Not long after Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) released PlayStation VR into the world Crytek launched its first title for the platform Robinson: The Journey. Today the developer has announced a price reduction for the videogame.
The drop in price is permanent rather than a limited time offer, bringing the cost down to $49.99 USD/€49.99 EUR/£44.99 GBP (it previously sold for £54.99), via the PlayStation Store and on the videogame’s official website.
Coinciding with the price reduction, Crytek has released the first in a series of tech diary videos (seen below) highlighting the process of bringing the VR world of Robinson: The Journey to life.
Developed using Crytek’s CRYENGINE technology, Robinson: The Journey invites players to step into a science-fiction world full of adventure, secrets and dinosaurs. Playing as Robin, a boy stranded in the unmapped territory of Tyson III, gamers’ are accompanied by an AI companion called HIGS, and together they must survive the harsh environment and dangerous inhabitants as they search for the lost crew whilst unearthing the planet’s secrets along the way.
