Hybrid real-time strategy (RTS) and tower defence virtual reality (VR) videogame Korix will be coming to the PlayStation VR (PSVR) on 28th March 2017, developer StellarVR has announced.
Korix is an RTS videogame with a retro graphics style. The player takes the role of a commander charged with gathering resources, building defences and battling the enemy against a surreal polygonal space backdrop.
Developer StellarVR announced recently that that Korix would run natively at 120FPS on both the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro. Research has shown that higher frame rates can reduce or eliminate some of the symptoms of motion sickness and headaches that affect some people during prolonged periods of using VR.
Korix features a single-player game comprising roughly 3-5 hours of content as well as a skirmish mode and multiplayer. Multiplayer can be played as 2-4 player co-op or in head-to-head versus mode.
Mark Taylor, lead developer and founder at StellarVR said of the game: “Korix has been a real labor of love over the past year with my sole goal being to release a game with old-school gameplay reminiscent of RTS’s from the late 90’s on PS VR. I’m so excited to see Korix released and more importantly, I finally get to play with you! “
Korix will be released on 28th March. A price point has not yet been confirmed.
