Initially announced during Paris Games Week 2017 and teased at E3 2018, SIE’s PlayStation VR exclusive Blood & Truth has been given an official release date and a new story trailer. Today’s State of Play PlayStation broadcast has revealed that the game will officially release on May 28, 2019. A brief description of the game (followed by initial screenshots) can be found below.
Put on your PlayStation VR headset and ready yourself for hard-hitting action in the gritty and glamorous London underworld. You are elite Special Forces soldier Ryan Marks, on a desperate mission to save his family from a ruthless criminal overlord.
Grab your PS Move motion controllers and blast anyone in your way as you go face to face with enemies, uncover secrets and experience the thrill of the chase in a high-octane action narrative inspired by PlayStation VR Worlds’ ‘The London Heist’ experience.
Key features of Blood & Truth touted on its PlayStation.com page include the following:
Become an action hero
Discover what it feels like to be front and center in immersive and explosive set pieces, as PS VR lets you feel the vibrations of your weapons, reload your gun with both hands as if you are really gripping a weapon and push buttons exactly as you would in real life.
Shape your character
Get pulled into the heart of the action with a rich story and carefully crafted script which lets you make your own dialogue choices as the blockbuster story unfolds.
Explore an iconic and detailed London backdrop
Rampage around the melting pot of glamour and grit that is modern day London, against the unique mashed-up soundtrack of classic movie orchestral scoring and London grime, composed specially for the game by leading artists.
