A few days ago Coatsink Software revealed new details about its upcoming virtual reality (VR) role-playing game (RPG) Augmented Empire, detailing the stellar voice cast as well as a couple of new screenshots. Well the indie studio has more news to share today, announcing that the VR title will launch next month, exclusive to Samsung Gear VR.
Augmented Empire takes place on an island called New Savannah, set in an isolated neo-noir metropolis whose society has been divided into three tiers by the ‘Citizen Grade System’, with citizens deemed of high value to society living an opulent lifestyle at the soaring heights of the city, while those seen as less savoury have to live their lives in the squalid depth’s.
The videogame mixes up RPG elements with turn-based action. It’ll feature 26 missions across 60 environments which the studio says should provide around 10 plus hours of gameplay. There will be six characters to control, each of which will be upgradable.
As previously reported voicing some of the characters are: Kate Mulgrew (Orange is the New Black, Star Trek Voyager); Doug Cockle (The Witcher Series); Garrick Hagon (Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope, Horizon: Zero Dawn) and Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Paul).
Augmented Empire will be available to purchase for Samsung Gear VR on 13th July 2017 for $9.99 USD, £7.99 GBP and €9.99 EUR.
