The Persistence (VR)
Who do you trust? Procedurally generated first-person horror in VR.
The Persistence is a first-person stealth horror exclusively for PlayStation®4 & PlayStation®VR. Set on board a deep-space scientific vessel called The Persistence in the year 2521, the ship arrives at the site of a collapsing star 17,000 light years from Earth. While conducting a major experiment, a horrific incident occurs mutating many of the crew. As The Persistence is pulled into the gravity of the collapsing star, the ship's computer, IRIS, wakes remaining members of the crew from cryogenic sleep - one at a time. Can you stay alive long enough to save The Persistence?
Different every time - The Persistence is procedurally generated. Every time you die and a new character is awoken by IRIS, the layout of the ship has changed. Every life will play out differently, with different enemies to face, items to find and power-ups to collect.
Stealth and VR, a perfect match - Survival requires you to be stealthy and VR is the perfect match for this. Sneaking around and hiding behind cover; it's second nature in VR to just lean around or peek over cover to gain the advantage.
Collaborative Play: Phone a Friend - Your friends can also help out by connecting to the game with their phone or tablet and hacking into the ships computer. Once in the ships system, players get to control doors, freeze or distract enemies, disable traps and find hidden items to scavenge for the VR player. Be aware though, sometimes the tablet player gets rewarded if you die, do you trust your friends?
