Back at E3 2015 in June indie developer Frame Interactive announced a new virtual reality (VR) title named Headmaster which is to be exclusive to the PlayStation VR head-mounted display (HMD). The title uses the kit’s positional tracking to allow players to hit incoming footballs with their head, aiming them at various targets in front of a goal. Oculus Rift fans may be upset that the experience isn’t on the way to the PC-based HMD but Codemodeon may have just the remedy with its new title, Header Goal VR.
A video of Header Goal VR can be seen below. It looks strikingly similar to Frame Interactive’s title, only with players using the Oculus Rift instead of the PlayStation VR to hit a ball to score points. The video also shows the developer showcasing the standing experience to others using a sort of frame to ensure their safety when playing. In fact, some players even hold on to this bracket to give themselves better control of the ball.
It’s not entirely clear if Header Goal VR will be released as a full product given that the footage below shows it to also feature in-game adverts for the likes of Turkish Airlines and more. The action also gets a little more explosive than Headmaster and features some out of place targets such as street lamps and cars.
VRFocus will continue to follow Header Goal VR closely, reporting back with the latest updates on its progress.
