Bandai Namco to Publish VR FPS Get Even
Virtual reality (VR) fans may well have heard of Get Even over the course of the past few years. This upcoming first-person shooter (FPS) from Polish team The Farm 51 has pledged support for VR head-mounted displays (HMDs) in the past, and the studio recently launched a VR-dedicated division in Reality 51. It’s been a while since fans have seen much of Get Even itself, however, with The Farm 51 teasing that it was working with a ‘global publisher’ back in March 2015. That publisher has now confirmed to be Bandai Namco.
The company will be bringing the title to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC in 2016. While Oculus Rift support has previously been suggested, it’s not clear exactly which HMDs Get Even will support, including potential integration with the Project Morpheus HMD on PlayStation 4. The title aims to be a psychological thriller turned into a videogame, combining FPS action with an in-depth and ‘personal’ story. Early on its development the studio revealed that the title would have multiplayer elements similar to Dark Souls, where players can invade each other’s campaigns.
“We’re pleased to be working with Bandai Namco Entertainment to publish Get Even globally,” The Farm 51 Developer Director Wojciech Pazdur said of the news. “We are convinced that they are deeply committed to help us make this game a unique experience. Not only will Bandai Namco publish Get Even, but they are also helping us on a production level and fully support our vision of the game. We believe Get Even is an innovative landmark in the FPS genre and expertise provided by BANDAI NAMCO will be a very important factor in helping us realize its potential.”
This marks Bandai Namco’s second VR-supported title, the first being Slightly Mad Studios’ Project CARS. VRFocus will continue to follow Get Even closely, reporting back with the latest updates on the title.
