A couple of weeks ago VRFocus reported on Survios announcing the released date and pre-order details for Creed: Rise to Glory for PlayStation VR. Today, the studio has confirmed that the September launch will be multi-platform, including Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and at virtual reality (VR) arcades worldwide.
Creed: Rise to Glory is a single-player boxing experience based on the movie franchise. You play Adonis Creed as he looks to ascend from scrappy underdog to world-class fighter, making a name for himself in his own right. Being the film tie-in that it is, Creed: Rise to Glory will enable you to train with Sylvester Stallone’s iconic character, the legendary Rocky Balboa, in gyms from the franchise, including Mighty Mick’s and Front Street Gym.
Aiming to offer an active 1:1 boxing experience that’ll get you sweating in no time, you’ll be able to train with Balboa, learning how to throw a decent jab or hook against targets. Once the basic have been mastered then it’s onto a proper bout, facing the first of many opponents in Career mode on the way to the top.
Unlike other boxing videogames, Creed: Rise to Glory features Survios’ newest VR innovation: Phantom Melee Technology. This aims to make the whole experience more intense, having greater impact on the player by slowing them down due to stamina or mimicking out-of-body sensations like getting staggered or knocked out.
Creed: Rise to Glory will hit PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and 500 VR arcades on 25th September, 2018. Still available to pre-order for PlayStation VR, Steam users can also pre-order the title, with a 10 percent discount available until 26th September.
Having previewed Creed: Rise to Glory on Oculus Rift during the Game Developers Conference (GDC) 2018 in March, VRFocus expects this will continue the studio’s trend in high quality VR experiences, following Electronauts and Sprint Vector this year.
