Single-player first-person shooter Crisis VRigade 2 launched as a Steam Early Access title last month, maturing the franchise from the 2018 original. Developer Sumalab announced this week that Crisis VRigade 2 will be coming to PlayStation VR next week as well as mentioning an Oculus Quest version in the works.
Sumalab co-founder Diego Martin took to Twitter this week to confirm Crisis VRigade 2‘s launch on Tuesday 14th July for PlayStation VR. He also noted that the videogame will support the PlayStation Aim controller to enhance the gameplay experience.
Responding to a tweet, Martin also confirmed development is underway on an Oculus Quest version, although there’s still a way to go: “It’s early for rejoicing, but we’ve made some promising advances with Quest version.” It’s not surprising that Sumalab has its eyes on the standalone headset due to its continued popularity and the sales revenue figures Facebook keeps releasing. For the time being Oculus Quest owners can still play Crisis VRigade by sideloading it through SideQuest.
Crisis VRigade 2 is expected to be in Early Access for PC VR headsets including Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Valve Index for the next six months. The sequel has moved away from the original’s low-poly style, creating a more realistic shooter in the process. In its current state, the entire campaign is playable, designed around physical gameplay, plenty of weapons and boss fights. It still retains the difficulty for those looking for a challenge.
As development continues Sumalab plans on making the whole experience ‘more dynamic’ as well as adding a multiplayer co-op feature. In its most recent update Crisis VRigade 2 has seen the AI improved, the difficulty curve smoothed out and support for bHaptics’ TactSuit range added.
VRFocus will continue its coverage of Crisis VRigade 2 as Sumalab releases further updates for the tactical FPS and continues its platform expansion support.
