Earlier this week the much anticipated virtual reality (VR) videogame Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner – Mars released on the PlayStation Store and Steam. Now, to mark the release of the action packed title Konami have revealed a new trailer not only offers seven minutes of gameplay and action but also showcases helps to set up the story of the title to give players an idea of what to expect in this legendary title.
This new VR release sees the return of a cult classic that was first released for the PlayStation 2 and has since been described as being best experienced in VR. Players take control of Orbital Frames and engage in intense battles that will have them moving freely across the battlefield to leverage a range of powerful and visual interesting attacks to win the fight and save the day. Thanks to the fact the the mechs fly around, players will be truly immersed within the experience and feel like they are piloting the Orbital Frames themselves.
The set up for this title, which is the second entry in the series, is listed on the store page as: “The year is 2174 and the despotic BAHRAM military organisation is using new Orbital Frames robot technology to secure its grip on Mars and Earth. Seizing control of the JEHUTY Orbital Frame, the player is the last hope for the stricken planets. Strike deep at the heart of the BAHRAM army with unrivalled powers!”
VRFocus’ Staff Writer Rebecca Hills-Duty reviewed Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner – Mars praising it saying: “If you can master the somewhat difficult controls, there is a great deal of enjoyment to be found in Zone Of The Enders: The 2nd Runner – Mars. Fans of the series should buy this immediately, and giant mech fans will also want to add it to their libraries. For others, it is certainly worth investigating, though the challenging controls might prove off-putting for some.”
