There are many virtual reality (VR) skeptics, but this years’ Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) proved that VR games are finally becoming more refined and of higher quality. Besides trying to find VR games at the major conferences like the Sony and Bethesda conferences, there were plenty of other VR games out on the E3 show floor which you might have missed. You had to wait an average of two hours to play Seeking Dawn. Luckily VRFocus was able to get hold of Freeman Fan, the CEO and Founder of Multiverse Entertainment for an interview.
Freeman explains how action survival game Seeking Dawn is one of the largest VR games of 2017 with a minimum of 10 hours to complete the campaign. What makes this so interesting is that the campaign also supports multiplayer co-op, taking inspiration from games like Minecraft and Don’t Starve. With crafting, cooking, looking for treasure, exploring caves and dungeons as well as survival elements of sickness, hunger and oxygen, it can take up to 100 hours to finish the game. On top of the long hours of gameplay, Seeking Dawn also has an epic story line. Set in the future where humanity has colonised the stars, players find themselves in the middle of a war for independence, where the entire Solar System controlled by the corrupt United Federation of Sol (UFS) are fighting the Republic of Alpha Centauri (RAC) military. The gaming will be coming out this Fall on the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and and might be coming to PlayStation VR and Windows Mixed Reality Headset.
Freeman explains how Multiverse Entertainment is looking to fill the gap in the market for large multiplayer action games, and believes they’re the ones to fill it. He also talks about what their next game and what Multiverse might be doing in MR. Watch the video below to find out more.
