Today Oculus Connect has returned for its fourth annual showcase, with event attendees able to get their hands on some of the latest titles and listen to talks covering future ideas and advancements in virtual reality (VR). Of course the main showpiece is the keynote speech which opens proceedings, and there’s been plenty going on with Bellevue-based game developer, Camouflaj’s first VR videogame being announced, République VR.
Camouflaj has rebuilt its award-winning stealth title for PlayStation 4, PC, Mac, iOS and Android from the ground up for virtual reality (VR). République VR is set in a dystopian surveillance state, where the player must use their VR device to hack into the nation’s elaborate network and guide a captive woman on a treacherous journey to freedom.
“From the very beginning, the team set out to build the quintessential mobile VR game,” said Camouflaj designer, Ryan Payton in a statement. “We are so excited to finally lift the veil on this incredibly challenging project. I’m happy to say that the hard work has paid off—République VR plays and looks absolutely stunning despite the obvious hardware limitations.”
République VR will include all five episodes of the stealth series when it launches this winter for Gear VR, compatible with Samsung Galaxy S7 and S8, whilst supporting three input methods: touchpad, motion controller, and Bluetooth controller.
VRFocus will be at Oculus Connect 4 (OC4) for both days, so come back for the latest news and announcements.
