Hello friends, I’m Ryan Bousfield, founder and director of Wolf & Wood Interactive, and I’m here today to announce that our upcoming game The Last Worker will be released on PlayStation 5 and PS VR2 on March 30th!
For people who may not be familiar with the game, let me briefly describe it. The Last Worker is a first-person adventure story we’re creating with Jörg Tittel (Writer, Director) and Wired Productions (Publisher) that combines a casual job simulation with stealth gameplay and an incredibly dark satirical story performed by an all-star cast. cast (such as Ólafur Darry Ólafsson, Jason Isaacs, Claire-Hope Ashiti, David Hewlett, Zelda Williams and Tommy Earl Jenkins).
You are Kurt, the last employee of Jüngle, the most profitable company in the world. Kurt is in charge of “making dreams come true” with his bot assistant SKEW in charge huge distribution center (bigger than the sunken island of Manhattan) in an anti-gravity pod, then using his “Jünglegun” to retrieve, analyze and label the products properly before shipping or destruction. Kurt is pretty happy with his lot, all things considered – until a connection from a shadowy organization interferes with his day job and gives him a chance to look beneath the surface of the jungle and the dark secrets that built the empire…
Last Worker will be playable in both traditional ‘flat mode’ and PS VR2 compatibility, with both versions of the game being independently designed to maximize the strengths of each version of the game, and of course to make the most of unique features. PlayStation 5 and PS VR2 hardware.
Hybrid game and save
The Last Worker will be available as both PS5 and PSVR2 games, but you won’t need to pay for an upgrade when you buy the game, you get both versions and your save files and progress carry over between them. This means that if you spend the morning completely immersed in the world of the PS VR2 JFC-1, but want to switch quickly later without wearing a headset, you can just play on the TV.
4K HDR PS VR2 visuals
The Last Worker features a beautifully stylized world that combines custom shading and art from concepts drawn by comics legend Mick McMahon (known for his work on 2000 AD characters such as Judge Dredd and Slaine) that have been lovingly adapted by our drawing team. every pen stroke in 3D! This has resulted in a bright, colorful world that is impressively brought to life by PS VR2’s two 2000 x 2040 OLED screens.
Wolf & Wood have previously produced games for PS VR and understand the importance of audio in creating a believable immersive world. This is no different for The Last Worker, with crisp 3D audio delivering every explosion, bit of dialogue from the actors or track from the OST (which was composed by Olver Kraus, known for his collaborations with Adele, Sia, Florence and the Machine and more) , to sound crystal clear regardless of your position.
Adaptive triggers and tactile feedback
As Kurt’s story progresses, so does the selection of tools at his disposal, from using the Junglegun as a makeshift hacking tool to the powerful EMP Rifle – each tool you’ll use for everyday work (or espionage) includes unique feedback through the use of adaptive triggers and a powerful haptic feedback – whether you’re marking a package or throwing rats in the face of a pursuing security bot.
PS VR2 headset review
One of the features we’re most excited about in PS VR2 is the feedback on the headset itself, and for The Last Worker we’ve made sure it responds to on-screen action as you hover around the JFC-1 to put you right in the hot seat Junglepod Kurta. The impressive chaos of flying debris, giant robots and explosions is simulated for the player with the help of an optional haptic headset.
We can’t wait for you to experience all of this and more – however you choose to play The Last Worker, you’ll be immersed in exploring the dark underbelly of the jungle and the important story Kurt shared. Until then, keep an eye on Wired Productions and The Last Worker social accounts for more information, and we look forward to your entry day on March 30th.
