Poppermost Productions released it’s open world virtual reality (VR) skiing game SNOW on Early Access back in October 2013 however on the 28th March 2015 the title will be available for a closed BETA. The videogame allows players to freely ski wherever they want in an open world environment. SNOW is compatible with the second development kit (DK2), Oculus Rift’s head-mounted display (HMD).
SNOW is a freeroam winter sports experience which is intended to be authentic and to give a realistic depiction of skiing. The title will feature a mode in which the player can compete by scoring points and completing events. Another feature is character customisation, as you can dress your avatar in real life skiing brands. When exploring the open-world environment, there are several places which the player is able to discover, like a crashed aircraft. Poppermost Production’s plan to add in more features to the game like snowboarding, purchasable content and multiplayer.
Those who have already purchased the Early Access will get to play the BETA 2 weeks earlier on the 10th March but those who haven’t will have to wait until the 28th March.
VRFocus will keep you updated on the progress of SNOW.
