Back at the 2015 Game Developers Conference (GDC) in March Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) introduced a new version of its PlayStation VR virtual reality (VR) head-mounted display (HMD), then known as Project Morpheus. Along with the updated kit the company introduced some new software for it, including a continuation of The Playroom series in The Playroom VR. This collection of VR minigames is set to be a launch experience for PlayStation VR. Today, a video of one of these experiences, Ghost House, has arrived and can now be seen below.
This first-person experience utilises the miniature robots that are synonymous with The Playroom franchise. That said, here they’re scaled up to be only slightly smaller than the player. Once inside the house, players can use the DualShock 4 controller – virtually recreated within the title – to shine a light around the house. Players appear to be searching for a ghost which they can then capture, again using the position-tracked controller.
The Playroom VR is under development at SCE Japan, and this footage was taken from a recent SCE Korea press conference. VRFocus will continue to follow The Playroom VR closely, reporting back with any further updates on the title.
