All of these were met wit positive prize from fans and each had a high level of qulaity. With MachineGames in the driving seat that same quality is sure to continue within the release of Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot.
VRFocus’ Editor Kevin Joyce got a chance to preview Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot saying: “The demonstration version of Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot allowed the player to try all of these tactical and aggressive manoeuvres along the aforementioned liner path before opening out into an arena battle, replete with dropships and the threat of a boss fight. The demo build was clearly a no-fail variation, meaning it was extremely hard to gauge difficulty and whether or not the somewhat slow-witted enemies would actually provide much of a challenge, however the rampage through the Nazi insignia adorned city streets proved entertaining nonetheless.”
Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot is expected to launch later on in 2018 for PlayStation VR and PC headsets. As more details become available VRFocus will be sure to bring you all the latest, along with more news from E3 2018. To stay up to date keep reading VRFocus and enjoy the gameplay trailer below.
