The Persistence is a procedurally generated, first person, Stealth Horror in VR. This week the game will be making its E3 show floor debut!

A unique feature of The Persistence is the companion app that allows up to 4 non-VR players to directly affect gameplay by connecting to the PS4 with their tablets or phones.

Over the coming months, Firesprite is excited to reveal some of the terrifying cast you will encounter on board a deep space exploration vessel called "The Persistence!", starting at E3 with the rage filled Berserker.

During a scientific experiment, hundreds of the ship’s crew were accidentally teleported in to space. IRIS the ships computer, tried to bring them all back but the DNA of The Persistence’s crew was merged and began to mutate.

This is how The Berserker was born.  He’s 9ft tall, over 4ft wide, and has serious anger issues! It’s safer to run and hide when you see a Berserker but by taking a risk, you can use his rage to your advantage. 

If you can somehow cause him damage, then the red mist descends and he’ll smash anything and anybody including other mutated crew!  Of course, if he spots you then his snarling face is going to be the last thing you ever see!

Before taking the Beserker on, visit one of the Fabricator machines on board the ship to make some deadly power-ups.  

The ‘Anti-Grav Smash’ bestows you with telekinetic powers, letting you lift enemies off the ground and then smash them in to the floor with a nod of your head.  If you ever wanted to be The Hulk when he smashes Loki in The Avengers, then this is the power-up for you!  

For a more clinical approach, the Swarm Droids are a great way to go.  Releasing 6 small military droids from the palm of your hand, you watch from cover as they track down the mutant crew, buzzing around them with deadly electrical charges.

Can you stay alive long enough to save The Persistence?
