VR Visio games have announced their latest virtual reality (VR) videogame, Special Forces VR. Powered by Unreal Engine, the videogame will be releasing on all the big head-mounted display (HMD) devices; PlayStation VR, HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.
Special Forces VR will support a variety of different VR peripherals, including the PlayStation Aim controller, but also special devices such as haptic suits, guns and “locomotion simulators.” VR Visio says this makes the title perfect for esports, though the benefit of VR in esports remains to be seen.
The game plays out essentially like Counter Strike, with players choosing either military or terrorist factions and playing against one another in a variety of game modes – but with the game built from the ground up for VR.
Players will be able to enjoy cross-platform play and wide, open immersive worlds to shoot enemies in – in VR, weapons and tools like riot shields really take on a new dimension when compared to when featured in traditional shooters, with motion controls allowing you to angle and move the shield in different directions, while blind-firing your weapon.
If you’re interested in signing up for beta tests, you can do so on VR Visio’s website here. Beta tests will go live in September 2017.
