Hubris, Cyborn’s visually stunning PC VR action-adventure, releases on PSVR 2 next month.
Developed by Cyborn, Hubris is an original sci-fi adventure that first appeared on PC VR in December. You play as a space marine, traversing this alien world to find a missing member of the OOO (Order of Objectivity) while taking down enemies. Cyborn revealed more about the PSVR 2 port alongside the release window, discussing haptic feedback, adaptive triggers, 3D audio and foveated rendering.
Speaking on PlayStation Blog, the team claims they’ve adjusted the weight of your guns, letting them simulate “an impactful feel” that complements the adaptive triggers. Gun reloading and aiming are also revamped, new enemy variations have been introduced, while balancing has also been refined between difficulty settings.
We enjoyed Hubris in our PC VR review last year. Though we enjoyed this action-adventure and highly praised its visuals, we criticized the enemy AI and lack of combat variety. Some of these issues were later addressed in Update 1.2.
The game shines in some areas, such the visuals and well thought out mechanics, but is average in others, like the combat and storyline. Beyond the eye candy, Hubris probably won’t leave a huge lasting impression, but it’s still a standard action-adventure shooter that’s enjoyable enough to keep you playing through to the end.
Hubris arrives this May for PSVR 2, though a specific release date remains unconfirmed. It’s available now on PC VR platforms, including Steam, while Cyborn previously confirmed release plans for Vive XR Elite and Quest 2.
