Unearthing Mars 2 Launches September 18 for PS VR

Posted by on Aug 15, 2018

Hello everyone! I’m thrilled to announce that Unearthing Mars 2: The Ancient War will be launched on September 18!

Unearthing Mars 2 is a futuristic FPS VR shooter from beginning to end, featuring slow-motion superpowers, distinctive weapons and challenging boss battles. You will experience adrenaline-pumping FPS combat as you shoot down enemies and bend time to your advantage.

Our first PS VR title, Unearthing Mars, was released in 2017. It highlighted the potential of VR gaming by introducing a different gameplay mechanic in each chapter. This second installment continues the adventures; however, this time it will be a complete FPS title, featuring shooter gameplay from the last chapters of the first game that fans loved so much. You are equipped with a PS VR Aim Controller to take down enemy foes as you travel back in time to an ancient Mars civilization. The new gameplay enables you to shoot enemies as you comfortably maneuver in and out of action-packed combat.

Grand Theft Auto V tops the chart for the second month straight! Is this reignited interest thanks to the Red Dead hype train kicking into gear? Or perhaps it’s the impressive new “After Hours” DLC just added to GTA Online. Maybe it’s that Stone Hatchet you can unlock in GTA and RDR2. Either way, congrats Rockstar!

You need to build an experience that’s tailored specifically to the platform and utilises its strengths.

Japan Studio has worked tirelessly not only to reimagine those genre essentials – tight controls, challenging platforming, big bosses, ‘secret’ areas – but also to bring something unique to the table.
