PlayStation VR’s power to transport you to otherworldly locations is unprecedented, and Paper Beast looks to be taking full advantage of these capabilities with its newly announced sandbox mode. As the trailer embedded above demonstrates, Another World creator Eric Chahi is embracing his inner-From Dust by allowing you to create ephemera ecosystems in virtual reality.
You can shape landscapes, add paper-based wildlife, and manipulate both to your heart’s content – all the time observing how the creatures and terrain adapts. The freeplay mode co-exists alongside a more structured campaign, where you’ll be tasked with solving environmental puzzles. It all looks and sounds very impressive, and you’ll be able to test it out yourself later this year.
