For the launch of PlayStation VR Frame Interactive released its football inspired virtual reality (VR) title Headmaster. Today the studio has announced the surprise launch of Headmaster for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.
As the videogames title implies, Headmaster is all about using your head to return balls, aiming for targets to attain the highest score. Rather than just a straight port, Frame Interactive has been working on several new features for the PC version.
Firstly, there’s a new practice zone for you to try your skills at before heading into the main campaign. The area has unlimited chances and no pressure to win, with added motion trails to the balls to help hone in on targets. A massive, vacant stadium level has been included to offer more variety.
The Party Mode – of which there was one level for PlayStation VR’s launch and then expanded upon in March – now has single-player support. So there’s Pass and Play local multiplayer score competition with 11 levels or Lonely Party Mode if no ones about.
Lastly there’s No Hands Support which is currently in beta. After running tests with Oculus Rift and HTC Vive the studio received feedback that the videogame felt weird without hands – even though it’s all about using your head – so the team created Handball Avoidance Mitts for those that want them. The feature isn’t automatically enabled, you just have to activate it in the options menu.
Headmaster goes live on the Oculus store and Steam today. For any further updates keep reading VRFocus.
