There’s less than four weeks to go until Impulse Gear release first-person shooter (FPS) Farpoint on PlayStation VR. Set to become one of the biggest releases for the head-mounted display (HMD) this year, the studio has announced the title has gone gold and revealed a brand new story trailer.
Farpoint is a single-player narrative experience that also features an online co-op mode. As the video showcases, you play as a member of an expeditionary team going to investigate a spatial anomaly. As is usually the case in space, events take a turn for the worst and you find yourself stranded on an distant hostile world with your only chance of survival and escape being to uncover its secrets and reunite with your team.
While Farpoint will be sold as a standalone video game, it’s been heavily promoted alongside the PlayStation VR Aim Controller. As VRFocus reported back in March, the physical or digital copy of Farpoint will retail for $49.99 USD/$59.99 CAN/€59.99 EUR/£49.99 GBP. While the bundle will cost $79.99/$99.99/€89.99/£74.99.
Impulse Gear has been working directly with Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) on the development of the Aim controller, ensuring it accurately simulates the look and feel of a weapon in your hands, including a virtual scope and built in haptic feedback.
Farpoint will feature four online co-op levels at launch, each level is designed to challenge the combined firepower of two players with teams competing for the highest score.
