Indie developer Axyos Games has launched a Steam Greenlight campaign for its upcoming virtual reality (VR) compatible multiplayer first-person shooter (FPS), RIP. The title hopes to secure enough positive votes to launch on Valve’s digital store come full release. Axyos Games is currently running a crowd funding campaign for the experience over on Russian site Boomstarter. If it proves successful then the title will arrive with full support for the Oculus Rift VR headset.
RIP is described by its creators as a mix of the FPS genre and multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) titles. It’s apparently best thought of as a ‘classic shooter with Dota-mechanics’. The setting appears to be present day, using current weaponry. The developers hope to create a consistently tense online FPS in which players will be able to control different characters, using a unique combination of their skills and tactics.
Axyos Games noted that the Oculus Rift support was ‘impressive’. A ‘Wargame’ option will also be included for clan players in which they fight for territories.
It’s not clear just when RIP will launch should it pass its respective campaigns. VRFocus will continue to follow the title’s progress and report back with all the latest updates.
