Insomniac’s Stormland Shows Off Stunning Post-Apocalyptic World in New Trailer

Stormland

Oculus has shown off a new trailer for Insomniac’s upcoming VR adventure Stormland, focusing on the glorious world that players will explore.

The new trailer for the VR action-adventure (embedded below) details an open world complete with ever-changing environments, unexplored islands, dangerous strongholds, and rare technology.

Insomniac Games has years of industry experience especially from previous titles including Ratchet & Clank and Sunset Overdrive. However, Stormland will benefit from new combat, movement, and mechanics to provide players with the tools to discover a mysterious civilization.

The story’s protagonist will be a peaceful gardener whose android body gets shattered by an event known as The Tempest. After lying dormant for centuries, the character will begin a journey through a landscape in the clouds, become a heroic fighter, save friends, and reclaim the world above.

In the game, players explore an expansive environment with complete freedom. Players can utilise new movement mechanics like binding up cliffs, gliding across chasms, and flying through the slipstream at near-terminal velocity. Furthermore, players will need to detonate explosives, harness electricity, and wield makeshift weapons to overcome titanium sentries and monolithic guardians.

Stormland will be by far one of Insomniac Games’s most ambitious VR games, with a release scheduled for later in 2019.

Halo Infinite

Tim Longo, the creative director for Halo Infinite, has left 343 Industries.

According to Kotaku, Longo moved to a different role in 343 Industries a few weeks ago and then left the company for good this week.

In his place, executive producer Mary Olson will take over the responsibilities of the Campaign team as the lead producer. The studio head of Halo Infinite, Chris Lee, will still be in charge of the game’s overall creative vision and production.

Microsoft assured that Longo’s departure would not impact the game’s late 2020 release window and will still launch alongside the next Xbox platform, currently codenamed Project Scarlett.

Longo was also the Creative Director for Halo 5, as well as had previously worked on games such as Star Wars: Republic Commando and 2013’s Tomb Raider.

At E3 2019, Microsoft noted that Halo Infinite‘s Slipstream engine will support future Halo entries and that the game will be a single-player game initially at launch.
