After several years of development, Team ICO's The Last Guardian finally released on PS4 last December. Since the game's launch, the team had wondered about ways to bring across the special bond between Trico and the boy in even more engaging ways, and the result of this is new a VR experience.
During the PlayStation Experience presentation, Sony announced The Last Guardian VR Demo, a special virtual reality experience VR set in the unforgettable world of The Last Guardian: one filled with haunting ruins and breathtaking scale. The demo lets you play from the perspective of the boy as he interacts with Trico.
Although The Last Guardian VR demo is a short experience, offering around 15 to 20 minutes of gameplay time, Sony describes the demo as a "testament to the power of PS VR to immerse, and the breathtaking scale and character of the world of The Last Guardian". This is also a standalone experience, which means that a copy of The Last Guardian is not required to play it.
The Last Guardian VR Demo will be available for free this Tuesday, December 12.
