During the livestream event for The Game Awards 2022, studio and publisher Skydance Interactive has just dropped a cinematic trailer for their upcoming VR Action RPG title – Behemoth. Behemoth is set to launch on the Meta Quest 2, PSVR2 and PCVR.
The cinematic trailer shows off Behemoths’ brutal yet tactical VR combat as players conquer monolithic beings in a grim and unforgiving world.
Creative Director of Skydance Interactive Todd Adamson mentions “From Archangel to The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners, we’ve learned a lot over the years about the unique challenges and strengths of VR.”
Todd also talks about “Behemoth is the culmination of a decade of work, and is crafted for gamers that want a deep, all-encompassing experience that is specifically tailored to the medium. We hope that players are as excited as we are for the launch of Behemoth next year.”
In the world of Behemoth, players get to explore the plague-ravished wasteland of a once glorious empire, where its inhabitants are driven made and cities have fallen to ruin. Players’ bodies and minds will be tested as they combat towering colossal giants called Behemoths.
However, raw strength will not be enough as players must use various tools in their arsenal to defeat these gigantic nightmarish enemies in the player’s quest for a cure.
Redefined, Brutally Tactile Combat – Players are required to think before attacking as human AI has been leveled up for melee combat where weak points, armor and technique all matter. Strength is key but conserving energy will need to be accounted for as everything has a price in this unforgiving world.
A Refinement of VR Physics – Traverse the scaling landscape using your hands and/or the grappling hook or use it to rip apart the world around you. Grapple an enemy to gain the tactical advantage or use the surrounding landscape to stealthily eliminate foes.
A Stark, New World – A completely new, unforgiving, yet surprisingly beautiful world to explore and survive in. Players will craft, fight, endure throughout the world of Behemoth
