For those that have the stomach for all the jumping, wall running and mid-air acrobatics, Mixed Realms’ Sairento VR is one of the more interesting first-person shooters (FPS) available for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. Having garnered a strong fan base since its Early Access debut back in 2016, the studio has just announced it’ll be expanding support to PlayStation VR in Q1 2019.
Mixed Realms has teamed up with Perp Games to make the release possible, with the latter’s expertise in bringing VR videogames to physical retailers being used to provide PlayStation VR owners with the choice of a digital download or on disk.
On the announcement Rob Edwards, MD of Perp Games said in a statement, “As one of the best-selling PC based VR games ever released, PSVR fans are in for a real treat. It is a great honour to release the physical version of Sairento and to work with such a talented group of developers as Mixed Realms.”
Sairento VR takes the action up a notch by combining both ranged gunplay and close-quarters melee combat, with somersaults, multiple jumps, side flips, wall runs, and power slides, allowing players to hack, slash, duck, and weave through hordes of enemies.
At their disposal are an arsenal of weapons includes katanas, guns, bows, kunais and throwing glaives which can be enhanced with items called relics. Additionally, players also possess the ability to slow time down, enabling them to gracefully switch from one artistic execution to another.
“We are very pleased to have found a reliable partner in Perp Games to bring our game to PSVR gamers in the US, Europe and the Middle East,” said Aldric Chang, CEO of Mixed Realms. “We are confident that with their strong repertoire, fans of Sairento will soon be able to get their hands on a physical copy in retail stores in these countries.”
