If you’re a big fan of first-person shooters (FPS) and virtual reality (VR) then you might have heard of Gunheart. Created by developers who have a background in FPS videogames such as Gears of War and Halo, Drifter Entertainment, you know you’re in for a good videogame.
Gunheart throws you into a futurist world where you have the options of three weapons. A shotgun, because an FPS is incomplete without one, a crossbow where you can guide and control the bolt with one controller to hit enemies hiding behind cover as well as a giant spinning disc lovingly called the death disc where you can slash straight through enemies.
VRFocus interviewed Ray Davis the CEO of Drifter Entertainment, and he explains that there are three major biomes where you have to adjust your strategy to face various enemies in different play modes. What’s really interesting about Gunheart is that this will always change from mission to mission, so no matter what map or gamemode you choose enemies will always be changing. You won’t play the same game twice. The idea is you can drop in, do a few missions, kill and collect rewards and drop out again. Davis hopes that as VR becomes more popular that online co-op will grow. The title will launch for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift with Touch and whilst you’re waiting in the lobby you can also play around with Tetris blocks or alternatively annoy friends with arrows because friendly fire is on.
