This week came with the surprising announcement that videogame developer Starbreeze had acquired InfinitEye and its virtual reality (VR) head-mounted display (HMD), which has been renamed StarVR. The kit is to be on display at E3 2015 in Los Angeles 2015 this week running a new experience based on the popular The Walking Dead franchise named Overkill’s The Walking Dead. This experience will be utilising its own input solution in the form of a shotgun accessory.
Starbreeze revealed as much speaking on the Youtube Live show for E3. It was confirmed that the experience is similar to the classic ‘Virtua Cop’ and utilises this accessory that will allow players to player zombies away as if they were right there in the experience. It’s not clear if this shotgun will be arriving with the HMD itself and will be utilised in other experiences.
Releases details for StarVR are yet to be announced. VRFocus will continue to follow the title closely, reporting back with any further updates on it.
