The Dark Pictures: Switchback VR will use sophisticated headset technology PlayStation VR2 and its eye tracking system for understand when we close our eyes and take advantage of it: an article that appeared in the latest issue of EDGE magazine reveals it.
One of the launch games of PlayStation VR2, The Dark Pictures: Switchback VR will thus take advantage of a scary gimmick, with some areas of the scenario to close your eyes will allow enemies to get close to our location.
“A door marked ‘don’t blink’ leads us into a room full of bloodstained mannequinswith harlequin masks and bodies still in unnatural positions”, reads the article. “At a certain point we can’t help it and we have to close our eyes for a moment.”
“When we reopen them, the mannequins changed position. We blink again and it happens again, only this time one of them has come to life. By repeating the operation we understand how closing our eyes can be a tactic, and we only do it when our weapons are ready to fire.”
Similar to Until Dawn: Rush of Blood, The Dark Pictures: Switchback VR will offer us a rail shooter experience set in the world of The Dark Pictures, the horror series from Supermassive Games.
