This upcoming game looks to be one of the more intriguing games to utilize the concept; it’s a live-action drama where you can interact with the narrative. No word yet on when Erica will make its PS4 debut.
Blood & Truth
This game will be like one of the best initial offerings for PSVR, that was a mini-game called “The Heist,” which threw you into a series of Guy Ritchie-style action sequences. The upcoming Blood & Truth looks to expand on that idea by fleshing out the concept with a larger experience and more cohesive story. The game currently doesn’t have a release date.
One of the most celebrated indie games of all time is getting a sequel. The cave-dwelling adventures of Spelunky will continue, though the details about the game are slim.

The gardens Between
The game is described as a “surreal story of friendship,” and it looks to follow the story of two characters as they make their way through a strange world filled with impossibly huge objects. The developers said that players will be able to control the flow of time in the game, which should make for some interesting narrative puzzles. The Gardens Between is launching on PS4 sometime next year.
