Released: November 8th, 2016Get it now
Today Crytek announced that VR sci fi adventure Robinson: The Journey is coming to HTC Vive. Powered by CRYENGINE, Crytek’s first release for Vive will be available for download from Steam for USD 39.99 / EUR 39.99. Players who own Robinson for Oculus Rift on Steam will receive Vive in today’s patch.
“We are very excited to be bringing Robinson to a new platform and to introduce Vive owners to the mysterious planet of Tyson III,” said Producer Fatih Özbayram. “The game fully supports Vive’s motion controllers, and we’ve mapped a wide range of actions to player’s hand movements which delivers a new, really immersive way to experience the game.”
In an adventure inspired by Daniel Defoe’s novel Robinson Crusoe and classic science fiction, you will become the first human to explore an extrasolar planet. When the Esmeralda crash-lands on Tyson III, a boy named Robin is left stranded. He must rely on his wits – and HIGS, one of the ship’s AI units – to survive. As he searches for the lost crew and comes face-to-face with dinosaurs, Robin discovers that Tyson III is not the paradise he was promised.
Stunningly realistic graphics provide a true feeling of presence in the lush and mysterious environs of Tyson III thanks to the power of CRYENGINE, and expert sound design fills out the world of Robinson. Every creature has its own voice, and attenuation ensures that each sound changes depending on the location of the player, a detail that really brings the world to life. Robinson’s ambient soundscapes are embellished by a score composed by Jesper Kyd.
