The future of gaming/military training programs inches ever nearer with this week’s litany of VR Battle Royale style games. Â
No doubt inspired by the huge success of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, these types of VR games are working to replicate the experience of camping in decrepit buildings, hanging with friends whilst getting shot at, and sitting within a constant, uneasy tension that is furthermore somehow enjoyable.
The greatest looking one that we’ve found is definitely Oneiric Entertainment’s Virtual Battleground. Creative Director Sean Pinnock posted concerning the game on Reddit where he contributed some gameplay footage and requested feedback. It runs a bit janky as it stands, but it’s extremely early in development and so really a proof of concept than anything currently. Â
Most had been impressed with the way the game looked, specifically after only two months of advancement. Particularly impressive is the game’s Skydiving sequence, which is both thrilling to assume in VR, and appears to steer clear of the motion sickness pitfalls that hit a lot of other VR games. Â
The game is pretty nakedly influenced by PUBG, from having a playable, circular radius on the map that will shrinks, to the environment, vehicles, plus weapons â? but that doesn’t imply it doesn’t look like a fantastic, and extremely different way to experience the Battle Royale phenomenon.
Pinnock has also opened up the game to alpha-testing, meaning you can test it out and help provide feedback as the game is completed.
VBG wasn’t the only game to produce a splash this week in the realm associated with VR Battle Royale games, since Koenigz Bullets and More added a Battle Royale mode upon Saturday, and D. W. S’s Until None Remain, which emerged yesterday. Â
