Independent developer Mardonpol Inc. have announced on Reddit that the company are working on an online multiplayer first-person shooter (FPS) for the PlayStation VR that will feature support for the PlayStation Aim controller as a major feature.
The spokesperson on Reddit described the upcoming title as a blend of the Call of Duty series with Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, two of the world’s most popular videogames. Further details are sketchy, with the developers so far only releasing a few examples of character models and animations, but have promised that a teaser trailer will be revealed in the next few weeks. So far, the developers have not confirmed what the title for the videogame will be.
Developer Mardonpol Inc. have previously worked on another virtual reality (VR) title, a multiplayer trivia quiz for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift that was released on Steam in March of 2017. The trivia title, called Quiz Night Tonight! Has largely received positive reception on Steam, with players praising the atmosphere of being on a TV gameshow.
It has been noted that the jump from VR trivia quiz to realistic military shooter with online multiplayer is something of a large jump, but several posters on Reddit have already offered to Beta test the title when it gets to that stage and have begun offering suggestions and support to the developers, with many asking for features such as bot support.
Mardonpol Inc. have a challenge ahead of them to develop such a complex title and keep up with the expectations of a high-end VR FPS.
VRFocus will continue to report on this unnamed project and other upcoming PlayStation VR titles.
