Bonelab, an upcoming VR action game, has revealed all-new gameplay in a lengthy overview of its unique features and mechanics. The overview also announced that Bonelab will be available on September 29th, 2022. You can watch the new in-depth look at the game on YouTube here:
Bonelab was developed and published by Stress Level Zero. They’re the same team behind the surprise hit Boneworks, which similarly used strange physics, mystery elements, and technological intrigue. It also received an enormous amount of praise from fans, both for gameplay and its innovation.
And although that game released as far back as 2019, it is immediately clear from today’s overview that the devs haven’t lost their love for VR, still determined to push its limits in creative and satisfying ways. Even smaller mechanics, such as aligning self-touch between yourself and the in-game avatar, look very impressive.
The reason Bonelab feels so promising, from the footage shown today, is that Stress Level Zero understood that VR features should bolster a good game, first and foremost. Bonelab looks every bit as unique and thrilling as previous titles from the studio. The physics weapons definitely look fun to use, and the story has a unique freedom to it, even with some of its familiar themes.
It’s a bit odd that the release date was only confirmed just today, a week out from launch. That could make it difficult to find new players. That can be pretty damaging for the VR arena, which is already a niche crowd.
But the existing audience is sure to eat this up. It was also a smart move to hear from the artists themselves, since their sincere passion is kind of infectious.
