Fast-paced sci-fi shooter Evasion has been highly anticipated by virtual reality (VR) enthusiasts since it was originally revealed by developers Archiact. Lucky players at the Intel Extreme Masters event in Oakland, California will have a chance to get hands-on with the title, which will be playable for the first time at the event.
The Intel Extreme Masters Expo will be showcasing a number of Esports titles for show attendees as some of the best competitive gamers in the world compete on stage. Among the titles being demonstrated will be a build of Evasion, a co-operative multiplayer first-person shooter featuring carefully crafted visuals and free-move locomotion.
Every attendee who takes part in Evasion‘s multiplayer demo will receive an exclusive t-shirt and the chance to have a meet up with the Evasion development team at the event. Attendees at the event can also try and claim a t-shirt via Twitter by using the #EvasionVR hashtag.
Visitors to the Archiact booth can also admire the powerful Multi VM PC powering the demo for all four players. The PC sports an 18-core Intel Core i9 X-series processor, with a water cooling system to help keep the monstrously powerful processor from overheating.
VRFocus previously managed to get a hands-on preview of Evasion, where it was reported: “The gunplay in Evasion is key. Players are able to weaken foes as they await support from their teammates, and even use environmental objects – such as causing a rockslide – to cause damage. Given the emphasis on co-operative play and replayable missions with randomised objectives and enemy encounters, it’s wholly possible that Evasion could become the Borderlands of VR; a unique twist on the FPS genre that would most certainly be welcome.”
Intel Extreme Masters, Oakland is taking place from 18th-19th November, 2017 at the Oracle Arena. Further information can be found on the Intel Extreme Masters website.
VRFocus will continue to report on VR-related events.
