VitruviusVR has announced virtual reality action adventure game Arken Age for PlayStation VR2 and SteamVR. It will launch in early 2024.
Here is an overview of the game, via VitruviusVR:
Arken Age is a single-player virtual reality adventure set in the Bio-Chasm, a terraformed fantasy world created by the Grand Arborist. In the game you can engage in full physics-based combat using Arkenite infused swords and guns; and freely explore the densely filled environments under siege by Hyperion’s neural corruption.
Physics Combat and Custom Virtual Reality Weaponry
When developing Arken Age our biggest focus was on realistic physics-based combat, one-of-a-kind virtual reality weaponry, and creating a full-length campaign with an endless replayability mode. In the game you begin with 3 fully customizable weapons and can collect 30 unique weapon mods in total. Each attachment is custom designed for VR gameplay, ranging from the Hyperion God Axe; a throwing axe that can be recalled at your will, the Tempered Cutter; a deployable saw blade that dismembers enemy limbs, and the Astral Ballista; a high-powered chargeable bow, to name a few.
Full Virtual Reality Body and Movement Freedom
In the game you are a biological alien creation, built with full locomotion and the ability to freely jump, crouch, climb, and swim. You can view your full body in first-person and holster all weapons physically onto your character. Although, you’re not the only versatile creature in this world, enemies can dynamically jump at you, climb buildings, and switch between long-range gun combat and close-range sword combat in real-time. You can physically push enemies, knock them down by sweeping out their feet, impale and pick them up, blast them out of mid-air, and dismember all mechanical joints. With unpredictable enemies and full movement freedom, Arken Age provides an unparalleled combat
