Go on a Space Adventure with Vendetta Online for Google Daydream
The title features cross-platform support including Gear VR.
Last year Guild Software announced plans to bring its massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) Vendetta Online to virtual reality (VR). October saw the title arrive on Samsung Gear VR, and today that support has expanded to Google Daydream.
Vendetta Online enables players to create their own character and roam the stars however they choose, whether that’s a hero fighting the good fight or a criminal looking to loot the next unsuspecting space traveller.
As well as engaging in online space battles, players will be able to trade in a galactic economy, mining valuable resources, whilst helping other players manufacture items and ships. Friends can even team up to attack capital ships or command their own.
“We’re excited to see our title debut on this mobile-VR ecosystem,” said John Bergman, CEO of Guild Software. “The immersion made possible by Daydream, along with the intensity and social dynamics of a true space MMORPG will give people an unforgettable experience.”
The release will allow Daydream users to join thousands of other players online, with cross platform support across VR headset as well as Windows, Mac, Linux, Android and iOS.
The Daydream version features extensive support for its motion controller, so that players can fly and navigate their ships, alongside a special ‘laser pointer’ mode for selecting distant objects.
That’s not all. A new Vendetta Online HD version – separate from Android’s historical package of Vendetta Online – will include optimizations or modern ARMv8 CPUs and OpenGL ES 3.1, along with higher definition texture assets.
Vendetta Online HD is a hybrid VR+touchscreen app, and is priced at $2.99 USD on Google Play.
VRFocus will continue its coverage of Vendetta Online, reporting back with any further updates.
