A few months ago, Mark Cerny teased a new PlayStation 5 system that allows direct access to certain parts of games. Today we are finally learning what this system is called and what it will make players do in the soon to be released racing game WCR 9.
This system, which will be called Activities, was unveiled at a presentation given by WCR 9 director Alan Jarniou and product manager Sébastien Waxin, as reported by Game Reactor Spain. The PlayStation 5 Activities system provides direct access from the menu to races or other parts of the game.
The PlayStation 5 version of WCR 9 will also take advantage of the power of PlayStation 5 to provide native 4K, at least 60 fps, improved physics and simulation, and higher texture resolution.
As mentioned earlier, the PlayStation 5 Activities system was plagued a few months ago by Mark Cerny himself. The system works for both single player and multiplayer games.
Even though it’s pretty quick to start up games, we don’t want the player to have to start up the game, see what’s going on, start up the game, see what’s going on. Multiplayer game servers will provide the console with the range of shareable activities in real time. Single-player games provide information such as which missions you could complete and what rewards you could receive for completing them – and all those choices will be visible in the user interface. As a player you just jump in whatever you want.
The PlayStation 5 console will launch worldwide later this year.
