Today Anshar Studios has announced that its PvP space combat experience, Detached, will be leaving Early Access on Steam and Oculus Home next month, and to celebrate the studio has released a new story trailer.
The video is an animated intro to the story arc of Detached, which goes:
“Once-thriving human colonies in the far reaches of the cosmos are today just useless scrap. But to some they are no mere collections of metal. Space scavengers traverse the galaxy in search of spoils. A deserted space station seems like a real treasure for two scavengers looking for loot. Another routine salvage. Everything is going according to plan. Suddenly, system alerts indicate a problem in the cargo area. It turns out that a group of scammers has infiltrated the station and will do anything to seize the its precious cargo. The startup procedure has been initiated… There’s no time for retreat…”
Detached is designed around multiplayer capture-the-flag combat, pitting users against each other in zero-g, utilising shields, boost, and EMP rockets to outwit opponents.
There’s an additional single-player mode to master those flying skills, alongside puzzles and a fully orchestrated score composed by Mikołaj Stroiński (The Witcher 3).
While built for virtual reality (VR) head-mounted displays (HMDs), Detached will come to standard desktop PC’s with a launch later in 2017.
The Early Access version is available to purchase now off the relevant HMD store, and checkout VRFocus’ preview of the single-player, saying that: “The controls, look and feel of Detached are excellent.”
Detached will launch for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and OSVR on 18th May, 2017. Checkout the latest trailer below and for further updates, keep reading VRFocus.
