How PS VR action shooter Blood & Truth and PlayLink thriller Erica are pushing genre innovation

PS VR and PlayLink have presented exciting new opportunities for game creators, leading developers to break new ground in well-established genres.

Both Blood and Truth and Erica are great examples. They are both going deep on innovation and in different ways; they are rewriting the design rulebook for their respective genres.

Blood & Truth is an action packed thriller set in modern day London, against the city’s backdrop of glamour and grit. The capabilities of PSVR have allowed London Studio to put you in the shoes of an action hero in a way you will not have experienced before.
