After releasing its successful virtual reality (VR) title Wilson’s Heart in collaboration with Oculus Studios, Twisted Pixel has now revealed details on its next Oculus Rift exclusive project, a spy caper called Defector.
Moving away from the dark, twisted narrative of its debut experience, with its black and white visual style and point to point teleportation, Defector is a no holds bar action adventure, arming players with guns and gadgets galore in a bid to complete impossible objectives.
The team explain on the Oculus Blog: “Whether you’ve imagined navigating high-stakes situations with James Bond’s British charm or La Femme Nikita’s ruthless efficiency, Defector puts your wits to the test in a series of pulse-pounding missions. With gadgets, intel, and a little bit of luck on your side, you just might make it out alive.”
Action seems to be the name of the game in Defector, with Twisted Pixel set to deliver massive set pieces alongside branching gameplay so that even the smallest decision can have an effect on a missions outcome.
As the announcement trailer neatly showcases, players will have to become adept at switching between dual wielding pistols, dodging not only bullets but exploding aircraft, then occasionally dabbling in some hand-to-hand combat when the need arises, alongside making those important life or death calls.
Defector has been slated for released on Oculus Rift later in 2018. If you want to check out the quality of Twisted Pixel’s work then you can always read VRFocus’ review of Wilson’s Heart. As further details about Defector are released VRFocus will keep you updated.
