Last year Anshar Studios released its first virtual reality (VR) title on Steam Early Access, a space combat experience called Detached for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. Today the developer has announced Detached has fully released for both platforms.
If you’ve not been following VRFocus’ coverage of Detached, the title is a PvP shooter that puts players inside a space suit and challenges them to fight one other player in deep space. With zero-g controls, alongside items such as rockets, shields and boost, it’s a game of cat and mouse among derelict space stations and asteroids.
Detached also has a single-player campaign with puzzles to solve, that gives players the opportunity to fine tune their flying skills before heading into the multiplayer mode.
“Detached breaks all the barriers that have been put in place so far in the creation of VR games,” says Łukasz Hacura, CEO of Anshar Studios. “Most current VR games are aimed at minimizing the problem of experiencing nausea while playing. In Detached, the player’s unlimited freedom is a fundamental aspect of the game”.
Earlier this week VRFocus reviewed the experience, giving it 4-stars and saying: “Detached has great elements to it, it looks good, the controls are excellent, and it offers some unique combat gameplay.”
VRFocus will continue its coverage of Anshar Studios, reporting back with the latest updates.
