There are already a number of boxing vidoegames for virtual reality (VR) headsets, some designed more around arcade action whilst others go for fitness or simulation. This month sees LA-based studio Survios release its third VR title this year, movie tie-in Creed: Rise to Glory. Up to now the developer has said it’ll be a purely single-player affair, that changes today however with the confirmation of a PvP mode.
Revealed via the PlayStation Blog, the PvP mode can be accessed via the Quick Match option, allowing friends or strangers to fight it out in the ring. Few other details have been released regarding the PvP mode, with PlayStation VR owners needing PlayStation Plus to go online.
Creed: Rise to Glory also supports Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, and owners of either headset will be pleased to know the PvP mode will be available for both, arriving on launch day the same as PlayStation VR.
In the videogame 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, leaving his fathers shadow. 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.
Providing an active 1:1 boxing experience that’ll help you work up a sweat, 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.
The multi-platform launch will take place next Tuesday, 25th September, 2018. Creed: Rise to Glory is available to pre-order for PlayStation VR, Steam users can also pre-order the title, with a 10 percent discount available until 26th September. For any further updates keep reading VRFocus.
