Snow-bound post-apocalyptic shooter ARKTIKA.1 will soon be heading to Oculus Rift. Pre-orders for the title are now available, and comes with a special bonus of 10% off the regular retail price.
ARKTIKA.1 is set in the year 2120, after global climate change has created a new ice age, forcing the remnants of humanity to struggle for survival in small colonies, scrounging food and resources wherever possible. The player takes the role of a hired gun who has been paid to protect a colony in what used to be Russia. The player will need to use wits and weapons to protect the city from bandits, raiders and violently aggressive monsters.
Available weapons range from the familiar form of a revolver, through to the powerful futuristic Electromagnetic Smart Pistol, which allows players to bend its projectiles to hit enemies hiding in cover. Other weapons such as plasma cannons and laser guns are also available to find, all of which have their own advantages and unique functions.
Movement in ARKTIKA.1 will be handled using fixed point teleportation, where users simply need to ‘look and travel’ to get to where they need to go. The developers at 4A Games concluded this system worked the best for the majority of players.
ARKTIKA.1 is available for pre-order now through the Oculus Store. Usually priced at $29.99 (USD), a pre-order discount of 10% is currently available, reducing the price to $26.99. The title is due to be released on 10th October, 2017.
