Real time strategy/Tower defence game Korix for the PlayStation VR (PSVR) will be the first title on the headset to run 120 frames per second (FPS) natively on both the PlayStation 4 Pro and PlayStation 4 models.
Research has established that higher framerates in VR games can help mitigate some of the issues that a percentage of users experience when using VR, such as motion sickness, eye strain and headaches.
Korix involves the player taking on the role of a commander of a deep space fleet aiming to take down the enemies who destroyed your homeworld. The gameplay is reminiscent of real-time strategy (RTS) games from the 90’s, with some elements from modern tower defence games thrown in. The game uses a block, retro visual style, with much of the action taking place on mostly flat, polygonal planes in a variety of shapes that float in an outer-space background.
Korix features a 3-5 hours single-player campaign, skirmish modes and multiplayer modes. In multiplayer, players can team up with each other for 2-4 player co-op or go head-to-head in versus mode.
The official release date has not yet been confirmed, but a spokesperson for the developer has said to expect an announcement ‘In a matter of weeks.’.
