Blood & Truth Announced for PS VR, From London Studios

First details on a brand new action thriller set in the heart of London.

Stuart Whyte's Avatar Posted by Director of VR Product Development, London Studio

I’m Stuart Whyte, Director of VR Product Development at London Studios and I’m thrilled to be able to tell you a bit more about Blood & Truth, a brand new action game we’re developing from the ground up, exclusively for PlayStation VR.

Blood & Truth takes place in modern day London against the city’s backdrop of glamour and grit, making it the perfect location for a criminal underworld to inhabit.

The capabilities of PS VR have allowed us to put you into the shoes of an action hero in a way you won’t have experienced before. From the moment you slip on the headset, you become Ryan Marks, an elite Special Forces soldier who is on a dangerous mission to save his family from a ruthless criminal overlord. Playing as Ryan, you will come face to face with enemies, uncover secrets and experience the thrill of the chase.

Blood & Truth was inspired by one of our earlier projects – PlayStation VR Worlds (which has gone on to be one of the top-selling titles with PSVR owners), a range of experiences which included The London Heist. People loved it and reacted really positively to everything the game made possible, from the way you could interact with objects in front of you, to how it made you feel as you played through.

We wanted to build on this feeling and create something really special. While The London Heist was a love letter to the classic London east end gangster films, Blood & Truth focuses on the action movie genre and features dramatic scenes throughout the story, big drama moments and the kind of impressive set pieces you would expect from an action blockbuster.

Our ambition for Blood & Truth means we have spent a lot of time developing touches and moments that bring you into Ryan’s world even more. Movement is hyper realistic and together with its compelling story, you live and breathe the drama as it happens. For example, shoot and you will feel vibrations through the Move controllers, reload your gun with both hands as if you are really gripping a weapon and push buttons exactly as you would in real life – the realism makes you feel you are experiencing it yourself.

In keeping with the cinematic feel, sound is a key part of Blood & Truth. Our audio team worked closely with leading music producers and artists to create a unique mash up of classic movie orchestral scoring and London grime – we are very proud of it and think it adds a totally new dimension to the game.

Finally, in Blood and Truth you have the opportunity to make your own dialogue choices as the story unfolds – your experience is directly impacted and you can actually shape the type of action hero you want to be.

That’s all from me today, this is just a glimpse in to what Blood & Truth has in store… we will have much more to share in the coming months!

This looks great. I was really looking forward to an adult modern crime story in VR.

I want an alternate version of this trailer, showing the guy crawling across his floor and end the end, jumping out his own window in real life. That would really sell the VR aspect of it.

You gave us our wish and are making a full VR game like London Heist!

Honestly, this was the only game announced today that I didn’t know was coming already that I now consider it a must buy. This looks so good, and I wish you guys all of the luck in the world on a smooth development process. I am looking forward to this one.

It was the best part of VR worlds by far, excited to see this in action. Just wondering is it full locomotion or a rail shoot on steroids? I’d love to be able to play more games with my Aim Controller.

Looks excellent!

I’m just so curious to know how movement is handled with the 2-move controller configuration. Care to elaborate?

I can’t wait to play this. It looks like so much fun. This and Ghosts of Tsushima. I am really happy with Sony announcements at the Paris Games Show.

This looks amazing. London Heist (along with Super Hot) has been one of the games on PSVR I’ve played through multiple times, and I can’t wait to see a full game in the same mold. Quick question about movement: how much is on rails or static versus free roam? I love VR, but am prone to anti-motion sickness in some of the more intense games. London Heist worked so well for me because most of the action took place from a static position. Will this be an option in Blood and Truth? Thanks, and can’t wait to see more!
