After a short delay CherryPop Games will be launching its virtual reality (VR) football title VRFC: Virtual Reality Football Club simultaneously on PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift and HTC Vive tomorrow. In the run up to release the studio has unveiled several more screenshots and a trailer showcasing what’s instore.
Announced only last month, VRFC: Virtual Reality Football Club was initially due on 27th February, with that date being pushed back until 6th March to aid the multiple platform release.
Having created the ever-popular Sports Bar VR, CherryPop Games turned its attention to a much more difficult premise, VR football. Using Unreal Engine, a technique the studio calls ‘Agile locomotion’, and its K4 physics system, VRFC: Virtual Reality Football Club will allow players to kick, dribble, tackle, pass, cross, head and shoot in VR like never before. The videogame will allow up-to eight players online, offering competitive online and cross-play compatible VR gameplay where all the action and movement takes place in a first-person viewpoint.
As this is a sport expect to work up a sweat as CherryPop Games has mentioned: “it offers an energetic and engaging upper body workout that will keep you on your toes until the final whistle.”
The new screenshots and trailer tease further gameplay footage, showcasing plenty of fast paced football action as players score goals. VRFC: Virtual Reality Football Club certainly looks like its going to be the ideal place for football fans to test their skills against one another. What’s not yet been revealed is how the actual game mechanics work. When you consider the myriad of options available in standard titles like Fifa, how has CherryPop Games managed to transfer football’s nuances to VR?
