Konami have announced a new demo for the upcoming virtual reality (VR) release of Zone Of The Enders: The 2nd Runner – M∀RS. Titled ORANGE CASE, this is the second demo that allows players a chance to experience the gameplay of the title in an extended look that goes beyond the opening sequences and BAHRAM Anubis Battle seen in the previously released demo.
In this new demo, players are able to see more of the title then they have before in stunning 4K or in full third-person VR as they sit in the cockpit of Jehuty and engage in high-speed robot action. A remastered version of the original title which was released or the PlayStation 2 back in 2002, this new iteration is easily the most detailed and immersive yet. With gameplay that is fast and fluid and a compelling story featuring interesting characters and powerful robots, Zone Of The Enders: The 2nd Runner – M∀RS is definitely one to try out.
The ORANGE CASE demo for Zone Of The Enders: The 2nd Runner – M∀RS is releasing on both PlayStation 4 and Steam today with the PlayStation 4 version live at the time of writing. The Steam version will become available once the store refreshes later on today. This will be replacing the existing demo that is available and offers new content for both does who did or didn’t play the first demo.
VRFocus’ Editor Kevin Joyce previewed the title at Gamescom 2018, saying: “One of the greatest complications in adapting Zone Of The Enders: The 2nd Runner to VR undoubtedly comes in the form of the melee combat. The transition from third- to first-person would be difficult alone, but throwing VR into the mix adds a challenge of the nth degree. Surprisingly, the title manages to break all of the rules of VR design by throwing the player about an environment at high speeds with reckless abandon and – perhaps even more shocking – commits the cardinal sin of forcefully taking control of the player’s viewpoint. Yet somehow, with a cunning use of blinkers and visual cues, Zone Of The Enders: The 2nd Runner – M∀RS manages to remain a comfortable VR experience.”
Zone Of The Enders: The 2nd Runner – M∀RS will launch on the same platforms on September 4th in the Americas and September 6th globally for $29.99 (USD) or the regional equivalent with support for PlayStation VR, HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.
