Making Space: Ubisoft Discuss Bringing Multiplayer VR Shooter Space Junkies To Life

Back at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) this year, VRFocus managed to get hands-on with Space Junkies behind closed doors, speaking with Adrian Lacy, Producer of Ubisoft Montpellier about the videogame.

This multiplayer first-person shooter (FPS) was shown again at Oculus Connect 4, where four players could fight two versus two in a futuristic map filled with asteroids. In this interview Lacy not only plays the game, but also explains a bit about the maps, the mods and the characters you can play.

Like in Echo Arena, players are able to see their whole body as an avatar and you are able to pick up different weapons such as the “Sunblaster” and “Bioguns” in interior or exterior maps. Lacy also discusses how Ubisoft created a special VR engine named Brigitte in order to help the VR developers jump in and out of the game.
