During last week’s State of Play presentation, it was revealed that the upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive Concrete Genie will be compatible with PlayStation VR capabilities. Now, we know a little bit more about what that means.
In a recent post on the PlayStation blog, it was revealed that Concrete Genie will come with two VR modes, in addition to the main campaign that you don’t need a VR headset to enjoy. These two VR modes are called VR Experience and Free Paint. In the VR Experience mode, the game will take on a first-person perspective as the player follows a Genie (one of the protagonist’s painted creatures that has come to life) named Splotch “on a quest to unlock a mysterious power while using your Living Paint in a completely new way.” The developers want to keep most of this mode a secret for now, but mention that they think it will be “pretty special.”
After completing the VR Experience mode, players will unlock the Free Paint mode. In this mode, players will be transported to one of four in-game locations and can paint whatever they want in a 3D space, creating whatever creatures they want, to their hearts’ content.
Concrete Genie will launch on the PlayStation 4 sometime this fall.
