Vendetta Online Announces Cross-Platform VR Support
Guild Software Inc. has today announced plans to launch Vendetta Online for multiple virtual reality (VR) platforms during the first half of 2016. Supported devices will include the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive on Windows, and the Samsung Gear VR on Android. A prototype of Vendetta Online for the Samsung Gear VR will be showing with Oculus and ARM on the show floor of the 2016 Game Developer’s Conference (GDC), San Francisco, next week.
Featuring existing, non-VR support for Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, and iOS, all platforms, the VR iteration will see all players participating in the same unified galaxy. Promising a seamless transition between platforms, Vendetta Online‘s persistent massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) gameplay could potentially be the first in the genre to bring non-VR and VR players together.
“We’re incredibly excited to show our players the galaxy of Vendetta Online in this immersive medium,” said John Bergman, CEO of Guild Software. “Back in 2013, our game was widely reported as the first MMORPG to officially release support for the nascent Oculus Rift, and we’re thrilled to see that vision coming to fruition, across both PC and mobile devices.”
According to Guild Software Inc., VR support for additional platforms, such as Mac and Linux, will also be considered, but may not be available at the same launch time. VRFocus will be present at GDC next week and will continue to bring you all the latest details on Vendetta Online.
