Daydream View has now been revealed to the world at a Google event in San Francisco, California. The short conference focused on the hardware the company is currently developing along with a small roster of software for the new head-mounted display (HMD). The one videogame to feature was CCP Games’ Gunjack 2 (previously Gunjack NEXT) which showcased use of the Daydream controller. Now CCP Games has revealed further information n the title.
The videogame is now called Gunjack 2: End of Shift and it’ll be a Daydream exclusive. Developed by CCP’s Shanghai studio, Gunjack 2: End of Shift utilises the Daydream controller to aim and shoot down the hordes of enemies that fly in, deploy special weapons and activate shields. A new feature over the previous title are daily generated missions, ensuring an extra replayability factor for gamers.
“We are extremely excited for the Daydream platform and what it means for VR” said Hilmar Veigar Pétursson, CEO of CCP. “Collaborating with Google and developing Gunjack 2 for their VR platform has been an amazing experience. We started a new chapter for CCP a year ago with the launch of our first VR title, and now the upcoming release of its sequel on the Daydream platform bears testament to our commitment to VR in gaming and entertainment.”
“Gunjack 2’s core gameplay is all about destroying masses of enemies, and Google’s Daydream controller allows us to make that experience even more natural and fun,” said Jean-Charles Gaudechon, executive producer of Gunjack 2: End of Shift. “In Gunjack 2, we’re pushing the limits of what a mobile VR game can be.”
Just like the original Gunjack, in Gunjack 2: End of Shift players take control of a ship mounted turret on a vast mining ship called the Kubera. It’s up to players to defend to ship at all costs.
