan several holographic logs throughout the landscape to learn more about the planet and how to get off it.
Farpoint launches exclusively for PlayStation VR on 16 May 2017.
