Developer Survios has revealed that it’s upcoming virtual reality (VR) boxing title Creed: Rise to Glory will be coming to the PlayStation VR platform. The title will allow players the chance to enter the ring and experience the cinematic drama of training with the legendary Rocky Balboa in this immersive sporting title and, for PlayStation VR players there is an exclusive extra.
At lunch, the PlayStation VR release of Creed: Rise to Glory will allow players the chance to train with Rocky Balboa in his youthful fighting prime. This is a different look and feel to Rocky Balboa as Creed’s gruff, streetwise trainer and mentor in both the acclaimed film and Creed: Rise to Glory’s career mode. Bringing him back to his prime adds a new level of excitement to the title for players to enjoy.
As a VR boxing experience, players will be put into the gloves of Adonis Creed on his journey from an underground amateur to a spotlight champion. Creed: Rise to Glory features a ground breaking Phantom Melee Technology system that offers impactful melee combat directly within VR. Whether players choose to follow Creed’s story through to the end or set up their own Exhibition battles against a variety of skilled opponents, every punch, uppercut, and flurry through situational desynchronization, including fatigue, staggering, and knockouts.
VRFocus’ Senior Staff Writer Peter Graham previewed Creed: Rise to Glory on Oculus Rift saying: “Creed: A Rise to Glory may not be promoted as one, but it certainly feels in part like a simulator, with stamina to deal with if players aren’t conservative with their punches. The core experience will centre on the career mode, getting Adonis Creed to the championship as well as playing Exhibition matches. Survios has already established itself as one of VR’s premium content developers, with Creed: A Rise to Glory looking to continue that trend.”
VRFocus will be sure to bring you all the latest from Survios and Creed: Rise to Glory in the lead up to it’s fall 2018 release so make sure to stay tuned for more. Elsewhere, Survios are working on Electronauts, a VR rhythm title which allows users the chance to create their own music and share it with the world. You can learn more about it in VRFocus’ recent interview with Zach Gonzalez from Survios.
