IGN is just one outlet fortunate enough to get hands-on time with PSVR2, and has posted the above video sharing its impressions. One small detail is what to expect from the duration of Horizon Call of the Mountain — we now know it will be roughly "6-7 hours" in length.
So, the story won't take you on some 50-hour epic as with Horizon Forbidden West, instead opting for a shorter tale. As mentioned in the video, it'll be more than just a tech demo, but won't take players too long to get through, which may be welcome news for some.
It sounds like a good length to us — long enough to spin an interesting yarn in the Horizon world, but short enough that it won't outstay its welcome. Playing any VR title for a long time can be tiring, and especially hard on the eyes, so this seems like a good middle ground. Still, fans may have been hoping for a little more given the console games are much larger.
We also learn you'll play a "disgraced" Carja soldier named Ryas in a standalone adventure that takes place during the events of Horizon Zero Dawn.
How do you feel about a shorter experience with Horizon Call of the Mountain? Clamber into the comments section below.
That's longer than I thought it would be. I figured it would be more of a tech-demo than a game. Not sure if it's enough to make me buy a set but maybe further down the line.
That makes sense - It was never going to be a big open world adventure. I was expecting a shorter, more linear tale.
Surely it will be priced accordingly, yes?
@IonMagi Just £65 - bargain
People didn't really expect a massive game like Forbidden West did they? Sounds about right and that's good for me since having a family eats a lot of time.
6-7 hour game on vr is more than most games.
People complaining about it have never played vr before.
i'm more then fine with that. do you really want to play a 20 hour vr game? also that's just the average play time. i'm sure most people it could take an hour or two longer.
That sounds like a good length for a VR game tbh, I wasn’t really expecting it to be longer than that.
Can't wait to play this, looks great. More than happy with 7 hours, ideal length for a vr title. Just hoping I get psvr2 day one 🙏.
Thats pretty big for a vr game to be fair ,average is usually 2 to 4hrs ,although I'm more excited about saints and sinners 2 to be honest.
Was hoping for a 10h-12h game tbh.
And before the "booing" starts, I'm more than fine with saving a game if I get too tired, and picking it up later, if it means getting as much "game" as possible for the money I spend.
Quality over quantity, no open world ***** I hope. Just an amazing VR experience from start to finish.
Yah I still believe this looks like a glorified tech demo. Based on where Sony has chosen to put themselves in terms of this generation. I have a feeling PSVR2 will be applauded as a piece of tech, but be held back by a greedy price, and lack of very many good vr games that has plagued the medium thus far.
If they price this thing at anything more than 299 it will be bad timing for it to sell. Considering the price increase of the quest set, I'm guessing Sony will match that. Meaning this thing will likely cost as much as the Ps5.
That's a solid no for many people considering the software suite will likely be barren for some time, ps5 alone is hard to come by and for many, VR is more of a gimmick to many bought as a glorified party show and a luxury considering the cost off everything continues to climb thanks to the greed of other corporate overlords and as has been the case for nearly half a century wages largely do not.
@IonMagi Unknown factor at this point in time, we don't even have a solid release date for the game yet.
