After the announcement of Space Rift in May and the recent release of a mixed-reality announcement trailer, the new gameplay trailer depicts what adventures and new challenges VR pilots can expect. Space Rift will be released for PC and all major VR headsets on August 2, 2016. Watch the new gameplay trailer here.
Space Rift: A complete VR game experience
The action-packed, story-driven space adventure Space Rift is being specifically designed and optimized for VR headsets such as Oculus Rift, HTC Vive und PlayStation VR. The cinematic story paired with the gameplay and level design is what makes Space Rift unique in this regard. Space Rift thrills players with a movie-like presentation, which comes to the fore due to scripted missions and dozens of dialogues with detailed characters. Unlike other VR mini-games and tech-demos, which have been released for VR so far, Space Rift is a complete game experience.
About Space Rift: The player will become part of the story
Earth has been devastated entirely by a destructive meteor shower, thus forcing humanity to emigrate to Mars. Humans were enslaved by the organizations WEYSS and PANDORA and carve out a miserable existence on the xeric red planet. Players slip into the role of the veteran pilot Casey, who takes on the hostile organizations in order to liberate humankind from their suffering on Mars. Radio transmissions, newscasts and the interaction with the fondly designed non-player characters on the base station continuously add new thrilling details about the on-going conflict and also reveal pieces of background information.
Real cockpit feeling in outer space
The combination with Virtual Reality leads Space Rift to provide a unique and immersive gaming experience. This motivates the player to advance the story autonomously and to put together newly revealed pieces in the puzzle. Concurrently, the space ship evolves into being the player’s favorite companion – not only in connection with the quest to free humankind, but also in the course of exploring the whole galaxy. The particular segments of the playable outer space were designed individually by the level designers and therefore offer a vast amount of variety – also thanks to impressive visual effects.
Space Rift will be available for PC and all major VR headsets on August 2, 2016 at a price of USD/ EUR 19,99 (GBP 14,99): http://store.steampowered.com/app/437080. The Android GEAR-VR version of Space Rift will also be released in Summer 2016 and the PlayStation VR version is planned for Fall 2016.
