11 ways Blood & Truth lets you play out your action hero fantasies

Put on your PlayStation VR headset and get ready – here’s how this action-packed blockbuster will bring out the action hero in you, all from the comfort of your own home. 

 
 

1. Use your enemy’s tech against them

Action heroes don’t usually binge watch TV, but that’s because there are so many more compelling things to be done – like using your target’s closed-circuit security camera network to scope out the building’s various nooks. It’s not only useful for working out how many armed goons you’ll be facing off against, but also to work out exactly where a weaselly underboss may be hiding, so you can pay him a little visit…

2. Laugh in the face of the bad guys

When things get desperate, an action hero’s enemy will always turn tail and bring out the big guns. Which usually means those fancy helicopters they’ve been saving for a rainy day will finally get their moment. But have no fear – it doesn’t matter what your nemesis is using, you’ll be ready with a high-speed vehicle and a large automatic weapon to bring them back down to earth with a bang.

3. The Armed Forces have your back

Going alone isn’t always the wisest option, even for nigh indestructible action heroes. Good thing that you have friends in high places who can sometimes lend an explosive helping hand.  Blood & Truth doesn’t let you outright call airstrikes, but main character Ryan Marks’ Special Forces past lets you experience what it’s like to have some fly girls and boys on hand to mop up.

4. Enjoy a more thrilling way to fly

Airports can be a busy hellscape for anyone, but it’s especially tricky if you’re trying to chase an escaping criminal. That won’t stop an action hero like Ryan Marks, though, who can speed under a large jet to scramble on board via its undercarriage. Dangerous and exhilarating – and that’s before you even get to deal with the forces inside…

5. Make road blocks a thing of the past

Frustrating traffic jams are barely an inconvenience for any action hero worth their salt, but when it comes to the full-on road blocks you’ll encounter in the game, you have an edge. A few well aimed shots of Ryan’s pistol can make short work of anything standing in your way, so don’t take your foot off the pedal.

6. Explosions become a cool tool

You’re not going to be behind every explosion in Blood & Truth, but that doesn’t mean you won’t have opportunities to still look cool while everything around you is erupting in flames. Even if you’re stuck in an elevator shaft, billowing fireballs are merely a handy propulsion device as you make your way to the top of a building.

7. Use one shot to solve your problems

Why lug around a rocket launcher or minigun to take care of hundreds of heavily armed baddies, when a single, well aimed bullet from a small pistol can do the job? Whether you’re in the desert or a dangerous construction site, making sure there’s something explosive to blast can be the swiftest way to take care of business.

8. No door is truly locked

Part of a versatile action hero’s repertoire is being able to blend in when necessary, whether it’s to get behind enemy lines or sneak into guarded buildings. Blood & Truth gives you the chance to put Ryan’s well-trained lockpicking skills to use in order to track down essential items like security passes to get around when blowing things up isn’t an option.

9. Turn air vents into shortcuts

Sneaking into a mob boss’s highly fortified casino may be one thing, but trying to get to your deeply entrenched and guarded target is entirely another. Which is where air vents come in handy, letting you get around the goon-packed hallways without being seen, before popping out all guns blazing.

10. Become the ultimate weapons master

While the average person may struggle to pat their head and rub their tummy at the same time, there are no such multitasking problems in Blood & Truth. Taking down bad guys, twirling a pistol, dodging enemy fire and catching a grenade, all in quick succession is just a typical day’s work. Your hands are not only tools of destruction – you also make it look effortlessly cool.

11. Turn windows into emergency exits

It isn’t always possible to coolly walk away from every literal and figuratively explosive encounter you get into. Occasionally it’s more prudent to beat feet and get out via the nearest possible exit… even if it’s a closed window. Being able to escape through a plate of glass while you’re under fire and several stories high, and still come out without a scratch, is an action hero staple – and you’ll look perfectly unflappable each time.
