Ever wanted to be a superhero in virtual reality (VR)? While Oculus Rift owners are patiently waiting for the launch of Marvel Powers United VR to appear this week, PlayStation VR owners have been able to enjoy their own version Megaton Rainfall since late last year. Today, developer Pentadimensional Games has announced a version for PC headset will be arriving next month.
Via a tweet the studio confirmed that Megaton Rainfall will be coming to Oculus Rift and HTC Vive on 9th August, coming to both Oculus Store and Steam. Also on that day the Nintendo Switch will be getting a version while XBox One will see a release on 5th September.
When Megaton Rainfall launched last year for PlayStation VR and a little while later for standard PC desktop monitors the title only supported DualShock 4 or other normal gamepad controllers. The tweet also mentions full gesture control and PlayStation Move support, to give that added feeling of flying around the planet.
A free-roam mode will also be included in an update next month, giving players freedom to explore. Just like the PlayStation VR Move support however, there’s no confirmed date for these being released in August.
Megaton Rainfall is a first-person superhero videogame in which players must fend off a global alien invasion, all by themselves. They’ll be able to unleash lethal energy blasts at foes whilst flying around the world, but care needs to be taken to avoid inflicting too much collateral damage, destroy too many buildings and it’s game over.
There’s no word on how much Megaton Rainfall will cost on Oculus Store but it already retails for £11.99 GBP on Steam. For any further updates from Pentadimensional Games, keep reading VRFocus.
