The world of cowboys and dinosaurs collide in Dino Frontier
The upcoming PSVR title is outside the box to say the least.
At PlayStation Experience 2016 Uber Entertainment's upcoming game for the PSVR was announced, called Dino Frontier, and it allows you to manage a frontier settlement in a world where dinosaurs and the wild west collide.
The PlayStation blog gives more details on this concept. "You assume the role of Big Mayor overlooking your settlement in tabletop-scale VR," the post reads. "You must carefully balance resources while growing your town. All the while, wild dinosaurs roam the land acting as both dangerous foe and tantalising asset."
In the game you can reach down and pick people up (a little bit like you could back in RollerCoaster Tycoon) and you're also tasked with assigning settlers to jobs and ensure they are happy and healthy at the same time.
"Dino Frontier is a light simulation where settlers act semi-autonomously to fulfill their wants and needs. When sufficiently hungry, tired, or hurt, settlers will stop work to seek out a fix for their ailment. Or maybe they'll just stop by the saloon to have a drink and cheer up," the post continues.
The dinosaurs in the game include velociraptors, triceratops, tyrannosaurus rex, among others. They start as dangers, however, you can learn to live peacefully with them and work together.
Sony seem relatively confident that the game should please VR fans. "In 2016 we released the critically acclaimed Wayward Sky as a launch title for PlayStation VR," the blog post concluded. "With Dino Frontier, we're building on our experience to make a second-generation VR game. Dino Frontier offers core gameplay to satisfy players eager for deeper VR gameplay. Dino Frontier will be available for PlayStation VR in 2017. We can't wait for you to experience all the Jurassic frontier has to offer!"
