If PlayStation VR fans where worried about the amount of content coming to the headset this year then yesterday’s PSVR Spotlight should’ve easily put those worries to bed. Six new titles were revealed with two of them being exclusives, Doom 3: VR Edition and nDreams’ latest shooter Fracked.
From the team behind Phantom: Covert Ops, Fracked adopts a far more action-oriented stance, run and gun style mechanics and outlandish gunfights. The storyline sees you become the reluctant hero, fighting an army of gun-wielding, interdimensional enemies called the ‘Fracked’, all inside a remote mountain facility.
Completely ditching subtlety and stealth, the videogame allows you to ski, run, climb, base jump and zipline around the environments however you choose to gain the upper hand. So elements like skiing will require you to physically lean to steer and control yourself through the snow whilst shooting enemies. Fracked also offers a 1:1 grabbable cover system for dynamic shootouts whilst the weapons will have tactile reloading mechanics for a realistic feel.
“We wanted to create an uncompromised action-adventure, specifically designed for PS VR,” said David Corless, VP of Publishing at nDreams in a statement. “Fracked has kinetic, explosive combat plus free movement, skiing, climbing and base jumping off buildings… it kicks ass!”
Supporting PlayStation Move controller for PlayStation 4, Fracked will also offer PlayStation 5 enhancements including uncapped dynamic resolution, improved framerate, resolution and loading times.
Fracked will launch exclusively for PlayStation VR this Summer. Also announced for the headset are: Song in the Smoke, I Expect You To Die 2: The Spy and The Liar; After the Fall, and MMORPG Zenith. For further updates on Fracked, keep reading VRFocus.
