First Person Superhero Game Megaton Rainfall Launches on September 26 for PS4 & PSVR

August 9, 2017 Written by Jason Dunning

Previously expected in 2016, Megaton Rainfall is releasing on September 26 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR, Pentadimensional Games announced today.

A First Person Superhero Game, Megaton Rainfall sees you playing as an indestructible superhero trying to save the world from an alien invasion. Because you’re so powerful, you can easily destroy buildings in your mission (see the new trailer for examples), and it’s game over if the city suffers too much damage.

Developer Alfonso del Cerro explained:

In the game you can fly, at supersonic speeds (Richard Donner’s Superman style) around the entire Earth, recreated procedurally, including cities up to 200 square miles that you can cross from end to end at Mach 8 speed, in seconds.

Another remarkable feature is the procedural destruction of the cities. In the game you can’t die in any way, but the city has a health bar, and if you let the aliens destroy too many buildings (or you miss your targets), you’ll leave a trail of collapsed buildings and it will be game over.

As you progress through the game, your freedom of movement will increase and you’ll be able to leave Earth and visit the moon and sun.

In terms of performance, Megaton Rainfall will support 4K resolution (via checkerboard rendering) at 60 frames-per-second on PlayStation 4 Pro. Added PS4 Pro support includes an increase to the supersampling quality of the PSVR version. Regardless of how you play, Cerro says Megaton Rainfall targets 60fps.

Megaton Rainfall is playable from start to finish in VR, and for player comfort, some camera effects like rolls and shakes will be removed.

Megaton Rainfall (price TBA) is a timed PlayStation-exclusive and will come to PC at a later date.
