Crisis on the Planet of the Apes VR

FoxNext VR Studio has revealed a new PS4 game for PlayStation VR called Crisis on the Planet of the Apes VR. With a release date set for April 3, 2018, players can expect a first-person action-adventure with a story set between the Rise and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes movies.

In collaboration with Imaginati Studios, Crisis on the Planet of the Apes VR takes place five years since the outbreak. Playing an intelligent ape, you'll be shooting your way through various missions in an attempt to return to your home of Caesar.

“VR has always held the promise of bringing together the cinematic storytelling of film and the deeply immersive interactivity of games. Crisis on the Planet of the Apes VR takes this potential to the next level,” said Brendan Handler, SVP & GM, FoxNext VR Studio. “We set out to give the fan a lead role in this dark Planet of the Apes world - to feel the ape's strength, power and movement as he fights his way to safety.”

From a primate's perspective, the player becomes part of the storyline, captured and forced into deadly conflict with humans, fighting for their lives as they attempt to escape captivity. Players can expect to band together with other captive apes, confront human violence and channel primate instincts to survive.

“The Apes franchise supplies the perfect opportunity for players to become part of an apocalyptic world from the perspective of a different species for the first time ever,” Martin Alltimes, CEO, Imaginati Studios. “We wanted to balance visceral combat with a plot-driven narrative that leaves you questioning your innate allegiance to humanity.”

Crisis on the Planet of the Apes VR will launch on PSVR, Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, priced £14.99. Stay tuned for a full review of Crisis on the Planet of the Apes VR closer to the release date.
