Indie developer Axyos Games is one step closer to making its upcoming virtual reality (VR) compatible first-person shooter (FPS) RIP a reality. The title has this week passed its Steam Greenlight campaign, granting it access to be sold on Valve’s digital store come full release. The campaign has been passed in just under a month, having originally been posted on 29th May 2014. The title is set to launch with full support for the Oculus Rift VR headset.
RIP is a multiplayer FPS that takes inspiration from multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) titles such as DOTA 2. It boasts a modern setting in which players don’t level up a persistent character with custom perk and weapon sets. Instead, each match starts players out fresh, with levelling working within the space of that match itself. The title insists that players must use skills and tactics to win rather than depending on assisted power ups.
Axyos Games hopes to launch RIP in 2015 on PC. A more specific release date is yet to be announced. The experience is being developed using Epic Games’ Unreal Engine. Possible Mac and Linux versions of the title are yet to be confirmed. A full multiplayer match can be seen here. VRFocus will continue to follow the title’s progress, reporting back with any more updates on its development.
