Stress Level Zero is a name that virtual reality (VR) fans may have heard of in the past few weeks. Last month saw the developer announce Hover Junkers, a brand new first-person experience that’s on its way to the HTC Vive head-mounted display (HMD). You may assume that this is the developer’s first VR title, but that isn’t quite the case. The team has this week launched Look Both Ways, a brand new title for the Gear VR mobile HMD.
Look Both Ways is a first-person videogame set in a world that is obsessed with both self-driving cars and fast food. Players are cast as a character that must abandon their car as it’s left in a state of disrepair. To reach their next meal, players must cross super highways, stacked full of fast-moving traffic. As the name suggests, players must carefully study these highways using the Gear VR’s head-tracking, searching for the ideal opportunity to cross.
The title is available now for both the Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy S6 compatible versions of the Gear VR. It’s looking like the third iteration of the HMD could be revealed in the near future; Samsung has set its next press event for 13th August 2015 in New York City, and is widely expected to revealed its next enlarged phone, the Galaxy Note 5. Though unconfirmed, it’s thought that this is the handset that will support the first consumer version of the Gear VR, which co-creator Oculus VR has promised for this year.
VRFocus will continue to follow any and all release for Gear VR, reporting back with the latest updates on them.
