The Wanderer: The Fragments of Fate Receives Exciting Upgrades for PSVR2
The highly anticipated PlayStation VR game, Wanderer: The Fragments of Fate, is set to receive a major upgrade for the upcoming PSVR2. Developer Mighty Eyes has recently revealed the details of this upgrade, showcasing the significant improvements and new features players can expect.
The Wanderer: The Fragments of Fate PSVR2 Upgrade Introduces Impressive Visual Enhancements
According to an article on the PlayStation Blog, one of the most notable enhancements in the PSVR2 version of Wanderer is its visuals. Mighty Eyes has completely overhauled the game’s NPCs and lighting system, resulting in a more immersive and visually striking experience. To witness the difference, you can watch the comparison video below:
In addition to the visual improvements, players will now be able to see their full bodies, rather than just floating limbs, providing a heightened sense of presence. Mighty Eyes has also introduced a groundbreaking “state-of-the-art player avatar system” and advanced A.I., ensuring more realistic and convincing player animations. To achieve this realism, the developers used Epic Games’ cutting-edge MetaHumans system, which offers creators the ability to design and animate highly realistic human characters.
Enhanced Gameplay and Interactivity
Mighty Eyes has not only focused on visual upgrades but also refined and expanded the gameplay mechanics of Wanderer. The physics within the game have been significantly improved, resulting in more accurate and realistic item movements. Additionally, the combat system has undergone a complete redesign, introducing a wider array of weapons and enemies, and providing players with greater freedom. The platforming elements now rely on physics, making them more interactive and allowing for increased mobility. As a result, levels have been redesigned to complement this newfound flexibility and provide players with a greater sense of freedom. To further enhance the gameplay experience, three brand new levels have been added.
A Seamless Time-Travelling Adventure
The mechanics of time travel in Wanderer have also seen improvements. Mighty Eyes has introduced changes that enable greater persistence, creating a seamless experience when transitioning between time periods or worlds. This means that when players leave a specific era and return, things will be exactly as they left them. Furthermore, the beloved character Samuel, the talking watch, has received an upgrade with a new user interface, storage system, and an extra feature allowing players to locate lost items—an improvement that addresses a criticism from the original release.
While fans are eagerly anticipating the release of Wanderer: The Fragments of Fate on PSVR2, no specific launch date has been provided yet. Moreover, it remains unclear whether there will be an upgrade option for owners of the PS4 version. The original game, released in January 2022 for the original PSVR, received positive reviews and achieved an average score of 85 on OpenCritic.
