Blood & Truth Interview: SIE London Studio's Stuart Whyte on Expanding The London Heist

If you enjoyed the original via PlayStation VR Worlds, you'll love the standalone game. 


Blood & Truth is a PlayStation VR exclusive that builds on the game foundation created in PlayStation VR Worlds. This standalone experience based on the exemplary The London Heist places you in the shoes of elite Special Forces soldier Ryan Marks as you work to save your family from a criminal overlord who'll stop at nothing to get his way.

Shacknews spoke to SIE London Studio's Stuart Whyte, director of VR Product Development, about what the team learned from the original short title available within PlayStation VR Worlds, and shared a bit about what we can expect from the upcoming title.

"The London Heist went down really well. For us, it was very short, a 45-minute experience. I think we learned a lot of great lessons around drama in VR and having an immersive, interactive story. We've really built on that with Blood & Truth."

There are a number of different locomotion systems with waypoints that you can move to, and it looks very easy to get around in the game. According to Whyte, it was chosen because it makes things simpler to fully immerse yourself while shooting and reloading your gun.

If this looks like something that's up your alley, you can look for Blood & Truth in the near future -- unfortunately, there isn't a planned release date just yet, but you can expect to see it as a PlayStation VR exclusive.
