In March this year UK-based developer Lupus Solus unveiled a Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign and a Steam Greenlight campaign for its virtual reality (VR) title Push for Emor. While the videogame was Greenlit on Steam it was unsuccessful in its Kickstarter, but that didn’t stop the studio and now the project has a release date on Steam Early Access.
Push For Emor is an open world first-person shooter (FPS) with RPG elements set across a sci-fi universe. Players will be able to battle across 11 planets and space scenes, explore space stations, and disable enemy craft, boarding and looting them.
Initially the early access version of Push for Emor will feature four planets. The planets include mission driven content, combat, vehicles and exploration with a resource planet having harvesting structures to build and defend via movable turrets.
Lupus Solus is looking to stay in early access for around six months during which time it states: “As development continues there will be polish and tweaks applied to the first 4 planets. The next 2 solar systems, which have 3 planets each, will be released to early access buyers as each solar system is completed.”
Being an RPG naturally Push for Emor has a back story in which players take the role of an undercover agent. The Emorian Empire has been expanding its territories which includes into Justicar federal space. It’s up to players to join a resistance group allied with Justicar and help them clear the way for official Justicar forces to regain the lost areas.
The videogame will support both Oculus Rift and HTC Vive head-mounted displays (HMDs), and for all the latest news on Push for Emor, keep reading VRFocus.
