PSVR 2 and Horizon Call of the Mountain pre-orders have gone live*, with the next generation VR headset and its gorgeous launch title set to release on 22nd February 2022.
To mark the moment, Guerrilla Games and Firesprite have release a new pre-order trailer and shared more story details.
Here’s what Guerrilla can now tell us about the story and some of the gameplay
In Horizon Call of the Mountain, you step into the shoes (and put on the gloves) of Ryas, a former Shadow Carja Warrior searching for redemption. Haunted by a difficult past and scouted for a dangerous task, Ryas has been offered freedom only in exchange for investigating a new threat to the Sundom. A master at climbing and archery, he will need to utilize all of his skills to survive the perilous journey for answers.
New and old Horizon characters, including Aloy herself, will cross paths with Ryas to aid him in his quest to uncover the secret threat. Being equipped for any situation is vital to Ryas’ success, and throughout Horizon Call of the Mountain you’ll come across weapons and tools you’ll need to master to survive against the mighty machines you’ll meet along the way.
You can see from the trailer that there’s plenty of interactivity with the world. This is far from an on-rails action shooter, incorporating more free motion within dynamic battle arenas and climbing to navigate the world.
Horizon Call of the Mountain is a PlayStation VR 2 exclusive, and can either be pre-ordered in a bundle with the PSVR 2 or purchased separately.
* Pre-orders are live for PSVR 2 and Horizon Call of the Mountain, the headset costing £529.99 separately and £569.99 in a bundle with the game. In the US, UK, France, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg pre-orders can only be placed via PlayStation Direct with a registration period having run since earlier this month.
I thought it would be difficult to pre-order due to a load of folk trying to do the same but I clicked on my ‘personal’ link just after 10am where there was no slow down or connection issues.
I’ve not played the current Horizon game but looking forward to the Call of the Mountain.
It’s more difficult if you don’t get the invite to pre-order. Apparently, they’ve sent more out after the initial batch.
I still haven’t got one.
So sod it, I’m going to go and make my own PSVR2, with blackjack and hookers.
