Following on from the Bethesda conference at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2018 and the announcement of a number of new virtual reality (VR) titles, VRFocus has some gameplay of Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot to share. After an entertaining and announcement packed conference, Bethesda are keen to showcase their upcoming titles and how VR can offer immersive new experiences.
The announcement of Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot came from Bethesda’s E3 2018 conference alongside the reveal of other VR titles including Prey VR and The Elder Scrolls: Blades. The title will immerse players within the universe of Wolfenstein as they take on the role of a hacker. The description of the title from Bethesda reveals a piece of the story, saying: “Paris. 1980. You’re the best hacker in town. Your mission: Aid the French resistance by taking control of powerful Nazi war machines. Ram, gun down, and burn your way through the City of Love, leaving dead Nazis in your wake. Saddle up, Cyberpilot, you’re one of us now.”
Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot is being developed by MachineGames, the same studio behind the latest entry in the series, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, ensuring this new VR title will be up to the same standard. With such a positive response from Bethesda’s other VR titles, including The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim VR, Fallout 4 VR and DOOM VFR, it would be fair to say that the company would be aiming to deliver the same quality once again. This is also to be expected for the newly announced Prey VR experiences as well.
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 release later this year for PlayStation VR and PC headsets. VRFocus will be sure to keep bringing you all the latest on Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot in the future, along with plenty more from E3 2018, so make sure to stay tuned for more.
